SHOCKING STATS ABOUT YOUR DOG’S WEIGHT & HELP TO MANAGE IT
More than half of all dogs are overweight and 98 percent of owners thought it was a “normal body condition,” according to a just-released study by the dog nutrition experts at Just Right by Purina. See the complete, surprising study results in the infographic below.
“Dog owners are in complete control of their pet’s weight,” said Geoff Raudibaugh, area companion animal behavior consultant. “Depending on the breed of dog, one extra pound could equal between three and seven pounds on a human. Proper nutrition is key to weight management. I recommend my clients reevaluate their dog’s activity level, overall health and wellness and weight, according to age every year.”
Forty-two percent of dog owners don’t know what a healthy weight is for their dog. Thanks to advances in technology and research, it’s easier than ever to manage and maintain your dog’s weight.
