Is your pet chunky? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone. A new survey finds that 60% of cats and 56% of dogs in the United State are now overweight or obese.
Guilty! My dog Bernie (above right) recently visited the veterinarian for shots and his check-up, and when we took him home there was a special note at the bottom of his papers; “We would like to see Bernie lose some weight!” And the exclamation point WAS at the end of the sentence, so I know they were serious.
Did I know Bernie was getting a little chunky? Mmmm .. yes. I saw it. During the winter, there aren’t as many walks. And my family probably gives out too many treats. So, yeah. Bernie AND his brother Bandit are on a low-treat diet and we’re planning on daily walks as the weather gets nicer.
