Nowadays, it is a growing (no pun intended) tendency for some of our pets to be overweight. Dogs and cats gain weight when their loving, but maybe uninformed, owners feed them too much, or feed them the wrong food. And as a result, many pets face different health problems because of excess weight.
Fortunately, there is an organization in the U.K., which helps pets lose weight and educate their owners about healthy pet diets. The People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals, or PDSA, started a program called Pet Fit Club in 2005 and has been helping dogs, cats, and even rabbits and hamsters get healthy. It means that our beloved animals can live longer, happier lives.
However, pets are not the only ones making changes. Their owners are also taking part in their wonderful transformation but in a different way. They are given information on how to properly feed their pets, the size of the portions, the right types of foods, and how to monitor their pet’s weight. Experts warn that feeding pets too frequently or giving them food meant for humans can be extremely harmful to their health, so one should break these bad habits.
