Canine obesity is a growing epidemic and it is just as dangerous as obesity in humans. If a human is overweight, they can make changes to their lifestyle to quickly shed a few pounds. Unfortunately, it is up to us to manage the weight of our pets. That means if your dog is overweight or obese, you’re the only one that can help him.
The longer you wait, the more severe the health effects will be. Obesity could ultimately take years off your dog’s life. In this week’s episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Prof. Alex German about this topic. He is a Professor of Small Animal Medicine at the University of Liverpool.
