Could your dog be obese?

Nothing will make your dog happier than food. But when that 'just once' moment for the little bit extra turns into a daily handout, the result can be obesity.

Sometimes we can love our dogs too much. They need a carefully balanced diet and regular exercise. But our generosity is causing an epidemic of canine obesity with all its related problems.

Has your dog’s bound settled into more of a waddle? He might have a medical problem like hypothyroidism, he might be a susceptible breed. Either way the great news is there is always something you can do to help. What about moving him onto a lighter diet or simply cut down on what he’s eating and increase those enjoyable walks. This can help him and will ensure he is staying well away from all those nasty health problems that can be associated with him being overweight.

One positive step you can take is to switch his diet – gradually. Pedigree™ Weight Control Complete and Can both offer recipes with 30% less fat and fewer calories per meal than our adult ranges. They will help him get back in shape without missing out on all the great taste.
