A Fat Dog Is a Big Deal!

Fat Dogs Epidemic in US

Well, we finally made our dogs as needy, neurotic, and fat as the average American!  65% of American dogs are fat.  Many are obese.  No one seems to either 1) know it, or 2) think it’s a big deal.

Here’s how you know if your dog is fat:

  1. Cannot feel or count the ribs.
  2. Cannot see a waistline from the side.
  3. Cannot see a waistline from the top.

Simple.

A fat dog is a “big” deal.

If your dog is fat, he or she will:

  1. Suffer arthritis, bronchitis, collapsing trachea, or heart failure much more easily than a thin dog.
  2. Die 2-4 years before he or she should.

2-4 years to a chihuahua or a labrador is like 20 years for us!  Imagine that!
