Meow and pet obesity

Meow and pet obesityYou may have heard about it some while ago, but one of the fattest and biggest cats in recorded human history has passed away due to obesity. Meow, the 39 pound cat’s death did trigger an increased interest across the globe for pet obesity.

In America there are almost 20 million cats who are considered obese. We don’t have to tell you anymore that obesity with pets (cats in this case) can lead to diabetes, heart conditions, joint issues and skin related illness. And on top of this all, their lifespan is dramatically shortened.

We just can’t tell you enough. Don’t let your cat (or any other pet) fall into obesity. Make sure to give them decent amounts of food (not too much, not too little) and keep them in shape through regular exercise. If you’re not completely sure about your pet’s health condition always contact your local vet. They’ll be more than happy to help you out.
