The symptoms of obesity of dogs
The first symptom is visual and easy to diagnose: if your dog is really “round”, he might be overweight.
There is also an easy and reliable test: Touch your 4-pawed friend by running your fingers along his ribs to feel the last three. If you cannot feel them without having to put pressure on them, you will have to start doing something to make him lose weight.
The causes and risks of obesity
An overly rich diet, non-adapted or even too much food can lead to obesity in the long run.
The risks associated with being overweight or obese are serious. Your dog is more likely to have movement issues, as well as cardio-respiratory, joint and digestive problems. His immune system may also become weaker and his body more vulnerable to infections.
Finally, his life expectancy will decrease by several months to several years.
Which solutions to reduce dog obesity?
