Does Your Pet Have A Weight Problem?

Nearly fifty percent of the dog population around the world is overweight. Despite this, many dog owners are not aware of their pet's weight issue. By simply touching your dog and running your hands through his body, you would have an idea of whether or not your pet has a weight problem that you need to give serious consideration.

If your dog's weight is normal, you would be able to feel its ribs quite easily. For an underweight dog, you would be able to see the ribs even without touching the dog's body. While standing on your pet’s side, check out his abdomen. Underweight dogs will have a tucked or depressed abdomen, while overweight ones have a prominent or bulging abdomen.

Read up on your dog's breed and consult your vet Bend, OR so you can learn about the ideal weight for your dog's specific breed and age.
