We love our furry children and want what’s best for them. Often, that includes indulging them in an abundance of treats, giving them some of our leftovers from the dinner plate, or just all-out spoiling them. After all, it takes a strong heart to resist the pleading eyes and intense stare you feel burning into you at the table.
Then, horror of horrors. You notice that your pet is looking a little tubby! You aren’t alone.
Almost half of the pets in today’s society are overweight, putting them at a higher risk for developing heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and other serious ailments. Inadequate leash time and too many treats are usually to blame when it comes to chubby pets.
To help your pet lose weight, not only will you have to cut back on the sausage rolls and other good stuff, but you can also step up their exercise a notch. Maybe you could stand to shed a few pounds too, or simply want to get fitter and healthier?
In this blog post, we’ll look at a few simple exercises you can do with your pet to have both of you moving, getting fitter, and hopefully have those kilograms melting away.
