Let’s face it – sometimes it’s hard to admit that our pet might need help with their weight, mostly because we feel it’s a reflection on our ability to take care of them. But it’s so important for pets to maintain a healthy weight so they don’t suffer from scary diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, respiratory disease, kidney disease, and even cancer.
If you want to make a change to your pet’s diet, visit your trusted veterinarian to get a professional diagnosis to determine whether your pet needs to lose weight or gain weight. Getting to your pet’s ideal weight won’t happen overnight, so here are a few useful tips to stay on track to achieve your pet’s healthy weight:
Here are three things you didn’t know about Natural Pet Science’s pet treats:
It’s so easy to give in when your pet is being cute and begging for table scraps – don’t do it! Once you’ve settled on a healthy diet plan, eliminate unhealthy snacks and move on to healthier treats. Natural Pet Science’s Slim’Dog is plant-based with primary ingredients of hemp and cricket, which are both amazing sources of protein and omega fatty acids. The Slim’Dog formula also gets a boost from sweet potatoes and carnitine, known as vitamin Bt, to support the optimal use of body fats and keep blood sugar levels balanced.
Getting your pet to be more active doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it, too. Find activities that both you and your pet will love, from hiking to a picnic site to prop sports like frisbee, you can be as creative as you want when choosing things to do with your fur pal.
Everyone in the family needs to be on board with your pet’s health plan to work, otherwise it won’t work. This will prevent any inconsistency in the agreed food diet and exercise that your pet needs. For instance, make sure that your roommate isn’t sneaking table food to your pet when you’ve been trying to reduce their scrap intake.
