Keeping your pet svelte

Keeping your pooch at a healthy weight is an important part of preventative care. When we see plump pets, they are usually "too well loved" with food. Sometimes it just not knowing how much food is an adequate amount. Below is a chart with food recommendations based on weight. This could vary based on age and activity but it's a good place to start, adjusting as necessary. Although pets do fine with eating once a day, dividing their intake in two feedings can make it easier for them to digest their food and also helps control hunger. If you love your snazzy pet, keep them svelte for a longer, healthier and fun filled life. Resolutions are not just for humans, they're for pets too. Get healthy together!
