Is Your Pet Pudgy?

Picture this… you’ve had a pretty rough day at work and can’t wait to get home.

Meanwhile… here’s what your pet has been thinking while you’ve been gone….

“…Man oh man, this has been a long day.  Where the heck are they?  Wait, what was that?  … was that a car door slamming?  Yes, they’re home. YIPPEE!!  I better get to the door and greet them, because I know what’s coming next.  MY TREAT!!”

That’s what goes through your pet’s head every time you come home. Your pet is totally elated to see you. What’s the first thing you do? You give him a treat.

Sometimes the treat you give him is a little bit bigger scoop of food, or an extra shake of the bag, or maybe a snack or two from the dinner table.

Why do you do this?  It’s because you love your pet with all your heart.  But have you ever stopped to think that those little treats and snacks add up – and may be harmful to him?

In case you didn’t already know, here are some of the dangers an overweight pet can face…

Now, the good news…

If your pet is overweight, it may require something as simple as a diet change… or an extra walk or two every week.  In some cases, it may be something not as obvious.

Either way, let’s put a plan together to ensure that your pet is getting the nutrition he needs, for a healthy, happy life.

Remember… pets can’t make these decisions for themselves.  They need someone who truly cares, and loves them.  That’s YOU!  The one and only person who can give them the happier, healthier, longer life they deserve.
