Your dog is overweight or not

Today obesity is not an area of concern for human beings but also for our pet dogs. As we notice from the various news and reports published in media about more and more human beings are getting obese. But the same thing seems to apply on pet dogs.

According to a recent report, 20 to 30 percent dogs in Japan, they are overweight. They all needs to go on a diet or eat some dog weight loss pills.

On most occasions, we have some confusion whether our pet dog is overweight or not. Now we have a solution to this problem. Kao , a Japanese company has created a body fat measuring device especially for dogs. With this device, we can easily find out the fat percentage in dog with a simple tap on the dog's flesh.

I learn a lot from my canine buddy, buttercup, a yorkie chihua mix - she is my jogging partner. She keeps me in shape, but when I think of it, that goes vice versa..

Are we really surprised? Dogs, like humans, have been put on low fat high carb diet. The first ingredient of most dry dog food is a grain...and there is little or no meat actually in the food.

Dogs (and cats!!) are not meant to eat grains. They should be on a mainly meat and bone diet. Some veggies are fine, but they should not be a major part of their diet....and grains are totally absurd!!

Now that the FDA has given the approval of Pfizers new drug for obese dogs owners do not have to worry about their dogs weight. Just pop along to your vet and get the dog a slimming pill. The fact is that the only sure way for a dog to lose weight is by eating a healthier diet and by exercising more. In a recent study in the US it was proved that obese dogs have obese owners. Maybe instead of pill popping they should get out joggfing with their dogs. If you would like to know more about dog health, the history of the dog and dog training you can download a FREE e book at:
