The national pet obesity epidemic is on a serious rise, recent studies reveal. Here’s what you, our clients, should know:

This translates to the following estimates: 43.8 million overweight or obese dogs, 13.9 million obese dogs, 55 million overweight or obese cats, and 26.2 million obese cats. The American Veterinary Medical Association defines clinical pet obesity with a pet being 30 percent above ideal weight.

This research notes cats have a higher risk of developing diabetes than dogs do — with a whopping 1,161 percent increase in the past five years. Dogs, on the other hand, have seen an 850 percent rise—staggering!
