Give your dog the ingredients for a lifetime of health
Overweight dogs might seem cute, yet owners may be surprised at the toll extra weight takes on their four-legged friend's health. Carrying around those added pounds affects a dog's longevity, mobility and happiness. In some cases, being overweight can cause them to suffer more severe symptoms like hypertension, heart disease and diabetes. In fact, more than half of dogs are considered overweight by their veterinarians, according to the Association for Pet Obesity and Prevention.
