Healthy weight

How can I tell if my pet is overweight?

  • Can't feel ribs anymore
  • Loss of discernible waist
  • Pads of fat over hips and base of tail
  • Waddles when walking
  • Finds it difficult to move
  • Short of breath
  • Bad tempered

It's important to be aware of your pet's weight, as proper growth and weight can help prevent many diseases and disorders associated with obesity, as well as growth-related skeletal disease. If you do notice any of these warning signs, your veterinarian can help recommend changes to keep your pet healthy and fit.
