What are the best exercises for overweight dogs and cats?

There are many fun, stimulating ways to help your dog or cat enjoy exercise, so be sure to make it part of your daily schedule. Start off slowly and increase exercise gradually as fitness improves.

If your pet has any underlying health conditions, such as joint pain, diabetes or back problems, always speak to your vet first about what types of exercise will be safest for them.

If your pet is overweight and inactive, slowly work towards increasing the frequency of exercise over time, so they can get fitter and become more accustomed to regular physical activity. You can start off with a short daily walk around the block or a gentle game of catch, and work your way up from there.

Starting a diet of specially formulated weight loss dog food or cat food will also support your pet in maintaining a healthy body weight.
