Did you know pets are more likely than people to be overweight? A recent study found 60% of cats and 56% of dogs are obese – compared to a third of people.
That’s bad news for the health of our beloved pets. More pets are going to the vet for weight-related conditions, according to PetFirst Pet Insurance data.
Here are ways to help pets exercise: go on regular walks, find more toys for your cats and dogs to play with or consider adopting a second animal from a shelter. Having a friend at home means both animals get more exercise.
