Keeping animals happy and healthy is definitely a priority for pet owners. There are many hot topics that can be encompassed in how to manage and maintain happy, healthy pets. One of the more prevalent topics is obesity. Because obesity in animals has been linked to many other health problems like cardiorespiratory disease, orthopedic disease, urinary disorders and more, addressing weight issues is paramount.
