In support of National Pet Obesity Awareness Day, we created an infographic with some thought-provoking facts and figures on the pet obesity problem in the US. We plan to create a second infographic this month highlighting reader tips & advice for keeping their pets fit as well as featuring some inspiring before/after success stories.
In the meantime, please help us address the pet obesity problem and SHARE this infographic with your friends & fellow dog lovers – especially those that may have a pet that is overweight. This is such a costly, yet solvable problem!
