Overfeeding is one of the main causes of this.
The study of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (Colmevet) revealed a worrying fact: 33% of dogs in Chile are overweight or obese.
This is mainly due to the sedentary lifestyle, pet owners have less time to take them for a walk and live in smaller spaces. Bad
This number is relevant if we think that obesity in dogs causes problems similar to those that humans can present, for example diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, pancreatitis, joint pain, among others.
"Animals should go out at least 20 minutes every day.not walking, but running or exercising ", said Franco González, member of the responsible holding company of Colmevet Subway
"Going down to urinate for 15 minutes is not worth it, we need a more aerobic exercise," he added. To keep a lot in mind.
But that's not all, because another important point to consider is the food. According to a Mars Petcare survey around the world, at least 25% of people overfeed their petsIn addition, 54% serve food every time they order and 50% fill their plate with as much food as possible. I hope I do not follow these steps and change the habits of your pets soon.
