How to avoid that your pet gains weight? Eurovet surgery helps you to keep your dog healthy, thanks to advises regarding nutrition and physical activity.

First of all, avoid giving to your pet sweets and food containing too much fat. Even if it is just a candy, it can have terrific consequences on its health. You don’t imagine how a single piece of cheese can be noxious.

Furthermore, try to give to your pet an alimentation adapted to its needs.

It is far better to use Premium products, like Hill’s dried products, which are produced according to scientific investigations and are also healthy for the mouth of your pet. Don’t give it chocolate, which is toxic, cheese or, generally speaking, human food. As soon as possible, stop it if you already feeding your pet in this way.

Finally, remind that a pet has different needs, regarding its age, weight, size and breed. Don’t hesitate to go to your surgery to ask for further information, and try, if you really love it, to adopt these healthy measures.

And bring your pet outside so that it can run and enjoy. Put it to sport.

How to know if your pet needs a diet ?

Obesity affects more and more dogs. It drastically decreases their life expectancy. A pet is considered as obese when it exceeds of 20 % its ideal weight.

You need to determine its physical condition, regarding its age and breed. You can even go to a clinic o a surgery and weigh it to know how to act. On a specific balance, place it with and without you, as a consequence you will know what is the exact weight of your pet.

Then and thanks to your vet, determine what are the needs of your pet, and start if necessary a diet.

How to make it lose weight ?

By practising more and more, but not too much, and watching what it eats. Avoid human food as we already said, and split the daily food ration in three meals. When it will have found its ideal weight, keep on following these advises, and start another diet, by giving it a low-fat nutrition, under the recommendation of your vet.

Don't forget that obesity can cause plenty of risks for its health as cardiovascular affections, diseases of skin, degenerative osteoarthritis, diabetes, reduction of the fertility and cancers...

Eurovet thanks you and wishes you success in your future attempts.
