Chubby dogs are cute. But keeping your dog at a healthy weight is critical.
An overweight dog can experience serious health problems such as arthritis, diabetes, pulmonary troubles, high blood pressure, and cardiac issues.
Pet owners need to make sure their dogs get enough exercise and don’t overeat.
The easiest way to determine if your pet is getting a bit too plump is to do The Rib Test.
Run your hands along their sides. If you can’t feel your dog’s ribs, it’s time to make a few changes to their diet and activities.
