Keep Your Precious Pet a Healthy Weight

It's a known fact that pets are healthier and live longer when they maintain a healthy weight. Since many pets need to shed the extra pounds, Marietta Vet Clinic and +Julian Peckich DVM, veterinarian offer a suggestion.

Dogs and cats alike look forward to snacks and meal time, so it's difficult to change the amount of times a day they expect to eat. The answer is to gradually reduce the portions they receive. Cut snacks in half, but continue the ritual at the same time. If portions are lessened slowly, your pet will be none the wiser.

Getting your pet a healthy weight can be achieved with a little forethought and effort.
