Obesity a common problem with both dogs and cats as most will over eat given the chance! Cats especially tend to lead a very luxurious and sedentary life (no longer having to hunt for their food!) Although it is often associated with older animals, the problem can start much younger. If not addressed, overweight animals can suffer from problems such as arthritis, diabetes, heart, liver and respiratory problems. These animals often have a shortened life span, more health problems, less energy and a poorer quality of life than their slimmer friends.
