Is your dog under or over weight, or aren’t you sure? We are here to help!
Ensuring your dog is the correct weight is essential for overall health of your dog and also carries many health benefits.
This is why we decided to open our very own Dog Weight Clinic for our customers. We have listed the key reasons your dogs weight is important below.
Naturally a heavier body will mean that there is more pressure on joints. If your dog is overweight, with can cause excess pressure on joints, that could lead into issues later in life such as arthritis.
The heart is the key to health it is responsible for pumping blood around your dogs body. If your dog is overnight, the heart will have to work harder to keep blood flowing and carry the oxygen your dog needs.
By ensuring your dog is at a healthy weight, you can actually help them live longer! If they are overweight, there will be more pressure on the heart and other vital organs that can lead to a shorter life.
