5 Guidelines to Prevent Pet Obesity

Prevention is key, and this is the first step to preventing obesity in your pet. Some suggestions include strictly feeding a raw meat-based diet and avoiding foods with additives, preservatives and food coloring. It’s important to maintain a proper balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates that are specifically blended for a healthy canine diet. This ensures that your dog is not deprived of the natural source of enzymes that are beneficial for healthy digestion.

Secondly, feed your pet regularly and at specific times each day. This helps prevent overfeeding and keeps your pet satiated throughout the day. Eliminate free-feeding your pet. By allowing food to sit in their bowl all day long, they will have a tendency to eat even when not hungry. This also could create issues with training. Your pet may be accustomed to eating at all times of the day rather than meal time.

Thirdly, do keep treats to a minimum because this additional calorie load can add to the problem. The following are suggestions of treat and other food items that should be completely eliminated from your pet’s diet:
