Professor Alex German, from the University’s Small Animal Teaching Hospital, calls obesity the single greatest threat to your dog’s health and most pet owners don’t even realise their pet is overweight.
According to Professor German it is not just the average pet owner who faces this challenge. His analysis of dogs at Crufts, the biggest dog show in the UK, found that about a quarter of all show dogs were overweight.
The rise in dog obesity parallels the rise in obesity in humans and obese dogs face many of the same health risks as obese humans including arthritis and diabetes.
