Why is it important to control the weight of our pets?

Excessive weight often comes with heart and joints problems.

How can we act against obesity?

The most important is to give them just pet food. Pet foods include all the components that are necessary for them, fat, proteins etc. Although the quantity might look little we should keep in mind that the pet food is highly concentrated.

The quantify defined by the manufacturer is just indicative and we should always monitor the weight of our pets and adjust the it appropriately. The pets, just like people, are different in the way the consume calories.
