Is My Pet Overweight? (Part 13 of 13)

Round Hound?  Curvy Kitty?  Click here for tips on peeling off the pounds! (Continued)

Beware the New Normal

Because so many companion animals are overweight, pet parents have become desensitized to the sight of extra pounds.  Many of my clients are surprised to learn that their pet is overweight.  Similarly, owners of lean, perfectly conditioned pets will often ask me if their pet is too skinny.  The widespread nature of this problem is causing society’s paradigm to shift.  Overweight is the new normal, and healthy is the new anorexic. Please do not hesitate to bring in your pet to check her weight and body condition.  We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
