How to Tell if Your Dog is the Right Weight

We read an interesting article recently that stated that obesity is the number 1 problem in dogs. It causes all sorts of health issues.

As with humans, the incidence of obesity in dogs has skyrocketed over the last decade. “Junk” foods, overfeeding and lack of exercise are the main causes.

On our website we have a Body Condition Score Assessment which you can use to check that your dog is at its ideal weight. We also have a Feed Calculator where you can easily see how much you should be feeding.

You can check it out here:

The article also made another interesting comment: if you want a vet to check your dog’s weight – make sure the vet himself is thin and fit! “Out-of-shape vets might also tend to overlook fatness in their patients, and they will almost certainly minimize the importance of exercise for overall health.”

With no fillers, by-products or artificial ingredients, Pro Pac is the ideal food to maintain your dog’s weight and overall health. You also need to feed less as the nutrition is so concentrated.

We look forward to hearing from you when you need some more (and remember we have cat food as well). You can order directly online at www.petfooddirect.co.nz or call us on 0800 364 366.
