  • Causes of Obesity in Pets

    Your veterinarian in San Jose will tell you that just like proper veterinary care , weight management is essential for keeping your pet healthy. Bear in mind that some dog breeds are predisposed to obesity due to a variety of factors including slow metabolism and affinity for overeating.

    A common reason for obesity in pets is overfeeding. It’s essential to ask your veterinary technician how much you should be feeding your pet instead of relying on the package’s feeding instructions, as these are often inaccurate. Some owners “free feed” their pets, keeping their bowl filled with food throughout the day, or have a habit of feeding their pet too many treats, both of which are likely to cause excess weight gain.
