Keep your dog fit and healthy guide

Keep your dog fit and healthy guide

Weighing scales manufacturer Marsden has launched a free downloadable guide to help pet owners combat animal obesity.

According to the 2014 PDSA Animal Welfare report, one in three dogs in the UK are currently overweight.

The guide, titled ‘Keep Your Dog Fit & Healthy’, includes diet tips, causes of obesity and the negative effects obesity can have on a pet. It can be downloaded from Marsden’s website.

Marsden Managing Director, Richard Black, said: “The PDSA has described obesity as ‘the number one issue facing vets’ - and research by Marsden has found that 58% of pets could be overweight.

“Obesity in pets can lead to diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, cancer and reduced life expectancy. We can all do more to protect the welfare of our animals, and the free guide can help.”

Marketing Manager, David Smith, added: “As a leading veterinary equipment supplier, our relationship with vets has meant we have been able to witness the pet obesity epidemic first hand - and we have been taken aback by what we have found.

“Every vet we have spoken to for the guide has recommended weighing out pet food before every meal to reduce calorie intake. It is also important to speak to your vet if you are concerned about their weight.”

The free guide can be downloaded from:
