Obesity in Dogs
Obesity is recognized as the most important medical disease in pets worldwide with a prevalence of 40-60 %. It not only increases disease risk, it reduces quality of life and shortens life expectancy. In this webinar, we will discuss different weight loss regimens (include examples) and life style adaptations (like treats), ways to improve owner compliance and pitfalls to avoid.
