Help Eliminate Pet Obesity with Tidy Dog
May 11, 2020
It’s no secret that obesity in pets is on the rise, and 2018 research shows that almost 56% of canines are classified as overweight or obese. Similar to humans, obesity can affect your dog in a multitude of ways, including chronic inflammation, kidney dysfunction, respiratory disorders, cancer, diabetes, skin disorders, orthopedic disease and a reduced life expectancy.
Our furry friends are already with us for such a short time, so it is important for all pet owners to be responsible in monitoring their pet’s diet in a responsible manner. Fortunately, Tidy Dog can help! Our bowls are designed to help you adequately measure the best portion for your pet. The Department of Small Animal Clinical Services at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine at Knoxville, TN, shows that portion control and regular exercise can help beat pet obesity by ensuring that your pet receives the proper portion every time.
All of our TROFF bowls include etched measurement indicators to help manage those proper portions, no matter the size of the scoop you use for your pet’s food. This helps you to make sure your pet stays happy, healthy and satisfied for a long time to come.
It is important to discuss your pet’s diet with your veterinarian to determine the correct portions and nutrients for your pet.
