Did you know that over half of the pet population is overweight? What’s even worse is that the rate of overweight animals has risen by almost 40% in just the last 5 years for dogs and 90% for cats! But how can an owner help their overweight cats and overweight dogs lose weight?

Many pet owners have no idea that their pets are even overweight. I admit, I love giving my animals treats. We have dogs and cats, but the dogs are my babies and I love showing them how much I adore them. But, we as pet owners, can sometimes show out pets a little too much love.

Help For Overweight Dogs and Cats

I know that we want the best for our animals, so when our fur babies turn into overweight dogs and cats, we need to do what we can to help them become the active and vital pets they were meant to be. Just like with humans, sometimes that requires a little help from experts to live long, happy, healthy lives.

    2. Hi my name is Kim, i am the MomKat of two gorgeous fur babies. My maine coon, Kitty Boo, is 7.5 years old and weighs 12 lbs and my tuxedo cat, Socks, is also 7 and weighs about 12 lbs. My vet has told me they need to lose weight and they are feeling heavier…i’ve noticed their appetite has increased lately, I don’t want them to get fatter, i actually want them to lose weight. I’m going to have to try this type of Science Diet. I already feed them SD’s Ideal Balance but I had not heard of this type. I really need to cut back on their treats and/or try these instead. Thank you for this great giveaway oppty!

    7. Linda Szymoniak says

      My dog, Kyoko (one of five rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds) is 4-5 years old. Kyoko was nearly starved to death before I adopted her from a high-kill shelter. Even though she is no longer starving, and is healthy in every other way, she wants to eat constantly. She should weigh about 60 pounds, but was up to 79 before I started trying to get her to lsoe some weight. I got her down to 75, but we could really use help getting her down to the weight she should be at.

      I have a dog – he is 4 years old – he weights 105# – his name is Harley

    11. I dogs name is Rocky and he is about to turn 8 years old. He has been overweight for half of his like by about 8 pounds. He’s a small size dog and only supposed to weigh around 20, but he is getting close to reaching 30. This is definitely something I would use to help my dog!

    12. My Name is Rhonda Martin and my email address is exotic1(at)tdstelme(dot)net. I have a Cairn Terrier and her name it Toto because she is looks just like the dog that stared in the Wizard of Oz. We don’t know how old she is because she came to us abandoned. We had no information not even her name. We think with help from our vet that she is about 5yrs old. She is very spoiled and has become over weight. She currently weights 18pds which isn’t to bad I didn’t think but for her size the vet says yes. He said she should weigh only between 13-15pds. Getting her to loose weight is so difficult because she doesn’t like the dog food that I have bought for weight control. I have spent a small fortune trying to find one she will eat. Maybe she will like Hill’s Science Diet.

    24. Cindy Merrill says

      I have two cats, ( Long fur) Fred and Ginger, both are age 9, siblings. Fred is at least 20 pounds, Ginger weighs 7 or 8 pounds. Fred is overweight, for certain.

    25. We have three cat’s, all adopted, Ibenez is the oldest at 17. Then there is Buddy he is 5 years old, and last there is Ozzy a black cat that is 3 years old. He is the one that really likes to eat a lot. I have to have them on timed eating schedule because I just cannot leave food in their bowls all the time. Ozzy will eat everyone’s food. I think that he would benefit the most from this program. All three of them already eat the Science Diet Lite Cat Food. Have been eating that for years now.

    35. Jeron McDonald says

      Hi, my name is Jeron.

      I have a cat, Cleo who has gained a lot of weight since I went off to college. I’m back now, and this would be an awesome way to start her back off on the healthy path! I’m not sure how much she weighs, maybe 5-6 lbs, but her stomach is getting rather large and she’s about 3 years old

    36. curiouskit10 says

      My pet is a cat, Oppie. He’s almost 7 years old, and he weighs 14.8 pounds as of his last vet visit. This is not hugely overweight for him, and he’s half Maine Coon, but he is a little chubby and will become more so as he ages if we don’t curb it now.

    54. Sarah Oswald says

      My dog Zoey is 10 years old and not so active. I think she is over weight because she looks like she is. I think its because she not only eats her food but she sneaks and eats the cats food. I think she was about 60 pounds when last weighed .
