The dangers of obesity in dogs & cats and what you can do to prevent it

Did you know that over half of all pets in the nation are obese or overweight? It's a growing epidemic that needs our attention. Let's work together to provide our beloved pets with the care and attention they deserve, ensuring they lead happy, healthy lives. With the PortionPro Rx automatic cat & dog feeder, you can find a solution to prevent or reverse pet obesity. 

Statistics reveal alarming figures, with up to 63% of pet cats and 59% of pet dogs estimated to be overweight or obese across the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

Pet obesity remains a critical concern impacting pets globally, with escalating numbers of overweight dogs and cats leading to a significant risk of various health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, respiratory distress, arthritis, high blood pressure, and cancer. Addressing this challenge requires concerted efforts from veterinarians, pet parents, and the community at large.

The implications of pet obesity are profound, affecting not only the physical health of our pets but also diminishing the quality and longevity of their lives and the bond between pet and parent.

Many pet parents unknowingly overfeed their furry companions, driven by emotion or a lack of understanding regarding appropriate portion sizes. Weight gain often occurs gradually, making it challenging to intervene effectively. This challenge is further compounded in households with multiple pets, where managing individual diets becomes a complex endeavor.

Finding practical solutions to ensure each pet receives their allotted amount of food without overindulgence poses a significant challenge. However, addressing this issue is essential to safeguarding the health and well-being of our pets.
