Dog Obesity

For optimal health, dogs should maintain their weight within a narrow range. This range differs from one breed to another, but when any dog gains too much weight, its health will begin to suffer.  For one thing, there's additional wear and tear on the joints, sometimes leading to arthritis or worse.

Carrying the extra weight also puts strain on the heart muscle. Eventually, this strain can lead to congestive heart failure.
