"An annual survey conducted by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention has revealed that 88.4 million pets are overweight or obese."

we're all shocked that the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention would get these results.

It would be nice to see statistics based on the patient visits to veterinary offices. every vet office we ever had dog visit, the weight was the very first thing recorded after we got past name & address.

oldfarthenry: (Are there doggie gyms?)

They are called "parks".

We once had a chocolate lab get up around 160.  He was a big boy though, even after we dieted him down he was over 130.  His chest has the broadest I have ever seen on a lab.  His litermates were big (all up around 100), but he was the biggest.  And of course he was the runt of the liter.  He also lived the longest.  Great dog, dumb as bricks though.

can't say i'm shocked by this... most pet food consists of the same refined corn and corn chemical products that is put in the average american diet as well...

but that's ok, there's no correlation there... so just keep on subsidizing the corn industry and keep letting Big Food make "food" from pharmaceutical grade compounds instead of foods in its natural state

/Nestle (the largest food corporation in the world) owns Purina and practices the same manufacturing of Purina products that it does for it's other "food"
