As we draw nearer to Christmas, and the nights are long and dark, we tend to fill our homes with tasty treats. It’s important to remember that sneaking our pets little bits of ‘human food’ can be the equivalent of you or I eating seven hamburgers in a row!
Animals’ stomachs are designed very differently to our own and sharing our sweet treats and leftovers with them can lead to them becoming morbidly obese, very quickly.
If an animal is overweight, they can develop serious illnesses, and it puts added pressure onto their joints, limiting their mobility and potentially making exercise very difficult.
