My pet is over weight. How many calories do they need to get back to ideal weight?


Helping our pets lose weight can be a challenge, but getting them back to their ideal weight can add years to their life and can contribute to a more enjoyable life for them.  If your dog is overweight by as few as five pounds, they can be put at risk for developing serious medical issues and concerns and can shorten their lives. Cats can develop issues if they're as little as two pounds above their ideal weight.

The first step for any weight loss plan is to have your pet examined by your veterinarian who can make a recommendation about the number of calories, and the activity level that will help them get back into prime shape.
