If a pet is overweight and reluctant to exercise, it is often a continuous battle to stop weight gain. Taking your dog for a walk or having playtime with your cat is great exercise. Cat play toys, that they can chase, will provide some aerobic exercise to help burn calories. Helping the overweight pet is not just about more exercise, it is about reducing the calories that the pet consumes each day. For dogs and cats, there are wonderful, low-calorie, dry, and canned foods available to help your pet lose weight. With weight loss, your pet will have more energy and enjoy their walks or playtime at the park.
