Overweight Dogs & Simple Solutions

25th August, 2017
It’s hard not to give our best buds a treat when they use ‘puppy eyes’ on us. That moment of excited tail wagging when we hand them a treat can feel like pure joy for us. But we also want them to be healthy. Unfortunately, less than half of all pet owners actually believe their vets when told their doggy needs a diet. Health Problems Associated with Overweight Dogs Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best things we can do for ourselves and for our pups. It helps humans and canines maintain low chances of developing many weight related problems. Plus, we extend the lives of our furry companions. Here are just a few examples: Decreased life expectancy by 2.5 years Liver dysfunction Diabetes Many types of cancer Heart and respiratory disease Ostearthitis Heat intolerance Orthopedic issues High blood pressure Skin problems Kidney disease Seizures What to do for Overweight Dogs Whether we end up with a pudgy pug, a bully bulldog, or a hefty newfie, there’s plenty we can do to help bring them back to the healthy side of the scale. The number of overweight dogs has grown by 158% over the past decade. Keeping a healthy fur-family is our duty and can be a ‘ton’ of fun.   Reign in the endless treats. We don’t need to stop the treats, but let’s put a daily limit in them.   Low calorie treats. When we do give treats, they don’t need to be empty calories, but let’s keep them low-calorie.   Reduce ‘training with treats.’ Many dogs are motivated by food, so it’s common practice to train with treats as rewards. But using praise or a toy can also be effective.   Limit and eliminate people food snacks. There are plenty of ‘people foods’ that are healthy for dogs, but those table scraps just aren’t doing our canine companions any favors. Limit or eliminate them.   EcoEats is healthy dog food for all dogs. We never want to just cut calories, but we can certainly choose the right kinds of calories. EcoEats is free from fillers. It’s packed with delicious, healthy calories that satisfy always hungry pups.   Exercise for all. People and dogs should exercise together. Part of losing weight is keeping both, the body and the mind, engaged. Playing games and being together will bring us all closer together and develop a healthy lifestyle, rather than a playing the weight loss numbers game.   Remember to take it easy. Just like humans, dogs can get sore and need to ease into a lifestyle of activity. Start with slow walks, swimming, and playing easy sprinting games, like fetch All of these can be achieved to keep our pups healthy and happy. EcoEats is the only resource that may not already be in the in our hands and that’s available right HERE for an affordable price and a 100% money-back guarantee.             Overweight Dogs & Simple Solutions обновлено: August 29, 2017 автором: […]

Thank you for the peace of mind that my dog is not in discomfort anymore, thank you for this product being organic and good for our dog's ears, and seriously thank you for giving us an option to help our old pup with a product we can afford.
Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!*
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.
Bonnie Schweitzer
This stuff really works--after spending money at the vet @ $25 a bottle, it's saving me a lot of money.
