Keep Your Pets In Shape

Wendy Diamond Gives Us the Lowdown on Overweight Pets

We all know that a healthy diet and lots of exercise is the key to good health. And as you may expect, the same goes for our pets! One of the judges from Greatest American Dog, Wendy Diamond, recently made an appearance on the Today Show and explained how to tell if our pets are overweight. Apparently, it's all in the ribs!

If you can't feel your pet's ribs, she says he might be a bit too pudgy and just like humans, be at risk for type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and even respiratory issues. Making sure your pets get the right amounts of good, quality food, and plenty of playtime is the prescription to keeping your four legged pals happy and healthy! How do you keep your pets in shape?
