Health means something different for each animal. The more you know about your dog’s health and nutritional needs, the better you will take care of him.
The correct body weight is determined not only on the basis of the result obtained when weighing the animal
Weighing your dog is not the only way to check that he or she is overweight. You can find out if your dog is in healthy weight by asking your veterinarian how to use the body assessment chart.
Talk to your veterinarian
If you have any concerns or questions about your dog’s weight or shape, it’s best to speak to your veterinarian. The veterinarian will help determine whether the dog is actually overweight and what measures should be taken to make the animal lose unnecessary kilograms and how to prevent obesity.
Activity affects health
Physical activity helps to provide the animal with the appropriate stimuli and helps to maintain an optimal body weight. The activity level should take into account the age, weight and breed of the animal.
How much exercise does my dog need?
Whether your dog is a puppy or an adult dog, it’s important to determine how much exercise he needs each day. Nobody knows your pet better than you do, but if you’re wondering if your dog is getting the right amount of exercise, there are a few things to consider.
Optimal daily doses may be smaller than you think
Many owners feel that their dog needs more food than its actual needs. This means many dogs are overfed, which can cause weight gain and lead to other health problems.
What is the correct meal size for my dog?
The condition for maintaining optimal body weight is to maintain a balance between the amount of energy consumed and expended. Remember that your dog’s daily food intake may differ from that of other dogs, even if they are of the same breed.
Proper development lasts a lifetime
Weight loss therapy is much more difficult than obesity prevention. That is why it is so important to follow proper eating habits and behavior from the very beginning.
How much exercise does a puppy need each day?
It is difficult to give a precise answer when it comes to precise guidance on the amount of exercise recommended for puppies. It should always be remembered that the activity level should be determined individually for each puppy.
