So, why is your dog overweight?
Diet and exercise:
If your dog has gained weight, it’s likely they are eating too much or moving too little. ‘Eat less, move more’ – this simple formula really does work.
Medical conditions that cause weight gain in dogs include hypothyroidism and Cushing’s disease. These conditions often also cause symptoms such as coat changes, low energy and increased thirst, contact your vet for an appointment if you are concerned. It’s important to note that these conditions are a much rarer cause of weight gain than an exercise and diet imbalance.
