Your vet has probably already discussed with you how easy it is for even the most diligently cared-for pet to put on weight. As well as the obvious potential causes - eating too much, excessive snacking or exercising too little - there can be other contributing factors:

  • As pets age, they become less active and therefore need fewer calories
  • Some breeds are more predisposed to weight gain than others, including
    Labrador retrievers, cocker spaniels and mixed breed cats
  • The process of neutering or spaying alters the metabolism of pets, 
    making them prone to weight gain
  • Occasionally weight gain is associated with specific medical 
    conditions that require particular treatment

Other signs to watch for:

  • Collar needs loosening
  • Slow movement
  • Difficulty in walking
  • Shortness of breath
  • Mood swings
  • Sleeps more than usual
