Research shows that being obese can shorten a pet’s life by up to 10%. For a labrador, that would be two years!
It’s important to know your pet’s ideal weight and their actual weight. Our team can tell you the ideal weight for the breed and if you bring the dog in to store, we can even help you weigh it on our pet scales. Once you know whether your pet needs to lose weight, we have lots of ideas that can help to get it trim, taught and terrific again. Take a look at our ‘Weight Matters’ fact sheet to find out more about the issues of excess weight in pets.
