Many dog owners are unaware that, according to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, close to half the dogs in the USA are considered overweight and 6.7 million of those dogs are designated as clinically obese. And research has shown that overweight dogs can often die up to two years earlier than normal because of that excess weight. Some of the most common risk factors include osteoarthritis and poor joint health, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, cranial cruciate ligament injury, heart and respiratory disease, kidney disease, and cancer. And most of these dogs dying early deaths are not doing so because of deliberate neglect or lack of care, but simply because most dog owners simply do not know the important facts of proper dog care and treatment. Those who learn all the critical information about proper dog care and apply it when taking care of their dog, often get extra years with their loving pet. This includes understanding food, diet, parasites, medical treatment, grooming, and many other necessary tasks in owning and loving a pet dog.
