We all want our pets to be happy, healthy, and live long lives as our beloved companions. When they become overweight or obese, their chances of living this kind of life are diminished. According to the Pet Obesity Prevention Association, more than half the dogs and cats in the United States are considered overweight or obese. I don't know about you, but I was blown away by that number. My Saffy has struggled with her weight on and off throughout her 15 years. With the help of her vet and a change in diet and exercise habits, she finally leveled off at a healthy size. And we discovered she likes to walk outside on a leash and harness! In fact, she now believes she's the wild huntress of the neighborhood, and all chipmunks cower in fear of her majestic ways. We let her go ahead and believe that. It's a small thing.
