Dogs and human share a lot in common. Maybe that is why we consider dogs to be a man’s best friend. One of the commonalties both human and dogs share is the fact that when we get overweight or obese, we are more prone to health problems like heart diseases, diabetes or having strokes and a lot more. Considering our modern world, where almost all of us are busy and don’t have much time to eat healthy food, which takes time and effort to prepare, we usually opt to go for fast foods, which are very unhealthy. Also our modern lifestyle is very unhealthy.
We don’t get much exercise in our work or school since we are sitting most of the time and are facing our computers or teachers. We also usually sleep late to finish whatever needs to be done today and wake up early to prepare for the day’s activities, which means we don’t get the exact number of hours of sleep that our body needs to remain healthy. This kind of lifestyle is very unhealthy and is very likely to lead us to obesity. And if we cannot take good care of our health, how much more our pet’s health? That is why it is very important to always check on our weight and our health. But not only ours, we should also check on our pet’s weight and health.
One of Ayrshire vet, a county found in south-west Scotland, called the Ivybank vet, offers a Waist Watchers Club program run by one of their professional nurses to help you determine whether your pet dog’s weight is still normal or not. According to their website, a dog’s normal weight is around 20 kilograms, add 4 more kilograms to that weight and your dog might be considered obese and will be more prone to diseases. That is why it is very important for us to be vigilant to our weight and health. For us to remain healthy, we and our pets should have regular exercise and proper diet. Maybe we can walk with our pets a few kilometers everyday as part of our regular exercise. We should also have a balanced meal diet every day.
We should not take in too many sweets and instead, we should eat a lot of vegetables and fruits. Our pet dogs should also eat healthy and to know what kinds of food are healthy for your dog, you should ask someone expert in that field which is usually a vet and the vets and nurses in Ivybank vet will be very much willing to help you with that.
As what the saying goes, health is wealth that is why we should always take good care of our health and one way to check this is through measuring your weight. So what are you waiting for?
