Pets Facing Obesity Too

Obesity and overweight are the issues that are not only concerning the human lives but animals too are suffering from the same majorly. In order to save the animal's health from such illnesses, a charity has recently organized a weight-loss contest especially for the obese pets, to help charity explain to people that overfeeding pets is not caring of the pet but severely affects its health.

The above contest for pets has been organized by animal charity PDSA, Pet Fit Club, which is featuring total 11 dogs, five cats and two rabbits, all the participants weighing more than 24 stone, the equivalent of 380 tins of dog food.

The event will educate the pet owners about the sufficient food levels for their pet, how much they should be fed and what eating habits they must be taught to live their lives healthily and in perfect shapes too.

One of the contestants of the PDSA's 2012 slimming competition is Pet rabbit Samantha, which is competing hard with its contestant rabbit to reach the final.

The organizers of the event have also facilitated the show with specialist vets, who will be educating pet owners upon the balanced diet chart and exercising routine plan to help them feed their pets with adequate food quantities thereby making their six-month battle against the bulge easier.

Fifi is another participant in the competition. The cat is from Bradford and weighs more than twice her ideal body weight at 9.3kg.

PDSA data reveals that majority of pets in UK are facing the overweight problems. Approx 2.9 million dogs and three million cats in the UK are today overweight. Thus it becomes very important for the pet owners as well as the pet agencies to make sure that they do not overfeed the pet.
