Obesity is a nutritional disease which is defined by an excess of body fat. Dogs that are over nourished, lack the ability to exercise, or that have a tendency to retain weight are the most at risk for becoming obese. Obesity can result in serious adverse health effects, such as reducing lifespan, even if your dog is only moderately obese. Multiple areas of the body are affected by excess body fat, including the bones and joints, the digestive organs, heart and respiratory systems. Exercise and diet play the key role in weight loss but so does the hormonal/metabolic, and liver functions. We recommend the following products to help support your pet during the weight loss process especially the adrenal support supplement which plays a key role in sugar metabolism.
