Pets don’t usually get much choice regarding their way of life and what they repeatedly put into their bodies. That responsibility lies with their owners; this is why it is so disheartening to hear of the two most prevalent problems in pet health are mostly owner-related.
Today, we wanted to talk about—you guessed it—the two biggest pet health problems that have been striking pets all over the world. It’s really odd how there could be so many people who have pets which end up having the same problems. The only common factor would be their owners. It is a rather difficult trend and we want it to stop and we believe that sharing information about it is the way to go.
Here are the two most prevalent pet health problems to date:
There has been a startling trend of household pets that have been several kilograms over the healthy prescribed weight limit. There have been entire TV shows that centered on obese animals. What every episode seems to have in common is the fact that the owners of the pets seemingly are unaware of the right amount of food that is needed by their charges.
What happens is that a lot of pet owners give 2-4 times the food amount that is needed for them to be sufficiently fed. The end result is that the pets end up obscenely obese.
Many people think that just because a pet is rather chunky (read that as obese) that they are getting all the nutrition that they need. The truth of the matter is that alongside obesity is pet malnutrition. There are a lot of house pets which are given mostly fatty and unhealthy food.
So while they bulk up, their bodies do not actually get the nutrition that they sorely need. Pet malnutrition is the gateway to many other diseases like organ failure. Cats may be picky with their food but this does not mean that you should overload them with the food that they do actually like.
So there you have it! We at Pet Centre of Sparta care quite deeply about the state of health of many loyal and loving pets all over the world. We would love to hear your thoughts on the matter of pet health issues. What else do you think are the most prevalent issues in terms of health?
