|Nessie, starting weight 17.2 lbs|
The wonderful folks at Purina are determined to create a healthier world for our pets. Often, we feed our pets without even thinking about it too much. Are we measuring the amount of food they get? Do we let them graze how they please throughout the day? How about treats? Are we really keeping track and limiting intake? Would we feed our children this way?
It's a lot to think about. Here are some of the facts from Project: Pet Slim Down™:
-58% of cats in the United States are overweight or obese (that's you, Ness)
-An extra 3lbs on a Boston Terrier is equivolent to an extra 30lbs on an 150lb adult human.
Yikes! Luckily, the Project: Pet Slim Down™ is a proven way for pets to eat healthier, get active and lose some weight! I was amazed to read some of the success stories, like the one about Jodi, a bullmastiff that lost 16% of her body fat in just 12 weeks.
