Our favourite fury friend expert Dr Innis from Kingsway Veterinary Clinic joins us each fortnight to chat about our animal family members. Today we’re talking (dun dun dun music plays) .. your fat pet.

How do we know if our pets are overweight? Dr Innis says we’re so used to seeing overweight animals, that when we see a pet of good weight we often think they’re too skinny. In fact 2 0f 3 pets Dr Innis treats are obese! There is a simple trick to tell if your pet is overweight. Rub your hands down their sides, you should be able to feel the bump of each rib. Then, run your hand down their back. You should be able to feel the ridge of each spine bone. How does your pet pal feel?

Dr Innis covers everything you need to know about basic nutrition, times to feed and what to do if your pet is over weight. Listen below!
