Your Dog is Too Fat (There, I’ve said it!)

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (12-19-2022) #810C: Dr. Ernie Ward created the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP) to help owners and the pet food industry take an honest look at whether our dogs and cats are fat (they are!) — and why it urgently matters from a health and longevity perspective. Tracie asks everyone to answer the short list of questions in the Association’s survey by December 31st so the APOP can let pet food companies know what you want in your pet’s food.
