Did you know that more than 50% of pets in the US are overweight? That means that more than half the pet population is not only overweight, but at greater risk for cancer, diabetes, and joint and tendon problems. As a pet parent, that cuteness turns terrifying really quick! If you’re like me, and I know you are, you want your pets to live as long and healthy of a life as possible!

Overweight Pets and the 10 Week Turnaround
Overweight pets are going to need help getting the weight off. They don’t realize that being chunky is terrible for them, so it’s up to us pet parents to help them get the weight off.
The Hill’s 10 Week Turnaround is a 10 week program designed to help owners get their overweight pets back to their healthy weight. The calendar is an easy way to track what and when you feed your pet, as well as monitor pet weight loss.
I posted some pet weight loss tips in a previous article on how to help get overweight pets back into shape, but I’ll give another brief overview.
- Consistency: Set a food schedule and stick to it so your pet doesn’t ask for food constantly.
- Measure: Always measure out the exact amount of food for your pet.
- Feeding Guidelines: Start your overweight pets out on the recommended amount of food on the bag, and adjust the amount according to your pets’ needs.
- It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint: Remember, it took your overweight pets a long time to get where they are. It will take them a long time to get back to an ideal weight.
