Why is Obesity so Dangerous for Pets?

The following article is taken from the “Purina® Animal Instincts” Podcast Series. Learn more at www.purina.com.

Fat cats and dogs are also prone to injury, more at risk in surgery, and predisposed to conditions such as diabetes. And the laundry list of problems doesn’t end there. Decreased stamina, diminished immune function, and digestive disorders are all potential consequences of obesity.
