Obesity Epidemic Worsening U.S. Pets

A recent survey by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP) found that 53% of dogs and 55% of cats in the U.S. are overweight or obese. In many of these dogs or cats, owners are unaware of their pet's weight problem, a phenomenon dubbed the "fat pet gap" by veterinarian Ernie Ward, APOP's founder.

The study finds that more pets are becoming obese and the already overweight pets are still gaining weight.
