Keeping Your Dog Healthy

Every time people see December they comment on how small / fit she is, and then promptly tell me about how they know a dachshund who is overweight. Which is when I quickly tell them how I also knew two dachshunds whenever I was growing up who were overweight and how I got to watch first hand just how a dogs weight can really affect their quality of life. Both of those dogs were fairly overweight because their owners fed them human scraps in addition to the dog food, one of the two dogs was so bad off that he had breathing problems because of it (talk about heartbreaking!).

Which is why I trust Decembers health exclusively to Purina Dog Chow Light & Healthy, period.

As far as I see it December is part of the family, and her health is just as important as ours, so why trust it with anyone else.

Don’t take my word for it, check out some of the results from this recent survey:

 

  • While 85% of dog owners surveyed believe they have an understanding of the nutritional guidelines that should be followed for themselves, 76% of dog owners surveyed believe they have an understanding of the nutritional guidelines that should be followed for their dog.
  • 22% of dog owners surveyed believe their dog is overweight. This is in stark contrast to the reality that 53% of US dogs are actually overweight (as reported by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention).
  • Of dog owners surveyed who believe their dog is overweight, 24% don’t know how they should manage their dog’s weight.
  • According to 36% of dog owners surveyed, ‘fed my dog smaller portions of the same dog food’ is the first action they took to manage their dog’s weight.
  • 16% of dog owners surveyed who feed their dog a low calorie diet believe their dog does not enjoy its low calorie food.

(That last one is massively wrong because I know that December loves Purina Dog Chow Light & Healthy, especially the real chunks of chicken!)
