Obesity in Animals

Obesity has increased in the last few decades, both in humans and in several animal populations. Obesity in animals starts when the weight of animal body becomes 20% greater than its optimal body weight. It is associated with hormonal and metabolic changes in the animal body. Approximately one in three veterinary patients is considered to be overweight and obese. When obese animals are compared to non-obese animals, they have a higher chance of osteoarthritis and diabetes mellitus, which also occur earlier in the life of the animal.
