The researchers studied adult dogs recruited animal clinics across Zealand and Denmark’s capital region. Of those pets recruited, 20 percent were either heavy or obese. The dogs were at least two years old, rather than suffering from chronic ailments.
Additionally, the analysis finds that 29% of those male dogs from the research were heavy/obese versus only 10% of the intact men that are reproductively.
A study from the University of Copenhagen reports that the incidence of dogs that are overweight is bigger among owners than among regular weight owners. Part of the explanation lies in whether treats can be used as snacks or training tools. It’s the first research on obesity in Denmark.
