Obesity is a growing concern that is feared amongst pet owners and pet professionals.

Obesity in pets can be caused by many factors including:

owners giving their pet too many treats;
owners not understanding what their pets daily food intake requirement is;
multiple people in a household overfeeding the pet;
just not having the time to exercise a pet.

Do you give your pet treats on top of their regular daily meals? If so, do you adjust their food intake to count for treats? Do you read the back of pet food packaging to work out the daily food intake requirement for your pet?
