     No more multiplying by 7 years to learn your dog's age in people years. The DogAge Test measures your dog's biological age, based on your dog's health, breed, risk of disease, and behavior. What I don't like about the test - it doesn't take into account those who homecook food. So it's kind of difficult to answer the food questions. But if you sign up, they give you great tips of the week!

The pet food companies are the only ones who can make that statement. EVEN IF A BRAND YOU FEED IS ON THIS LIST, VERIFY IT WITH THE PET FOOD COMPANY. Links to their websites have been provided when possible.

49. A Dog Owner's Guide to Healthy Weight
     You and your dog have a lot in common. You play together. You eat and relax together. And if you aren’t careful about how much you eat and relax, you both might pack on unwanted weight together – excess fat that can be tough to shed. Exactly how that extra weight is shed can be just as important to your dog’s health as the weight reduction itself. Of course, the first step is identifying the problem. Canine Obesity – Just How Bad Is It? Canine obesity is an important – and very common – medical condition with serious health implications. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has estimated that there are 41.2 million pet dogs in the United States. Other sources estimate 40 percent of those dogs, approximately 17 million, are overweight or obese. A recent study conducted by Pfizer Animal Health found that veterinarians consider 47% of their patients overweight or obese but only 17% of dog owners think the same. Why the difference? It could be denial or the difficulty owners have in recognizing when their dogs are overweight.
