The University of Tennessee and Hill's Pet Nutrition have created the Healthy Weight Protocol, a method veterinarians can use to quantify a pet's excess weight and develop a plan to address it, according to veterinarian Jennifer Coates. The combination of expanding pet waistlines and owner misunderstanding contributes to the challenge of addressing this important pet health concern, Dr. Coates writes. Even though the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention reports that 53% of dogs and 55% of cats are deemed overweight or obese by a veterinarian, 22% of dog owners and 15% of cat owners think their rotund pet is at a healthy weight.
