A new study by Pfizer Animal Health reveals that close to a quarter of Texas dogs are obese. That’s almost 4% above the national average for dogs, but more than 10% below the national average for humans.
Naturally, the numbers are closely related, as veterinarian Michael Woolley told CBS. The main cause for both is eating too much yummy food and not exercising; the main fix is eating dry foods like Kashi or Pedigree Healthy Weight and working out.
But it seems that bad habits are contagious even cross-species, and old habits die hard—which adds up to bad news for both dogs and our wallets. And even worse news for pigs.
