Losing weight is a common goal for the New Year, but it turns out pets needs to shed a few pounds.  For the eighth consecutive year, pet obesity is on the rise.  New data from Nationwide shows that in 2017 nearly 20-percent of their members’ pet insurance claims were for conditions and diseases related to obesity.  This added up to more than 69-million-dollars in veterinary expenses.  Veterinarian Dr. Carol McConnell says “The New Year presents a perfect opportunity to create regular exercise routines for our pets and to effectively manage their eating habits to avoid excess weight gain.”
