Association for Pet Obesity Prevention
Our goal is to work together and collect data of all the obese pets in the U.S. and create a solution that will decrease these numbers in the long run. We want to get reliable information and data out to the nation.
Reaching Out: We reach our paws out to all the pet owners in the nation. In 2012, 62% of U.S. households owned at least one pet and at least 50% of the dog/cat population is overweight
Benefits: You receive more information on how to provide your your pet with a healthy lifestyle. The feeling of satisfaction in knowing that your pet will live a longer life while being in good proportion. Virtual weight loss tools are available to better assist your process to stabilize your pet’s weight. Be a part of every Annual Pet Obesity Awareness Day survey that will be used to better conduct the study of the number of obese pets and its prevention
Operation: Pet owners who are devoted to their pet’s long life will participate in a yearly survey and fill out a chart. This information is then compiled and used to create data and results on the progress of the road to less obese and overweight pets
