Myth:  The Only Way to Show Pets Love is Through Food

        Pets' longing looks at your food or their empty food bowls do tug at the heartstrings.  But feeding pets too much isn't affectionate; it's a health risk.  Obesity can lead to other medical problems including skin issues, orthopedic complications, arthritis and heart and liver troubles.  Don't get hung up on the portion recommendations on a bag of pet food -- those recommendations are general and might not illustrate the amount your pet needs to eat.  Speak to your veterinarian about the portion size that's best for your pet.  And remember that when you want to show your pets a little love, active playtime is one of the best ways to do it!
