America; You Are Over Feeding Your Pets
As many of you know America is serious about our pets. You and I are also equally as serious. We all get really upset when animals are not cared for properly and of course we will never feed our animals Tainted Dog Food with Mad Cow Disease from Carson City NV as was recently in the news.
Why are we not concerned with over feeding our animals? It seems our food these days has a lot more fattening additives, yet we then throw a piece to our pets, thinking we are making them happy, when really we are killing them. Most people love their pets but are we responsible for their early demise. One vet we talked to said that nearly 80% of all dogs, which come in are well over their normal breeds ideal weight. Meaning they waddle, are slow and can get doggy diabetes and other horrible problems. You should walk your dog or exercise him or her at least 30 minutes per day or 1 hour if possible. Would you look at this cat? How can you laugh at this, this is sickening and it is due to people not caring about their own animals, you are not doing a favor to your animal by over feeding them people food.
And listen to this story by the FBI that serial killers and rapeists are known to over feed their animals. I suppose you do not want to be thought of like this.
The fattest city is in Houston, and the people there most often will do whatever they can to shed pounds.
Having a fat dog is not funny, it is not a contest, yet in some places they actually have contests for the fattest dog?
America, please do not over feed your animals you are not doing them or yourself any favors. Think about it America.
