#1 Overfeeding (Feeding More Plus Giving Away Indulgent Food)
Obesity is one of the major contributors to decreasing a dog’s lifespan.
Dogs do not break down food the way humans do so it’s important to research their dietary requirements beforehand, especially the quantities to be served.
Remember, not all dog breeds are athletic and zesty, some are more laid-back by nature, hence it’s prudent to limit food portions for these types of dogs, especially avoiding fatty foods in their diet as they may not be able to burn it off.
Adjusting meals according to the dog’s age, activity level, and health conditions is also a good way to go.
