America’s obesity problem isn’t just a people problem – a recent survey indicated that 40% of America’s pet population is overweight. And, just as in humans, obesity puts a dog at risk for serious illnesses such as arthritis and various skin diseases. Help your pooch slim down with the ten simple steps in My Fat Dog, including:
• the truth behind diet dog foods
• exercises tailored or different dog personalities
• advice on teaching older dogs new tricks, fitness games, and healthy eating habits

Featuring real-life dog weight loss stories, tests to rule out serious health problems, tips from top veterinarians, and a special section on multi-pet households, My Fat Dog offers creative and entertaining ideas to help your pet lose weight and live healthy.
