This book provides veterinary surgeons with a global perspective on obesity in dogs and cats. Moreover, the information and therapeutic strategies presented within can help ensure that pet owners become fully involved in improving the health of their pets.
The centrality of nutrition in the state of health of pets has emerged only in the recent years, both to prolong their life expectancy and to prevent the onset of serious diseases such as obesity, diabetes mellitus or liver lipidosis. The goal of this book is that each veterinarian can clearly answer the questions that are most frequently asked by the owners: Which type of food to choose? How to navigate between the different products on the market? The text also provides real recipes to be proposed in synergy with the nutritional handbooks of various food manufacturers, to consciously choose and be able to compare the nutritional characteristics of different products on the market.
