If you think obesity is just a problem for humans, think again. According to recent findings over 54 percent of dogs and 58 percent of cats can be classified as overweight or obese. Considering their size, even one or two pounds of additional weight on pets can place significant stress on the body. Travis Brorsen, a pet expert, professional dog trainer and the host of Animal Planet’s new show, My Big Fat Pet Makeover, is on a weight-loss and behavior modification journey with pet owners and their overweight animals with the goal that the pets (and humans) get to live a longer, healthier, and happier life together!
