The Pet Fit Club competition has launched in order to help fight the obesity crisis that is affecting dogs. By inviting owners of obese pets to apply for a chance to help fight fat and save their animals life. Owners who live in the UK can enter their pets at www.petfitclub.org.uk ; hopefully programs like this will launch in the United States.
Pet obesity can lead to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and even death. Owners are asked to fulfill an hour of daily exercise for their pets.
