InPet Obesity is a growing problem for dog and cat owners.  APOP's 2016 clinical survey, 53.9% of dogs and 58.9% of cats were classified as clinically overweight (body condition score (BCS) 4) or obese (BCS 5) by their veterinarian. That equals an estimated 41.9 million dogs and 50.5 million cats are too heavy, based on 2016 pet population projections provided by the American Pet Products Association (APPA).
