'Go Fetch!' Pet Fitness Service Keeping Fido and Felix Fit and Trim

BERKELEY, Calif., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- With one out of every four dogs and cats in the western world reportedly obese, it seems that Fido and Felix are battling a health crisis of their own. Like obese humans, weight- challenged animals run a higher risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and joint and hip difficulties, among other medical problems.

With this knowledge, Fetch! Pet Care, the nation's leading pet care brand offering professional pet sitting and dog walking services, has instituted "Go Fetch!" -- a pet fitness service through which animals under the company's care get up, move and have fun for sustained periods of time with each visit.

For those opting for the company's Go Fetch! service, sitters arrive at the client's home outfitted with balls, frisbees, play toys, string and sheer enthusiasm to give the dogs and cats in their care a fun-filled workout. Each animal exercise regime is carefully tailored to the pet's age, ability, health condition, preferences and temperament.

"Americans spend over $41 billion annually on pet-related goods and services, yet animal obesity persists," said Paul Mann, founder and CEO of Fetch! Pet Care.

"Despite how much they love and provide for their pet, many owners apparently overlook exercise as a fundamental way to foster their dog's or cat's happiness, overall well-being and longevity -- or they simply don't have the time to properly exercise their pet on a regular basis."

Keeping a pet's weight in check through habitual exercise provides them with many benefits, both physical and emotional. Mann offers these insights on the importance of pet-focused Phys-Ed:

-- Health: As with humans, daily exercise provides the body with a

variety of health benefits, including improved metabolism and

digestion, enhancement of the immune system to better ward off
