Recent Report Reveals Dramatic Increase in Chronic Disease in Pets
Date:6/28/2012

Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012

According to the 2012 State of Pet Health Report recently released by Banfield Pet Hospital, instances of many chronic diseases in dogs and cats have increased dramatically since 2007. Among the chronic diseases that have increased at an alarming rate in recent years are arthritis and kidney disease. Instances of arthritis have shot up by 38% in dogs and 67% in cats since 2007. Chronic kidney disease has increased by 15% in cats.

VetDepot’s Chronic Disease Infographic highlights the correlation between obesity and chronic disease rates in pets. Since 2007, the percentage of overweight or obese pets has increased 37% in dogs and 90% in cats. These percentages are of concern in the veterinary community because animals that are overweight or obese are at an elevated risk for suffering from a chronic disease. Of the pets that have been diagnosed with diabetes, over 40% are either overweight or obese. 40% of dogs that suffer from high blood pressure and 60% of dogs that have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism also suffer from being overweight.

Despite the rise in chronic disease, only 36% of dog owners and 28% of cat owners reported that they would take their pet to the veterinarian to manage an existing chronic condition. Pet owners should speak with their veterinarian about any concerns they have regarding their feline or canine companion’s health because early detection is important in treating and controlling chronic disease. Pet owners that are concerned about their pet’s weight should also consult with their veterinarian to develop a weight loss plan. A weight loss plan for pets typically includes more activity, less treats, and properly portioned pet food or a weight control pet food
