In this week's edition of Pet Talk, Dr. Jen Klabunde from Northwood Animal Hospital talks with 7&4's Brody O'Connell and Megan Moore about obesity in pets.
Dr. Klabunde said that 55% of pets are overweight and this leads to decreased life expectancy, arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer.
Dr. Klabunde said giving your dog a hot dog is the equivalent of a human eating three cheeseburgers.
She also said giving your cat an ounce of cheese is the equivalent of a human eating three and a half cheeseburgers or four Hershey's chocolate bars.
