Cake, Ice Cream, beer, the 24 hour drive thru at McDonalds…it all sounds so good! However, these are all contributing factors to the American Obesity Epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1/3 (35.7%) of U.S adults are currently obese. This obesity increases chances for heart attack, stroke, type-2 diabetes, and cancer. Unfortunately, American eating habits and American obesity have also spread to their pets. Actually, pets are overweight at an even higher rate than humans! The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention found that 52.5 percent of dogs and 58.3 percent of cats are overweight. This is because pet owners often over feed their pets. By utilizing an automatic pet feeder that rations your pets eating and only dispenses food at certain times, you can help your pet to be healthy enough to enjoy a long, happy life.
