Minnesota Has The ‘Heaviest’ Cats And Dogs In The Country…

A new report says Minnesota has the highest percentage of fat dogs and cats in the nation.

The report from Banfield Pet Hospital says 41-percent of dogs and 46-percent of cats in the state are overweight or obese. That’s compared to the national figure of about one-third of pets who have packed on some extra pounds.

And just like people, pets who struggle with their weight do so because of too much food and too little exercise, although breed and genetics do play a role.  Dog breeds with a higher prevalence of obesity include Labrador Retrievers, Cairn Terriers and Cocker Spaniels. Cat breeds with a higher prevalence of obesity include Manx and Maine Coon.
