Helping your animals get plenty of exercise
Tuesday, January 24th, 2017
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) — Our pets are dependent on us for their daily food and exercise routines. When the weather turns colder and the days get shorter we are less inclined to exercise our animals, especially our dogs. However, we keep their meals the same. This means they are congesting the same amount of calories, but they are burning less. This leads to them to gain “winter weight.” Animals need seasonal adjustments to their routine, just as we do.
