We’re so excited to have this video that Dr. Marty Becker filmed especially for DogTipper! Dr. Marty Becker is known as “America’s Veterinarian” and is seen on “Good Morning America” and “The Dr. Oz Show.” Dr. Becker has teamed up with PETCO to bring awareness to some heartbreaking health problems that can be a result of overweight pets.
Dr. Becker provides some really helpful tips in this video, answering our questions about how to recognize dog obesity. You’ll see him with a beagle in this video showing how you can feel your dog’s ribs, look at his tuck up (or lack of!), and “waistline” to determine if he’s overweight. Dr. Becker also provides some excellent tips on helping your dog lose weight through exercise and walking.
