Nutrecare expands dog food range

Due to the increase in canine obesity and weight problems, animal health company Nutrecare has decided to expand their range of low fat dog foods.

Obesity among pets is one of the most significant nutritional problems seen by veterinarians, according to Dr Dennis Jewell, a companion animal nutrition expert at Hill's Pet Nutrition. According to statistics, up to 50% of and dogs are overweight.
In light of this, many pet food manufacturers have brought out low fat and low calorie versions of their products. These new varieties also contain high levels of fibre to help the dog feel full and satisfied after a meal.

Healthy dogs live longer
In 2002 a study by Purina Petcare showed that the group of dogs who had a controlled food intake lived up to 15% or two years longer than the dogs who were allowed free access to food for 15 minutes a day.

More information on dog health and the new product range is provided on the Nutrecare website.
