Pet Obesity Rates Rising Sharply.¹
More than half of all cats and dogs in the U.S. — nearly 90 million pets — are either overweight or obese, according to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP). Based on 2017 pet population projections provided by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), this means more than 100 million pets weigh too much.2
These statistics show an alarming increase in clinical obesity:
- In cats, the obesity rate climbed from 22% in 2009 to 31% in 2016
- In dogs, the obesity rate rose from 9% in 2009 to 20% in 20161
