3. Your dog has digestive problems and constipation
If your dog is having regular problems defecating and struggling with repeated bouts of constipation, obesity could be a major factor.
Dogs who take in too many calories and burn off too few, particularly if they are eating rich or unusual foods, are at higher risk for developing dangerous conditions that affect the body’s ability to regulate and cleanse itself.
These include pancreatitis, liver problems, and diabetes.
