After a Christmas holiday of feasting and relaxation, I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s reluctant to face the bathroom scales this week…! After all, the British Nutrition Foundation reports that it’s disturbingly easy to eat as many as 6000 calories on Christmas Day alone (see here for the breakdown), so no wonder we're facing an increasingly overweight future. While this isn’t really a human health blog, I’d like to point out, in the spirit of One Health, that the same problems afflict our pets - especially our dogs. As part of the family, we want to indulge them - however, all those treats and extra snacks impact their health as much, or more, than ours. So in this blog, I’m hoping to harness all of our new-found New Year’s Resolutions to encourage us to work on our pets’ diets, as well as our own, and put some effort in to make all of us (human, canine, feline, whatever!) healthier, leaner and happier in 2018.
