Secaucus, NJ (December 2013) - As the holidays wind down many people start worrying about how they are going to shed those pesky holiday pounds in the New Year. Just like humans, pets also tend to gain weight over the holidays from all the extra goodies given to them by well-intentioned family members. In fact, according to a study by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, on average dogs gain 0.3 pounds and cats gain 0.4 pounds during the holidays, which is equivalent to 5 to 7 pounds for a person. Unfortunately, pets cannot choose to diet and exercise on their own, that’s why Freshpet, the only company making fresh, refrigerated food for pets made in the USA, has teamed up with pet nutrition expert and 12+ year practicing veterinarian Dr. Katy Nelson to offer tips on how you can help your pet battle the bulge: About Freshpet Freshpet, headquartered in Secaucus, New Jersey, is the only company making fresh, refrigerated pet food nationwide.
