Dog & Cat Body Condition Chart

Our 2013 Pet Census revealed that 89% of dog owners believed their pet was the correct weight; yet national figures show that at least one third of dogs in the UK are overweight. Other studies by the PFMA shows that eight out of 10 dog and cat owners believe that their pet is just the right weight, although only 33% of dog owners and 23% of cat owners chose the "normal weight" picture when asked to choose from a series of pictures which most closely resembled their pet.

Our body condition charts should help you to check if your pet is at his/her ideal weight.
