With the arrival of the new year comes a variety of New Year’s resolutions.
We vow to better ourselves in many ways, including through losing weight.
Pets may also have put on a few extra pounds.
That’s why Bark Avenue Pet Supply in Mesa is holding the January Pet Weight Loss Challenge, which encourages owners to weigh their pets weekly and commit to regular exercise programs.
Overweight pets can suffer from a host of health risks, including arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, difficulty breathing, decreased stamina, heat intolerance, increased risk of cancer, decreased quality of a pet’s life and a shortened life span.
Register before Jan. 5.
Bark Avenue is located at 3109 E. McKellips Road in Mesa. Call (480) 832-2510 for more information or visit www.barkavepetsupply.com online.
