Quick Tip Of The Day

Filed under: DogTips

Humans aren't the only ones who tend to gain weight during the winter months.

Our dogs can too.

Except a few extra pounds on a dog can cause some pretty serious health problems.

So the American Kennel Club (AKC) has some tips on how to help your dog shed more than just their winter coat.

- Check with your dog’s veterinarian before starting any new exercise routine. Have your dog “weigh in” at the vet to determine how much weight he needs to lose. You need to consider your dog’s age, health, and current activity level, and a vet checkup will start your dog on the right track.

- Simply letting your dog out in the backyard doesn’t qualify as exercise. Try playing a good game of fetch with him.

health-problems-from-wearing-skinny-jeans.jpg

Do you wear skinny jeans? If you said yes, you may want to reconsider.

The Wall Street Journal published an article on Tuesday describing the health problems that can come from squeezing your "cheese stick legs into matchstick jeans".

For men skinny jeans can cause: nerve compression, interfere with digestion, abdominal discomfort, distention, heartburn, belching a few hours after eating, lower back pain and lipoatrophia semicircularis or horizontal lesions around the thighs.

And women, don't think for one second these problems can't happen to you too! Not only can you suffer from all of the above, but skinny jeans have also been known to cause yeast infections.

Ick!

No that you know the facts will U stop wearing skinny jeans???

How Obesity Affects The INSIDE Of A Child's Body

Filed under: HealthBodyObese

It's no secret that childhood obesity is one of the biggest health problems growing in the United States.

While it's obvious what all that weight does to the outside of a child's body, it's not always apparent how it is affecting the INSIDE of the body. CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta took one 250 pound 12-year-old boy to the hospital to show him just that and the health risks he is facing at such a young age are shocking, to say the least.

Check out the video above to see how obesity affects more than just appearances and why it's so important for parents to encourage their kids to lead healthier lives.

Epileptic Turtle Gets A Brain Scan

Filed under: Turtle

This is the most adorable thing to happen in a lab!

British scientists are sparing no expense to treat a very special patient with epilepsy: A 154-pound turtle named Snorkel.

The loggerhead turtle has had many health problems, including epilepsy for the past 11 years.

She has been at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth and, according to the Sun, worried keepers recently went to the unusual expense of getting her an MRI scan on a machine usually used for obese people to see if she has a brain tumor. LOLZ!

Fit or Fat: What's Your Pet’s Body Condition Score?

Filed under: Exclusives!HealthPetsTipsDr. Patrick Mahaney

Teddy Hilton's Dr. Patrick

How can you tell if your dog or cat is too fat?

The scale only provides a number, which cannot reasonably give an accurate estimate of your pet’s health regarding their weight. Therefore, it is best to evaluate your pet’s body condition score (BCS).

The ideal BCS is 5 out of 9. The extreme obesity and a serious candidate for The Biggest Loser Pet Edition is 9 out of 9.

Place your hands onto your pet’s ribs. Can you feel the individual ribs and the spaces in between?

Stand your pet up onto all four feet and carefully observe them from above and from the side. Does your pet’s abdomen (“stomach”) stick out beyond their ribcage (from above view) or swing pendulously down towards the ground (from side view)?

If you have answered yes to any of the above then your pet is too fat and has a BCS between 6 and 9.

Pets carrying excessive weight are more likely to develop arthritis, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, constipation, and other health problems.

Schedule an examination with your veterinarian to address your pet’s excessive BCS and establish a healthy weight loss plan.
