Doggie Diet Pill

Looks like a diet pill for dogs has been approved by the FDA folks. Apparently it diminishes the dog's appetite. I don't feel really good about this because I'd rather see more programs encouraging exercise rather than a quick fix. Exercised dogs are happy and healthy dogs. There's certainly a connection between the human obesity epidemic and the growing cases of obesity in dogs. What's next? Gastric-Bypass for Dogs?

And I'm a bit scared about humans getting this prescribed for Fido and taking it themselves to lose a few pounds. It's not a far fetched idea considering the current rage in Hollywood dieting is actually a supplement for race horses.

Read all about it here.

What do you guys think?

Yes I agree. Exercise the dog and see if that helps them to lose weight rather than just giving them a diet product.
