The Harm of Excessive Fat Intake to Dogs


  1. Fatty liver

High-fat feed, or due to the increased fat formation in the body after low-carbohydrate ingestion, can cause too much fat and fatty acids to enter the liver.

In addition, a lack of essential fat and a large intake of cholesterol can also cause fatty liver.

  1. Ketosis

The cause of ketosis is the mobilization of fat.

Ketosis can occur when the dog is hungry, diabetic, or high-fat food.

  1. Obesity

Excess fat in a dog's body is a nutritional metabolic disease in which the body's total energy intake exceeds the consumption, and the excessive part is accumulated in the form of fat.

Obesity is often complicated by heart disease, fatty liver, diabetes, and osteoarthropathy.

  1. Hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis

Hyperlipidemia is a metabolic disease in which the concentration of blood lipids, especially cholesterol or glycerides and lipoproteins, is elevated.

It is characterized by elevated blood lipids and abnormal appearance of blood.

It usually occurs in dogs, and the primary cause is that the dog has ingested fatty food and insufficient exercise.
