All dogs get fat

Isn’t it strange how obesity in dogs (and cats) has increased just like obesity in humans has?

Dogs and cats are carnivores, yet there seems to be a push to give them a “balanced” low-fat diet supplemented with vegetables and cereal. I’m not sure what science this is based on, but I have a feeling it contributes to obesity in carnivorous animals.

When I was a kid, I don’t remember our animals being fat. I know there are other modern factors besides grain in pet food, but it has always struck me funny that someone would think dogs need to eat rice. It’s good for rice farmers, but is it good for dogs?
