Slentrol Is For The Dogs -- Literally

Why would dogs need a diet pill you might be asking. Obesity is a growing epidemic for humans, but dogs are becoming overweight too. Certainly, some dogs suffer from medical problems such as arthritis that make physical activity difficult, and that can lead to weight gain. However, many dogs are overweight simply because their human owners are also overweight. Owners who are physically fit see to it that their dogs also get enough exercise. Owners who are sedentary tend to have pets that our couch potatoes too. Pharmaceutical companies directly market diet pills to consumers via magazine advertisements and television commercials, and now they are also marketing diet pills to pet owners as well.

Are We Taking This Too Far?

Medication should really be avoided if at all possible, both for humans and their pets. Diet pills do not come without side effects, and it’s important to keep that in mind any time you are considering medication. It’s beneficial to first address excess weight by controlling caloric intake and making other dietary modifications and increasing physical activity. Those options work for most people. Medication can be necessary in some cases such as for individuals whose health is at risk by being overweight. However, medication is not a long-term solution. Both humans and pets will have to wean off diet pills, and the weight can come right back on unless lifestyle changes are made. Sometimes overweight individuals can benefit from receiving dietary counseling from a nutritionist or registered dietitian. Diet pills can be one way to address weight issues, but they cannot be used exclusively or for a prolonged period of time.

The good news is that for many individuals being a pet owner can ensure that they get enough exercise. Diet pills should not be considered before a genuine effort towards weight control is made by dietary and lifestyle changes.
