Weight Problems in Shih Tzu: Is Your Shih Tzu Fat?

Did you know that obesity is one of the greatest health risks among Shih Tzu?

Obesity is caused by excessive eating and unhealthy binges just as it is in humans. Often, this situation is triggered by some environmental factors that may lead to more problems when not controlled.

Like humans, Shih Tzu develops certain diseases when they are overweight. These diseases, if not corrected, can lead to more serious complications including death. Here is a list of some of the repercussions of obesity in Shih Tzu:

1. Arthritis

Obesity in Shih Tzu tends to put extra weight on their bones. In turn, the joints and other parts of the Shih Tzuís bones develop arthritis.

Excess weight in Shih Tzu may also initiate the development of other muscle and joint problems like spinal disc disease, hip dysplasia, and cracks on the joint ligaments.

2. Diabetes

Like humans, Shih Tzu can get diabetes too. We all know for a fact that overweight cause diabetes in humans. This can also happen in Shih Tzu. The reason is that the more fat stored in the Shih Tzuís body, the greater its system will generate insulin in order to cope with its growing mass. Hence, Shih Tzu has the tendency to resist too much insulin in the body. The end result is diabetes.

3. Skin problems

Obesity in Shih Tzu can cause some skin problems. This is because excess fat deposits are being stored in their skin; hence, their owners are having a hard time grooming them. When Shih Tzu lacks proper grooming, there is a tendency to accumulate bacteria, dirt, or other elements that could cause harm to your Shih Tzuís skin. In the end, they develop rashes, skin ruptures, and infections.

4. Capacity to tolerate heat

With too much fat deposits accumulated in their skin, Shih Tzu are more inclined to problems concerning heat tolerance. This is because dogs find it hard to tolerate heat due to the build-up of fats in their skin. That is why most obese dogs are prone to heat stroke especially during summer time.

5. Respiratory problems and other heart diseases

Like humans, obese Shih Tzu also has the tendency to develop respiratory problems and heart diseases. This is because the chest cavity is already covered with thick fat deposits. Hence, whenever the Shih Tzu breathes, the lungs are having a hard time expanding and so does the heart. The problem starts when the heart and the lungs can no longer produce the right amount of oxygen and circulate it within the dogís body.

6. Gastrointestinal problems

Obesity in Shih Tzu causes some problems in their intestines and pancreas. This problem results in an inflamed pancreas which is very painful to the Shih Tzu and can also cause death.

7. Liver problems

Fats are harder to strain and this can pose a problem to the Shih Tzuís liver. When the liver can no longer function well because of the fat deposits that accumulated in the area, liver problems may occur and may even cause the death of your Shih Tzu.

These health problems are indeed life threatening. It depends upon the owner how to combat these problems in order to keep your Shih Tzu healthy.

One of the greatest ways to solve weight problems is a strict exercise schedule. It is a must that owners create a healthy exercise schedule for their Shih Tzu. This can be done by taking them for a walk every afternoon or letting him run through a field.

The best thing about this program is that not only the Shih Tzu gets the chance to exercise but their owners as well. So, itís a double benefit.

Next is to create a healthy diet for your Shih Tzu. Diet meals are extremely important for Shih Tzu so that they can still obtain the necessary nutrients they need in order to stay healthy. This should include the right combination of fiber, meat, vegetables, vitamins, and minerals.

However, Shih Tzu owners should always keep in mind that when their Shih Tzu is taking fiber, more water should be employed so as to prevent constipation.

Alternatively, Shih Tzu owners should also remember that before incorporating all of these things for your Shih Tzu, itís best to consult the veterinarian first.

For healthier and happier Shih Tzu, give them the best love and care you can plus a great dietary regimen. As they say, a healthy Shih Tzu is a happy Shih Tzu.
