2. Shared Habits

Pets and their owners often have a lot of the same habits that directly affect their health. A lot of owners share their exercise routine and food with their pets. Active people walk their dogs more than those pet owners with a sedentary lifestyle. Pets, particularly dogs, tend to indulge in table scraps which can be loaded with fat and calories. Because of these shared habits, dogs and cats can suffer from obesity, heart disease, and diabetes, just like their humans.
