Is Fido putting on a few pounds? Is his belly rubbing the ground when he walks? According to the Toda animal hospital of Japan, 30% of domestic animals are overweight, but now, thanks to Kao Soap Co., Ltd., you can find out exactly how much body fat your pet is carrying around.
The device is similar to body fat scales built for humans, but instead of standing on it, you place the four poles on the lower part of the dog's body and press a button. In just a few moments the animal body fat meter tells you if your pooch is big-boned or fat. If it is over 25%, King will need to go on a diet. The device is not available for general sale, so you'll have to ask if your local veterinarian has one.
