For people that want to lose weight, they will try exercising, changing their diet or popping a pill. Now dogs can join in on the trend of taking diet pills. Next month, Slentrol, a diet pill for dogs, will be on the market. The drug suppresses the appetite and limits fat absorption. Although the cost of the drug will be about $2 a day, millions of owners are willing to try the diet drug for their chubby furry friend. About 33% of the 74 million dogs in the US are overweight. I guess good old-fashioned exercise and a healthy diet doesn’t work anymore.
