Carrying a few too many pounds around isn’t just a problem that affects humans; our pets are increasingly having weight issues too.

One in three vets say more than 50% of the dogs they treat are obese.

But help is at hand.

Meet Fit Fred. He’s a chubby golden retriever whose owner has made the decision to get him back on the path to health.

Fit Fred’s website has videos, tips and expert advice on how to help your furry friend shift the pooch podge.

Things you need to know about Over 50s life insurance:
Premiums stop after your 90th birthday but you still enjoy cover for the rest of your life. In the first year, if you die from natural causes we will refund any premiums, or if you die as a result of an accident, we will pay your cash sum. After the first year regardless of the cause of death we will pay your cash sum. Depending on how long you live, the total sum paid in premiums may be more than the cash sum payable on death. If you stop paying your premiums before the end of your policy your cover will stop 30 days after your missed premium and you won’t get anything back. This isn’t a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made. Inflation will reduce the buying power of your cash sum in the future.
