Helping Your Dog Lose Weight
Adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle will help your dog slim down.
Exercise and diet are essential to getting your dog in shape.
Your dog didn't get fat overnight so keep in mind he or she won't
get to their ideal weight over night either. Slimming down takes time.
Changing your dogs diet and reducing caloric intake will help your dog
reach his or her ideal weight. Your vet will give you suggestions for a
doggie diet to help your dog slim down. Another thing you can do is
read the labels on your dogs food. Feed according to the label and cut
back on snacks. It could be possible your dog was being fed too much
without you even realizing it.
All dogs need some exercise. Dogs who don't get enough exercise
will gain weight. Along with changes in diet, your dog needs to be
exercised. Dogs LOVE getting exercise, especially if they are with
their owners. Any attention you can give a dog, even while exercising
is something your dog will love. Some great exercise for your dog:
* Playing Fetch
* Going for Walks
* Swimming (not all dogs like water but those that do will love swimming)
After weight loss and getting fit your dog will have noticeably more energy.
