Obesity and Your Dog

Obesity can cause mobility issues and make your dog more prone to diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers. Thus it is important to keep your dog at a normal weight. Your dog is probably fat because of a combination of too much food and too little exercise. Determine how many calories your dog should ingest daily and work to stay within that amount. Be sure to count treat calories in your dog’s daily allotment. Consider feeding your dog a weight control formula food so he is full while he is losing weight. Increase your dog’s time exercising. Walks are great and you can increase the distance and pace as your dog gets into shape. Don’t forget a romp in the dog park or your yard. Provide toys or exercise apparatus that encourage movement. Be patient since weight lost can be slow. Contact your vet in the Lawrence area of Indianapolis, IN to learn more. Schedule an appointment today!
