Obesity and Your Dog

Obesity can cause mobility issues and put your dog at risk for diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers. Thus it is important to keep your dog at a normal weight. Your dog is probably obese from a combination of too much food and not enough exercise. Determine the normal daily calorie count for your dog and work to stay within that number. Be sure to include treat calories in the daily count. Consider feeding your dog a weight control formula food so he feels full while he is losing weight. Increase your dog’s daily exercise. Walks are great and you can increase the distance and pace as your dog gets into shape. Look for opportunities to hike or swim. Play in the yard or a dog park when you can. Find opportunities to encourage movement. Be patient since weight loss may be slow. Learn more from your vet care Plano, TX.
