Dogs can pack on extra pounds they don’t need. Help them shed the weight and stay healthy.
You will need
- 1 A dog
- 1 Diet dog food and treats
- 1 Exercise
- 1 Regular weigh-ins
Step 1 Buy dog food Buy diet dog food. Your dog will take to their diet more easily if you don’t cut down their intake too much.
Look for low-fat food with plenty of digestible carbohydrates.
Step 2 Buy diet snacks If your dog is used to snacking at certain times of the day or as a reward for certain activities, offer them diet treats.
Avoid feeding dogs table scraps.
Step 3 Exercise Consult your vet to create an exercise plan for your dog. Instead of letting them outside a couple of times a day, take them for vigorous walks. It will benefit you both!
Step 4 Have regular weigh-ins Talk to your vet about coming in for regular weigh-ins to make sure your dog is not losing too much weight too quickly.
