Healthy weight loss tips for your dog
Weight gain creeps up on your dog as much as it can on a human. Suddenly, that lean frisky dog you know has become a fat lounge hound. This is just one of the signs that your dog may be putting on more than its desired weight. Dog weight control can be a tricky issue. Of course, you should first verify this with your vet to match an ideal weight against breed, size, age and individual characteristics. Then, put a halt to any between meal treats that may be considered as showing your love to your dog. Consider that just 190 gms. of chewy treats is equivalent to a human being eating 7 doughnuts at one sitting. For your dog, it could work out to over 67% of excess daily intake. Beyond food, exercise is also important in keeping your dog fit, so don’t spare those mile long walks or a quick jog in a park. All it takes to maintain a healthy weight for dogs, is just 20 to 30 minutes of brisk walking or playtime with a ball or Frisbee. Most importantly, get your family involved and become responsible for keeping your dog’s weight plan on track.
