That is, until you end up with a "pleasantly plump" overweight dog or cat on your hands. We want to shower our pets with so much love, that more often than not, the inevitable happens. That "love" leads to excessive weight gain that can, over time, lead to a variety of health issues.
I'll admit, we've always given our dogs table scraps and let them conduct the "pre-wash" cycle. That is, until we ran into a mega-esophagus issue with Zeus. Since his food intake is more restricted, we've cut out the table scraps and over abundance of treats for all of our dogs (after all, you can't give to one and not all four). While none of our dogs had a real need to loose weight, the benefits have been noticeable and I have been learning there are so many other ways to shower them with love.
For many other pets, however, a diet is inevitable to aid in weight loss. Is your dog carrying a few too many extra pounds? Perhaps he's a little thicker around the middle? Don't worry... you're not alone. It's not easy to admit, especially if we think it's our fault and due to all that extra love we give them.
Even once we have admitted the problem, many pet parents are afraid to ask their vet for help. They feel as though it will only lead to having to deprive their dog of love, and food. Well, what would you say if there is an easy and effective way for your pet to lose the weight she needs to, while you still get to shower her with love?
