Last time he had a complete vet checkup was about 1-2 years ago, when we didn't have him. They told us the results were fine. We've only had him for about a month and a half now, but I will be taking him this coming weekend to the vet for a consultation, bloodwork, questions on diet, etc. So I am hoping that the doctor gives us some good advice on what might be wrong.
I don't think I am feeding him too much. 1/4 cup in the morning and 1/4 cup at night and he eats it as if he is starved within a minute. I added in the 1-2 treats as well because what happened two nights in a row, was him vomiting in the morning yellow bile. From my research, most people said that was a sign of hunger (acid building up in the stomahc) and that feeding a treat before bed or two would help to fix it. It has worked and he doesn't vomit now. But it just shows me that he is still hungry I bet.
He never walked before he got heavy... his previous owners kept him in most of the time and carried him everywhere when he needed to go out. He doesn't like toys, so exercise inside is just impossible. I've bought quite a few, and he just gets annoyed when I try to play with him using them. We don't have a pool, only a bathtub so can't do the swimming idea.
I am surprised he eats carrots. I just started those last night and he seems to not mind them. So I will be swapping that in place of his treats instead of the doggie ones. Can someone give me some more info on the green bean diet and how much of his food I should be kibble and how much green beans? Any particular kind of green beans? Raw I assume?
Thanks for all your suggestions. Here are some pics... Hopefully the vet appointment this coming weekend will be a bit helpful.
