Weight loss help!
So as mentioned elsewhere, Doug is a bit of a big boned little man. He is taking phenobarbitol and it has the nasty side effect of causing weight gain. He is muscular and built broad around the chest, but he is carrying too much weight. Not by a ton but I need to head off the problem before he gets any bigger.
His current diet is .45 of a cup of Acana pork formula a day, per the dog food calculator. He eats a teaspoon of wet food at night with his dinner to make his supplements more palatable. He takes his meds in a quarter of a greenie pill pocket (allergy formula), and if he gets a lot of treats I do drop his meals slightly. Regular treats are low cal, they like the sweet potato fry treats and they eat natural dental chews some too. He is frequently found eating raspberries, and if he eats a PB kong he gets less dinner.
I give regular walks, and he goes to work with me (dog daycare), and plays all day.
