Just thought I would give an update on how Axle is doing on his diet. After 3 weeks of 1/3 smaller portions of ZP in the morning and cutting the jerky treats to only once or twice a week instead of daily Ax is looking visibly slimmer. I haven't been back to the vet to weigh him but his little pot belly is gone and I can just start to feel his spine and ribs again so I think he is almost back at a perfect weight. I have seen no lack of energy from the diet and it only took a few days of me being strong and ignoring his begging for him to get used to it. I will keep him on these portions for a few more weeks then re-assess, with no more daylight saving we are now only doing 1 walk a day during the week so his energy requirements won't be as high so what he is on now might be perfect.
