Like all other species, including humans, dogs can and do occasionally become overweight. This condition, if left untreated, will eventually begin to cause health problems for your dog so it’s best to get it under control earlier rather than later.
One quick way to determine if your dog is overweight is to feel his ribs. If they are easy to feel through a thin layer of fat and skin, then he’s probably just fine. But if you can’t feel the ribs, then he’s most likely overweight. However, the best and most reliable way of finding out whether your dog is overweight or not is to take him to the vet. Not only can they weigh your dog there but they can offer helpful advice too.
If your dog is indeed overweight, one easy thing to look at is whether you are giving too much “people food” or too many dog treats. While there are plenty of healthy treats out there such as Beneful’s Baked Delights, giving too many of these treats will cause your dog to put on extra weight. Beneful recommends that no more than 10% of your dog’s total daily caloric intake come from treats.
Your next step would be to determine what the proper portion size for your dog should be. This varies depending on breed, size, and gender so ask your vet to be sure. Beneful’s Originals and Beneful’s Playful Life dog food are both excellent choices and portion information is printed on the back of every bag. Using this information as a guide will go a long way in helping your pet to maintain a healthy weight.
If you have tried adjusting portion amounts and cutting back on treats and your dog is still not losing weight, it may be time to try some diet dog food. Beneful’s Healthy Weight dog food with real chicken seems to be a good choice because it still contains 100% of the nutrients dogs need while also providing less calories.
Of course, all of these steps will be more effective if you help your dog live an active lifestyle. We all need exercise and dogs are no different. Getting outside and running or playing together will go a long way in making you both healthy and happy for years to come.
