nutrition science, pet food marketing information can be
confusing and overwhelming, but you can make healthier choices
for your dog. Commercially you can find many quality products,
for smaller and larger breeds of dogs. Most owners are looking
for complete and balanced nutrition. Fats and proteins are
not all your dog will need. There are many claims that some
foods are better or so-called naturally healthier. This

disease and weight gain/loss often go hand in hand. There
are many complex reasons, interconnected aspects and root
causes that might be leading to weight fluctuations, gains
or loss. Treatment professionals and regular visits, check-ups
and weigh-ins can help you track and monitor, ascertain
whether this is an issue where your pet is concerned. Essential
is to find out once and for all, whether medical or genetic
factors are at play here, OR if it is just feeding habits,
quantities, treats, type of food, lack of a fully-rounded,
exercise-filled daily routines, activities and exercise.
diagnostic tools, effective medications or other alternative
holistic therapies can make a world of difference too. You
can ensure that your pet is not prematurely or eventually
suffering from either these types of challenges or at your
reasons pets gain weight can have something to do with their
age, development stage or phase of life.

undeniable and needs to be addressed. You will, can and

needs differently almost is a no-brainer for most. So much
so that it often goes overlooked or underestimated, even
light on this aspect, the veterinarian can provide useful
information on what these needs are, how they change over
time, the best strategy, products and priorities that you
can follow and things to do together to ensure balanced
living, nutrition and health, maintaining a good, healthy
body weight (regardless of breed, size or age!) Never undervalue
that insights and shared wisdom from following a trusted
qualified, caring veterinarian’s advice and treatment

blood tests can provide some more insights into what you
need to do, change or intervene with in the life, menu,

revelation for most pet owners, pet-lovers is that they
might be to blame or contributing to excess weight in their
pets. We do not intentionally mean to harm or overfeed our
pets. Our habits, routines and choices just need to be brought
into full awareness, under scrutiny and potentially even
adjusted, eliminated in some cases, to ensure that our pets
are not getting the wrong message and nutrition (despite
of or because of our feeding, snacking, treating, loving
pampering, ‘care’ and TLC!)
that carry excess weight are at increased risk of developing
illness, disease, die prematurely or even get complications,
have difficulty moving and making it a top priority to have
them take in less calories daily, to lose and maintain weight
will become a daily routine, necessary adjustment for both
owner/handler/lover and pet. The relationship with each
other and with food will change forever and for the better!

calorie intake, gets stored in our bodies (and those of
our pets) as fat (energy storage). We are in constant survival
mode as far as that is concerned and this is part of how
we are designed and hot-wired to an extent.
IS YOUR ACTION PLAN FOR YOUR DOG’s HEALTH AND WEIGHT
MANAGEMENT OVER THE SHORT, MEDIUM AND LONGER TERM?
they are eating too much, simply put, they are not using
all the energy and nutritional sources, which will mean
the body excretes waste products, it does not need and stores
the unused calories, as fat! Still wondering where all that
weight gain and excess fat is coming from – start
writing down in a daily food journal everything your pet
consumes in a 24 hour period (over say 1 week) You will
or might be astonished, surprised and prone to do things
differently forever once you do this simple activity. Most
of us go about our business (feeding our pets), without
sparing a thought of how what we are in fact doing, might
be putting them at increased risk. Once you know or are
aware of it, it is a no-brainer – things have to change!
just lessening calorie intake by 5-10% can make a world
of difference in the life, health and weight of your dog.
Make it a priority to help them to lose weight, be more
active, eat less, eat better and use their energies, burning
fat (stored), calories and enjoying life, not over-indulging,
binging, over-eating! Also, take precautions not to starve
or under-nourish your pet with unrealistic expectations,
harming your animal in the long-run. Discuss your options
and strategies with your veterinarian for practical tips
and implementation over time, in the short, medium and longer
time-spans and periods.

questions to ask yourself about your dog’s nutrition:
How can they form an intricate part of overall nutrition,
meals and daily routines and how can you then incorporate
them into your pet's daily lifestyle (without leading to
more and unnecessary weight gain)? Does your dog/pet have
specific needs in weight loss that this food, portions would
enable, hinder or help?
will if affect my dog?
and does it offer enough for your dog to live, survive and
thrive on OR too much of things he/she does not need?

manufacturer, type of food, dog it is catering to. Again
these are averages and remember, it comes from those selling
the product, interested not so much in your pet’s
health necessarily, but seeing more of the products flying
off the shelf. Typically the suggestion is to discuss your
dog’s nutritional needs with your professional care-giver,
veterinarian to get the optimal weight, size and needs within
acceptable parameters for your dog specifically, on a case-by-case
merit. No two dogs are the same (not even from the same
litter). Their needs will be unique upon themselves and
even in a multi-dog, pet home, what is good for one, might
not be so for the other (genetics, breed, age, sequence
