Diets for Dogs

Recently a friend visited us bringing along her much loved dog. She was intested in learning a few basics about training the dog to sit,stay and come back to her when called. What stood out though as I surveyed this lovable but unfit dog was just how over weight it was.

It seems strange that when a dog is so much cared for as part of the family, it's owner is completely unaware of how much harm they are doing by overfeeding. The situation will be much worse if the dog is not getting enough exercise. If you are worried by this problem the best thing to do is contact your vet, have the dog weighed and ask advice on diet. Don't kill your dog by being too kind.
