Is your dog gaining too much weight? If so, you’re not alone as the Royal Veterinary College says that 1 in 14 dogs recorded by vets in 2021 were overweight. To get your dog on the right track to shedding excess pounds, these three simple ideas are a great place to start…
Give them the right food
Switch to a diet that’s specially developed for overweight dogs, such as Fresh Pressed™️ Senior/Light Chicken. Naturally lower in fat and calories, plus the added sweet potato, provides slow-release energy and fibre to keep dogs fuller for longer. Plus, we’ve packed it with loads of glucosamine, chondroitin, and green-lipped mussel to provide extra support and protection for their joints.
Choose healthier treats
Of course, no dog deserves to go completely without treats, but do give them sparingly. Tribal Rewards are healthy hand-baked biscuits, made with superfoods to provide a delicious treat with nutritious benefits. Our Coconut, Banana & Peanut Butter variety is formulated with coconut oil, which is fantastic for boosting metabolism.
Lose weight by walking
Alongside a more supportive diet and healthier treats, it’s important to get your dog moving around more – start slowly and build up their fitness over time. If you add a little extra time onto their walks every week, this will help with weight loss and lead to more quality time with your furry best friend!
Here's to healthier, fitter dogs and happy owners.
