Over the last several weeks I've talked about overweight pets, and that being overweight can lead to significant health issues for your dog. More than 50% of dogs are overweight! A weight gain of just 5 lbs. on a small dog can have a big impact on your dog's health. 5 lbs. on a small dog is the equivalent of a human gaining more than 30 lbs.! It's important to address a dog's weight problem before it leads to a more serious health issues.

CONSISTENCY IN BOTH DIET AND EXERCISE IS CRITICAL TO SUCCESS!
** Feed your dog at the same time each day if possible. Carefully measure out your dog's food at each meal using a measuring cup. Avoid randomly scooping out food, measure out the proper amount.
|Mom always measures our food to ensure we each get the right amount. My sister is a lot bigger than me so she gets more food than I do. I'm not so sure I'm OK with that, but I guess Mom knows what's best for us!|
If you're not sure what the proper amount is to feed your dog, use the Feeding Guidelines on the bag of food. Ask your Veterinarian if you need further guidance or advice on feeding amounts. It's important to feed your dog the proper amount of food each day!
|Use the Science Diet Perfect Weight Daily Feeding Guide provided on the back of each bag of food. This Daily Feeding guide is from the back of a Toy/Small Breed bag of food.|
|Over the course of a week, transition your dog from her current food to Science Diet Perfect Weight dog food for weight loss.|
|Walks are a big part of our daily exercise routine. We walk together as a family, which helps us all stay healthier and provides great bonding time with the dogs!|
|A couple of days a week we get more vigorous exercise by hiking in the mountains near home.|
