I want to know some tips from you guys to help dogs lose weight. My friend has a Labrador and he is gaining weight quite easily. Is there any training and diet restriction for Lab. and other dog breeds to prevent obesity?


I love dogs. :wub:

No salt green beans added to the food can help reduce the amount of food--how much exercise does the dog get?

It really depends on what his size and activity level is, have medical causes been ruled out by a vet, and what/how much food the dog is being fed.

Yes, and it is also depending upon the breed of the dog. For example, the Labrador needs comparatively more exercise than most of the other breeds.

There are diet food products available in pet stores. One can opt for these after consulting the vet.

Hi,

 

I suggest you give him enough food, not too much, not too less. Usually, I give my dog 1 major meal in the morning and a light snack in the afternoon after I take him to walk. I also let him run and play for 1-2 hrs per day so he will get his exercise. Before I forget, he needs a lot of water so he will feel full.

Mine are fed 3 times a day in smaller quantities to prevent bloat--which occurs in giant breeds and deep chested dogs.

Give your dog a proper meal. Daily Walk is very very important for your dog. Play with your dog some outdoor games in park and open environment...

You just have to spend time with them doing physical activities like walking, jogging, playing fetch, and do not feed them extra food. You just need to be strict with its food intake.

Pics of the dog would be helpful, but always rule out medical issue first. From there it's proper diet and exercise.

Know the ideal weight for your dog's breed, a leisurely stroll is nice, but if you’re looking to lose weight and maintain that weight loss you need to get power walking (or running if you can!) to make sure those calories are getting used, If your pet is acting too hungry when you know he’s getting enough to eat, try adding in some fresh, steamed green beans, your veterinarian can also help you rule out ailments that can cause obesity, and always monitor your dog's weight.

Yes feeding your dog less for each meal will help reduce weight. Sometimes feeding just once or twice a day is good in reducing weight.
