What if the dog is too fat? Hurry up and accept this complete guide for dogs to lose weight!

 It must be right for the dog owner to pay attention to a balanced diet when it comes to the dog’s diet. But if you feed it all in one's mind, it will only cause the dog to become obese. Excessive obesity is not good for the healthy development and growth of dogs, so dog owners must pay attention to it. 


How to judge whether a dog is obese?

Dogs of moderate weight and well-proportioned body generally meet the following points:

1. The ribs can be felt without pressing;

2. From the side, the waist is concave (a long-haired dog can judge whether the waist is concave by touching it with his hand);

3. The part from the thoracic cavity to the hind legs shows a tendency to shrink;

4. There is no looseness in the abdomen.

What is the harm of obesity to dogs?

Increase physical burden: Excessive weight will add a lot of burden to the joints and function of the dog. It is easy to cause arthritis and hip dysplasia. 

Disease risk: Excess fat accumulates in the dog’s liver, causing liver disease. Obese dogs have increased insulin secretion and have a higher risk of diabetes. 

Skin problems: The skin folds caused by fat accumulation can easily breed bacteria and parasites, and the folds are inconvenient to clean up, which can cause skin diseases.

Control its mouth: start from diet to lose weight for dogs

Reduce food intake: But you cannot simply and rudely reduce the amount of staple food. Reduce the amount by 10% for the first time, and then gradually reduce the amount after the dog adapts. But be careful not to make the dog hungry just to lose weight. Not to mention the inability to achieve weight loss, it will also lead to unbalanced nutrition in dogs. 

Replace snacks: Snacks in daily play and training have a great temptation for dogs, and the interactive efficiency has also risen sharply. However, in the selection, you should try to favor low-calorie and low-calorie products, and they are only used as rewards and cannot be used as a staple food. 

Improve diet: Reduce the intake of high-calorie, high-carbohydrate foods and increase the intake of nutrient-dense foods. There is special dog food for weight loss, which provides the nutrients needed for the growth of the dog, and does not cause obesity. 

Open its legs: starting from exercise to lose weight for dog

walk: Take the dog out for a walk half an hour after the meal. On the basis of daily walking time, gradually extend the time. But you can't walk blindly and take the dog home to rest before getting tired. 

Swim: One of the most effective ways to lose weight. While achieving the effect of whole-body weight loss, it can also improve the dog's physical fitness. 

game: Games such as catching the frisbee and catching the ball can not only help the dog to exercise, but also help the shoveler and the dog to establish contact and cultivate emotions.
