A food diary may be the answer to overweight dogs

If your dog is overweight, completing a food diary could be the answer.

Some dogs are picky eaters and some are greedy, although the culprit may be you, the owner. Too many treats can be harmful especially if you have started the habit of feeding your dog leftover food from your meals.

A large or working dog will need a sack of food with large tins of meat, where as a smaller breed will require less.

Pet food has changed for the better in the last few years with more and more pet food containing the essential vitamins required, in their ingredients. Online pet stores can give advice on the variety of dog food available for all breeds.

Write in your dogs food diary the amount or weight of food given on a daily basis.

If your dog reacts to the difference in the amounts you are feeding them, add a spoonful of plain yoghurt which contains enzymes to aid digestion. It is essential a dog has a food routine.

Note: Small dogs tend to like their protein and biscuits in a morning, eating the meat first and then chomping on the biscuits at their leisure thoughout the day.
