CALCULATE CALORIES:

Knowing the right amount of calorie required for your dog will help you to understand how much you have to feed. Asking a veterinarian to provide an estimated calorie intake for your dog is a good option. Another simple way to get an idea is to divide your pet's weight by 2.2 and multiply this figure times 30. Add 70 to the result and you will know how many calories your overweight dog will require. C A L C U L A T E CALORIES

VITAL VEGGIES:

VITAL V E GG I E S Baby carrots, green beans, celery, broccoli, cucumbers, sliced apple, and bananas are nutritious tasty food which is highly recommended over processed store-bought treats. At least 50% of the veggies should be green leaves as they are full of vitamins, antioxidant, and minerals like lettuces, dandelion leaves, parsley, etc. The rest 50% should consist of sweet veggies celery, green beans, green peas, etc.

TACTICAL TREATING:

Dogs should be rewarded with fun rather than with food unless she earns it. Dog owners often give too many treats to their dogs which hamper their health causing overweight. However, single ingredient treats like sweet potato, salmon can be beneficial as it helps to keep teeth clean and promote mobility. It is better to provide non- food reward as a few extra calorie intake per day can lead to a major change in a year. TACTICAL T R E A T I N G

DAILY WORKOUT:

DAILY W O R K O U T A daily workout for your dog is vital to loose extra weight and is an effective way to keep them fit and healthy. It is recommended to start with some brisk walk at the start and later increase the workout intensity with some quick walk, fetch game as your dog gets habituated with their daily routine. Research proves that daily workout can lead to a pain and disease-free life.

MONITOR WEIGHT:

Weekly or bi-weekly measurement and monitor of your dog's weight will help you to make your plan and restrict the extra calorie intake. It is not advisable to rely solely on dog's look and feel as it may lead you to give them too much food. As dog ages, their caloric need changes and so regular monitoring of your dog will help to prevent any bigger problems in future. M O N I T O R WEIGHT
