Just the right weight, is your dog?
Overweight / Obese Dogs
Around 35% of all dogs in the U.K. are now overweight or obese! In the Trophy Product Leaflets there is a PFMA Size-Ometer guide. Use this as a guide to see what your dog should look like. And:
- Reduce food intake.
- Develop and stick to an increased exercise routine
- It is better to feed two or three small meals per day, rather than one large meal per day.
- Stick to the feeding amounts recommended and do not overfeed. Feed a fixed amount each day.
- Monitor the dog’s weight – get your local Trophy advisor to weigh your dog each month – this service is free.
- Keep referring to the PFMA Size–Ometer in the product leaflets. You should be able to easily feel but not see the ribs.
- Do not feed treats or titbits, no matter how hard this may be!
- Never feed human food.
- Keep a food diary, so the whole family can see what the dog has eaten so far on any one day!
- Weight loss in a dog is a slow and steady process and can take up to 6 months to see a significant difference.
- Remember calories need to be reduced and exercise needs to be increased.
