My pug is very overweight. How can I help him loose weight if he is strickly an inside dog? He uses pads for his potty. The only time he goes outside is in his carrier to the vet's office. My vet suggested cutting back on his food, but that doesn't seem to be working. He gets 1 cup of Mighty Meat per day, but my husband sneaks table food to him.
The key to weight loss is less food and more exercise. There are many different weight loss diets for canines. Your vet may want to prescribe one such as Science Diet W/D or R/d. You can also try reducing the amount of food your pet eats by 1/3. vetcare
