overweight Pap

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

I have a 10 year old, neutered, male Papillon. He suffers from a bad disk in his back and now he weighs 13.5 pounds. I really want to help him lose weight but don’t know what to do beyond reducing the amount of food that he receives. I feed him a homemade dog food that is low fat already – most of his carbohydrates come from the vegetables in his food. I do not add potatoes or corn to the vegetable mix and the meat source is boneless, skinless chicken. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to help Ziggy lose weight?
