Managing Your Dog’s Weight

We all want what’s best for our pets. But sometimes, just like us humans, they can start to develop some extra weight. It’s important that your dog remain at a healthy weight in order to live well, but how do you fix this if your dog has gained a lot? Check with your Myrtle Beach vet for a diet plan.

Diet

It all starts with what your dog is eating. If you are just leaving around food for your dog to graze on throughout the day, then you’re going to run into some trouble. Ask your Myrtle Beach vet exactly how much food your dog should get and at what intervals throughout the day.

Exercise

Also make sure and ask your Myrtle Beach vet about putting your dog on an exercise program. This might mean longer walks or activity at the dog park, but it’s always fun!

At the end of the day, barring any other medical condition that your Pet Clinic Myrtle Beach can warn you about, an overweight dog simply needs to burn more calories than it eats. Diet and exercise are the key to their healthy living.
