Overweight Dog VS Dog Obesity

If a dog has a good appetite and is in a generally good state and puts on wait continually, then you can say that he has a case of obesity, scientifically called adiposity, a frequent disorder in dogs, perhaps the most frequent. According to confirmed sources, 25 percent of all dogs in Europe are too fat. Obesity is recognizable when, in overall, the body is round; when you grab a fold of skin, you have a real chunk of bacon. Obesity comes as a result of a clear disproportion between the amount of food given and the movement, especially when you calculate the dog's diet based on human standards.If a person is a fast and avid eater, it is because he is abnormally hungry and desires to be filled. In a dog, it's different. As a pack animal, he must always share his irregular food with the other members, in which those of a higher rank have the preference. In his domestic community, he generally occupies the lowest rank, and so he feels conditioned to eat his food as fast as possible. Therefore, you shouldn't systematically refill his plate as soon as he finishes; instead, limit the amount of food in reasonable terms. Treating obesity is, apparently, quite simple (reduce the rations), but, actually, it is very hard. First of all, have a serious talk with everyone at home that feeds the dog throughout the day, instructing them not to feed the dog – sounds harsh, but it needs to be done!. Give the dog his food right before a walk; that way, he will get distracted and won't come around begging. His meals should be reduced (approximately half his normal ration) and contain little fat and carbohydrates. There are other special fat-reducing diets. If you give them these, bear in mind that they are intended to be the only meal the dog can eat. After initially hesitating, which will even be good for him, your dog whatever he's offered. You have to calculate at least two months until he reaches the desired weight. Normal movement is good, in any case, and speeds up the process, but it can not replace the diet. house dogs do not live in the wild like wolves do, which can run thirty to fifty miles in one night.

Important: Your dog must only be fed by one person of the family - and no treats!
