Achieving Balance and Harmony

DOG CARE

Overweight dog

My Cheena (a Chihuahua/pekinese) is overweight at 11 lb. I have had numerous suggestions on how to get her to lose about 3 or 4 lb. Can you give me some advice on how to take some weight off her? Her diet is boiled beef, beef marrow bones, and a snack of dehydrated chicken. Yeah, I sometimes cheat, but not as a habit.

I have always believed in the weight watchers approach to weight loss. I don’t forbid any specific food; I just provide 20% less of it. If you measure the amount of food that you are currently feeding and give 20 % less, you will see weight loss.

If you have trouble with the sad eyes when the bowl is a little less full, then add some green beans. Green beans are very filling, very good for a dog, and have almost no calories. I also use raw carrot sticks very often as a treat.

Good luck!
