3 Tips for Helping Your Cat or Dog Lose Weight

  1. Avoid free feeding. Carefully measure out food and treats ahead of time.
  2. Feed a high protein diet. Carbs found in dry food and treats spike insulin and make pets hungrier sooner. Fats and protein digest more slowly and help control hunger.
  3. Add fiber in the form of low calorie vegetables such as chopped green beans and squash or pumpkin to your pet’s food. Fiber helps your pet feel full and if your pet is overweight, you can replace some of the higher calorie food with lower calorie vegetables
