dog-smilingSo after procrastinating, you’ve finally decided to put your overweight dog on a diet. Good for you! You are going to prolong his life and restore his health.  Then your dog looks up a you with those big brown eyes and begs “please just one little treat.” According to one of the veterinarians at Tuft University, now is the time to take action. She suggests that you should look to distract him and reward him with something else other than food. Maybe take him outside for a little extra exercise.  If you are not able to take your dog out at the moment, try giving him a healthy treat. Non starchy vegetables such as celery or carrots are good options but it’s OK reward him only once in a while with beef or chicken treats.
