I used to give my dog all kinds of treats each day for just about anything that he did. I loved giving him treats because he always got so excited when he saw them and he really seemed to enjoy them greatly. I barely even noticed that he was putting on a lot of weight until my vet said that my dog was overweight and I was killing him with kindness when I fed him all of the treats that I gave to him.
I was immediately concerned about the health of my dog since the vet gave me a list of illnesses that might be caused by him being overweight. I knew that I had to stop giving him so many treats even though it would be a challenge to get him to stop wanting them. Since I knew that my dog deserved to have a long and happy life, I had to make it stop.
I started to work on getting him to lose the extra weight that he had gained so quickly. I was able to start giving him just a few healthy dog treats everyday so that I would be able to keep him at a weight that was much better for him. He has already started to lose a good amount of the access weight that he has been carrying.
