No More Fat Pugs! Safe Weight Loss

It’s important to work with your vet to monitor your dog’s weight, to make sure he’s not over or underweight for his breed/age/size. Overweight dogs are an epidemic (ESPECIALLY pugs!) so make sure to account leave room for treats used for training – or better yet, use the kibble!  For more great info on food and feeding, see the following:




See “Counting Calories” in the SEPT attachment and the article about choosing the right food for your dog below. (All from www.whole-dog-journal.com )
