My 7 year doggie, a spitz – Joomki, has put on weight. I feed her twice a day. She has a bowl full of chicken stock with vegetables either with rice or roti in the morning and the evening. She also has her treats- biscuits and chew sticks. Her vet tells me that she is much over weight. How do I make her loose weight? Please help.


What you have to remember is that the diet you feed your dog should be complete and balanced. This means, the balanced diet will meet all her required nutrients and energy demand, regardless of her life stage or life style. Home made diets, depending on the sources, vary with respect to quality, digestibility, nutrient content and therefore is not balanced and complete.
