- Measure,measure,measure. Fill your pet's bowl as you normally would. Empty that bowl into a standard measuring cup. Plan on feeding 10% less than what you see in the cup.
- Remember that treats have calories. Limit the amount that you feed daily. You can use ice cubes,green beans, and plain rice cakes as "belly fillers" for dogs. Although cats are super-smart, break their treats into smaller pieces.
- Just as with us,exercise for cats and dogs is a critical part of the weight loss plan.Start slowly-you might be surprised how much they enjoy it. Cats can be entertained with laser lights, milk caps, and string(under supervision)
- Dogs are a bit easier-a simple walk around the block will do you both a world of good. Spread meals on a cookie sheet-it will take longer to ingest. NO TABLE SCRAPS!
