Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is***** and I can answer your questions this evening. Just to confirm, is your question about her reluctance to go outside for exercise?
Is she still on pain medication such as anti-inflammatories? Obesity can cause generalized inflammation and joint pain, so she may need to stay on a medication such as carprofen for an extended period of time while you are working on weight loss.Have you checked her for other metabolic diseases that can make weight loss difficult such as Cushing's disease or Low thyroid?
Is she having any vomiting or diarrhea? Could her abdomen be painful tonight?
What prescription diets have you tried for weight loss? Science Diet, Purina and Royal Canin all make nice diets that are calorie restricted for weight loss.
Please let me know the answers to the questions so that I can help Maizy this evening.
