Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Good morning, I would be more than happy to answer your questions. It seems that Timmy has a weight problem which is probably making his arthiritis worse. Just like people, sometimes we need to be on a diet that is better suited for him to loose weight. I would recommend him being on a prescrition diet that has lower calories but it is the same amount of food, these can be obtained by your regular veterinarian. Diest such as Hills Science Diet R/D, IAMS Weight Loaa (Restricted Calorie) and Royal Canine Calorie Control are good prescrtion diets that have low fat, high fiber and have the lower calories than normal dog food but usually about the same amount. There are over the counter foods that are not ideal but can be used as well to decrease calories and fat in the diet. I would recommend Puina One Healthy Weight Formula.
If you would like to use a more effective way and obtain the prescription diet then please contact your local vet to discuss the best weight plan diet.
I hope this helps and I would be more than happy to answer any further questions when you are back online. Please don't forget to rate my response
Why am I recieving poor service? What else would you like to know?
I'm here to answer questions that you have but you haven't returned any response to me, I would like to discuss more about Timmy but you weren't online at this time.
I had no other choice. Your response was OK, but nothing I didn't already know. I am not sure what I expected but since you added nothing I didn't already know I had to choose poor or pay for service I already knew.
