Best diet dog weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Best diet dog weight loss


Avatar f tn 8 for WEIGHT LOSS 1.0 is what I use for pets almost at ideal weight or at ideal weight that have a tendancy to gain weight. Now you can see why every manufacturer over estimates pet food quantities to feed. 1. they want to sell pet food, but 2. it's dependent on the pet and their ideal weight as opposed to their current weight. Go online to find the kcal/cup or can/pouch in the foods you feed. Most dry foods have 4-500 kcal/cup.
Avatar n tn I had always been trim throughout my life but I find now that the pounds and inches have squated on my waist, shoulders and hips. I walk 20 mins everyday with the dog. My diet is strange as I not only have allergies but I cannot cook (too painful). I want my waist back. Any advice would be helpful. I list my allergies for you. Herbs and spices, Pesticides and fertizers, Fish. I also suffer from Irritable Bowel. I take Co-Dydramol for the pain and I don't sleep very well.
Avatar f tn Hi there I can see that you are very frustrated – for good reason. Did you know that exercising is not necessarily the best way to loose weight or keep it off? You are doing what so many people have done and most have had the same sad result – no weight loss. Sometimes, they have even gained more weight. Please know that exercise is not the main contributor to weight loss.
Avatar f tn I'm curious what kind of weight loss some of you had. Is it common or just depends on the person. Also is it the drugs causing weight loss or the fact that you may not have an appetite.Maybe this will be the only positive of the tx!!
Avatar n tn weight loss within the past 5-7 days.. not eating - no diarrhea - isn't eating regular dog food - will eat home made rice (bland) - no signs of worms - i have other dogs and they are not showing any symptoms.
Avatar f tn I felt the best on a low carb diet and lost weight, but the first week was torture. I couldn't even get out of bed for a couple of days when I first started it. I started on a Thursday, felt okay (a little weak) on Friday, and horrible over the weekend. The timing was great, because I was fine on Monday, when I started back to work. I stayed on this diet for about a year (didn't exercise) and lost 28 pounds. However, I grew tired of the food selection, and quit.
Avatar m tn 20 pounds weight loss on a little Yorkie? Are you sure? He cant have lost so much weight!...but never mind the deails...the best idea is to take him to the vet, and ask the vet to do a full blood profile. There are a few reasons why a dog starts to drink more water, eat more, and yet lose weight. Let the vet find out what is wrong, and begin treating your dog straight away, and hopefully there will be a great improvement.
155461 tn?1207868371 The weight watchers diet is the only thing that helped me even not prego! I just can't seem to follow it prego because of all the cravings and stuff! To tempting!
649848 tn?1534637300 What changes is everyone making that they find that works the best for them with their weight-loss? Don't laugh but just cutting out eating cheese helps me tremendously :) Really excited to hear about everyone's progress.
Avatar n tn I did not have to take it - I just had to monitor my blood sugar often and control it - really well with diet. - Has anyone had any expereice taking this as just a weight loss drug and are their serious side effects - if your not a full blown diabetic? My doc mentioned nothing about PCOS - I was recently 2 weeks late with my period (not preg. and tests showed not peri menopause)...I'm really nervous taking this stuff...
Avatar n tn I went to Mayo Clinic with nausea, vomiting,reflux, extreme fullness and weight loss from 105lbs to 78lbs. I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis with no reasoning for this condition. I had been battling stomach pain, parasites, full feeling for at least three years prior to this episode. They put on reglan worked great but I became very depressed. they recently put me on propulsid. It worked also but because of the scare about how it can damage the heart,they took me off of it.
497950 tn?1255867527 I realize this is not a current post but I recently started (8) months ago lamictal and Wellbutrin together and have been losing weight since then .. did your weight loss continue?
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar f tn #2 - - Weight Loss Well, the doctor told me that one side effect from the phentermine pills was insomnia...and I had that last night. It tends to be hard for me to fall asleep anyways, but last night I was up until about 3:00. The more I thought about it, the less tired I got. Blah! But hey...I'm really not all that tired today so I guess it balances itself out. Anyways, I went to my mom's today and weighed myself. It said approximately 158 lbs.
Avatar m tn Most of the calories that they do have in them come from carbs. From studies of human weight loss, we know that a high-carb diet makes you hungry, and that seemed to be the case for my overweight dog. My chunky dog is much happier with a high-protein food. She was constantly hungry on the "diet" dog food. I ended up putting her on kibble that is 30% protein and 12% fat.
Avatar f tn If not, it's worth considering as it will tell you exactly what the allergies relate to, which then means these things can be avoided. Without knowing what the dog is allergic to, changing diet to something that won't cause a problem will be long-winded and a bit trial and error. Karla knows more about good diet foods than I do, so she will undoubtedly advise on what "better" foods to feed for hyper-allergic dogs, but really, the patch-test is your best way forward in the long run.
Avatar n tn I KNOW it is because I am not moving my body. I stayed on the Weight Watcher's diet for 6 more months, but it wasn't working any more because I WAS NOT MOVING MY BODY! I just sit. I don't eat large amounts of food, but I don't burn off what I am taking in.
1103110 tn?1341258099 Well this started out good,I lost 2 lbs, but now that I weigh myself again I have put on 3 lbs. I have slipped up a few times and ate things I shouldn't have, but nothing major...I haven't been able to get out to much on the walking because the weather is maybe 40s and down in the 20s at nite and the snow is hard to get out and walk on.
Avatar m tn But she losses hair like you wouldnt belive I swear you could weave a rug with her hair loss each week. she is not going bald she has plenty hair lol she has a healthy diet, plenty of water to drink she is an inside dog,outside to potty. She hs quivering of legs when jsut sitting heck it might be nervous energy waiting for some one to throw the ball(which is her life) whatever the case is is htere any supplemnt that we can give her to keep her from lossing so much hair??
612876 tn?1355518095 All of the above come in grain-free options and that would be best for hypothyroid and weight loss, and for skin issues. Feed at least 1/2 to 2/3 of the diet as canned food and the remainder as dry.
Avatar f tn To incorporate eercise that burns 500 cals/day plus cutting back on 500 cals/day (if there's room in your diet to scale back that much), that's 1,000/day and a 2 lb weight loss per week. But even at a normal healthy weight, exercise is still so necessary to keep us moving and to stave off some of the ill effects of our disease, our medications, and aging.
579258 tn?1250652943 I really think it has been as integral to my first month of weight loss as the diet and exercise have been. Every morning I wake up thinking about what I'm going to weigh because I have to put it on my weight tracker and it's going to be staring me in the face every time I get on my computer. It's great motivation to skip the snack and make the extra trip to the gym during the week.
Avatar m tn My sugar is still great but no more weight loss. I thought this was going to be my answer to weight loss prayers. I did have a lot of nausea and loss of appetite so I guess that had a lot to do with it. I have contacted the company but haven't gotten a reply. Let me know how you do.
Avatar f tn The best diet for a diabetic dog a no-grain, very low to no carbohydrate diet. The hills prescription diet you have listed is also good and it would probably be OK for your other dogs as long as they don't require their own prescription diets for other issues. Please take him to the vet ASAP to get him on appropriate treatment and to try to prevent comorbidities such as cataracts.
Avatar f tn Had a bad week with eating, Someone left Sam's food down which is a weight loss food because he is over weight and she ate all of it. Throw it up the next day (Wednesday) and hasn't wanted much since then. I gotten a little broth down her everyday but I know she needs more. Also she is drinking okay. Today I noticed there is blood in her stool, I'm sure not a good sign. Daughter will be calling the vet for advice.
Avatar n tn lol Feels kind of strange eating until I am about to puke and it's OK! I'm ready to start the VLCD diet tomorrow, ready for the weight loss to kick in. I haven't started my water consumption yet. That was one thing I was wondering about. I wasn't sure if that was supposed to happen during the load days or wait until the calories dropped but I've started drinking water today. Maybe as upinak said, it will help with the headaches. I hope!
Avatar f tn After visit to specialist and ultrasound of kidney was told his kidneys look like that of a five year old dog. Never will know how this occurred, genetic issue?Recommendation is low protein diet. Lots lots of water. Greatest concern is dehydration. So if he gets sick, secondary sickness, loss of appetite, lack of weight gain. At the moment all the vets have given me is that we can chart his progress to see how illness is progressing. He is Asymptomatic at the moment.
Avatar n tn I need to lose weight also, and I have lost around 8 lbs without a special diet. Eat healthy, see what agrees with you, eat when hungry, graze instead of big meals, when not hungry eat a little of whatever is nutrient rich. One GOOD side is we often lose weight anyway.
