Yes, my new vet ( my usual vet has just delivered a baby and is resting at home for now) has suggested to pu me on a diet plan to lose weight!
Guess what? I'm only allowed one and a quarter cup of dry food daily! Besides, no treats! "NO TREATS???" oh, this is not gonna work for me!
I've been in super bad mood! I just can't believe going on diet is so difficult. And worse of all, I eat so fast every time when mommy gives me the food and I threw out after I ate last night and this morning. Mommy was so worry. SHe call the vet to ask if she has to 'replenish' the food for me since I vomitted it all! Guess what, the vet said "no for now... Let's observe Milo again tonight. You'll have to bring him in tomorrow if he still throw out after eating".
Sign... I really wish I lose weight soon! I really can't take this diet plan of haveing 1 and 1/4 cups of food for long!
Sometimes, I wonder how can my pal, Redford, take it when he was required to go on diet too!

jeez, you can't be that big that you have to go on a diet? Take your time eating and savour it!
I only get a scant cup of my food every day...1 1/4 cup sounds like a lot to me...
Perhaps your mommy can give your food in divided amounts to spread it out during the day,and to use some of it as 'treats (Hand-fed), too.
Are you getting a new food? That may be why you are having some issues.
I was told to loose weight, too, but the vet just told growlmy to reduce the amount I was already eating to a lesser amount, that way there was no trouble with my digestion.
Best wishes and hope your tummy feels better,soon!
Agree with MrJack, if your mom has sum time to hand feed you that will help slow you down which might be helpful. Labby licks and luv to you!
Can you have some carrotts as snacks....they are yummy and hardly no calories....we eat those instead of "treats" around here because we all need to loose weight! Tell your momma to ask the vet about it. Good luck!
Woof Woof, Molly
Milo- Mazy eats several times a day and always has...The servings are very small. She never throws up her food. Her weight is perfect. If we gave Mazy a cup of food at one time she would throw up too. You are overly hungry when you finally get to eat. What about 1/4 c. for 3 meals and use the rest for treats through out the day???? Carrots are wonderful treats. Mazy also like apple but it is tiny bites. We use some of Mazy kibbles for the training sessions with her Pet stairs. Good luck.... We will pray for you little fella.
Thanks pals for your good advice!
Mommy is now trying to feed me twice (5/8 cup each time). I'm ok after last feeding.
Thanks Petey... I may not be very big, but I'm supposed to be a small size JRT and should weigh around 12~14 lbs. But I'm almost 20lbs!
Yup, MJF is right... I'm also getting a new food at the same time. It's a precription diet for allergy (as both me and Maru have developed signs of allergy).
Mommy think Pepper's idea may be possible! My non-fur brother would love to do the 'hand-feed' job!
Healthy snack, like carrot and small amount over the day... Molly & Mazy have great ideas! In that way, I'll have food 'very often'! You know, my math is not exactly very good, but 'very often' sounds good to me!
Dude, I feel for you.
I can't have any treats either, just carrots, green beans and
other veggies if I'll eat 'em. Plus, I only get ONE LOUSY CUP
of dog food a day. That's when mom mixes in the veggies. She
feels bad for me, but it's for my own good...that's what she
keeps telling me, but I don't believe it for a minute!!!!
Going on a diet is HARD!!!
What I suggest about the throwing up thing...since you can
only have 1 1/4 cup a day, divide that up and eat half of
that in the morning, then the other half at dinnertime. I
like carrots, so maybe during the day, you can have as many
as you like, also, mix in some canned green beans in your
kibble with a little of the liquid from the can. Just try
not to eat so fast. I think that's what's causing you to
That's how I've been eating since I HAD to go on this
HORRIBLE DIET!! (Actually, mom has been giving us all green beans and carrots.)
The only time I'm in heaven, well somewhat, is when I get
my pills. She hides them in a little piece of lunch meat or
something really delicious. I wish she'd put those pills
in 4 slices of lunch meat!! That would be WAY better!!
Good luck, Milo. Maybe one day soon well look like models
with new slim bodies!!
Good luck, Milo... wish I could sneak you some snacks! ;o)
