17 month old Labrador with dysplasia and overweight. Feeding advice!

22nd Dec 2014
Michelle Tisdall

My male Labrador is 17 months old and had surgery on his elbows for dysplasia aged 7 months. Been told not to over walk him but he's gaining weight. Was neutered two months ago. Want to do right by him. Needs a weight control /loss food that can support his joints too if possible. Help please. Xx

There is no easy answer to weight control for dogs like this. This weight control diet is perfectly good enough for his joints. As far as controlling his weight is concerned, the diet will not do that by itself. You will have to restrict the amount you give. If you feed him the correct amount, he will be the correct weight. If you give too much, he will eat it very happily, but be too fat. If you give him not enough food he will be too thin. Therefore you should forget all the feeding guides provided with the food and just judge it sensibly on your dog. If he is putting on weight, you are giving too much food, so reduce it. It really is as simple as that. You can certainly end up with a dog of perfect weight on the food you give, but he will always be hungry. But then that is part of being a neutered labrador, so you will have to accept that, or just let him get fat. Many people do, because they are not up for the battle of restricting the food to keep their dog's weight down.

The only other thing to add would be that it seems that the high protein, cereal-free diets seem to keep dogs more satisfied and so less greedy. You can restrict the amount you give while not leaving them feeling quite so hungry. These diets are more expensive, but that is how it often works. Orijen is the classic example of such a diet, but there are lots of copy-type brands now - the "grain-free" diets in American parlance. Personally I would ideally choose Orijen dog food.
