DOES YOUR DOG NEED TO DIET?

An overweight dog has no one to blame for his condition but his loving owner. Occasionally the excess weight is caused by a glandular problem, such as a thyroid condition, but this is relatively rare. If your dog is overweight, he is simply taking in more food than he needs.
