It is not easy to restrict Fin’s diet, because there are so few things he can eat, Burn’s Fish and Rice being one of them.  This, coupled with the fact that Fin is on steroids long term for health reasons means he had put on an awful lot of weight.  I wrote an article recently on overfeeding your dog, and whilst doing that,  had a “light bulb moment”.  Something just clicked.  I was feeding on demand, pretty much 24/7 but I realised this was giving the dogs as much as they wanted, but this was more than they needed. I revised my feeding regime to once a day, and am delighted to report that Fin has lost 2 kg.  He has a long way to go but it’s a start.
