Is your dog overweight? Finding out and learning what to do about it is an important part of being a pet parent. It’s our job to keep our fur kids healthy, and that includes helping them maintain a healthy weight since this adds to quality of life and life expectancy.

How do you know if your dog is at their healthy weight? Start by checking out this video from Dr. Ashley Gallagher:

Did you watch it? If so you might have been surprised or even shocked to learn that more than 50% of pets are overweight…I certainly didn’t know that!

Dr. Ashley also mentioned this Healthy Pet Weight Tool where you can go to check your dog’s weight online. Be sure to go give that a try.

And the big takeaway from the video is to talk to your dog’s veterinarian for professional medical advice on whether your pet is overweight. It’s important to their overall health and wellness. If your vet says your dog needs to lose some weight, they will tell you the steps you need to take, including diet and exercise.

They may also recommend a special weight loss food like Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight. With a breakthrough blend of natural ingredients, prebiotic fibers for gentle digestion and 100% precisely balanced nutrition, 70% of cats and dogs who used Science Diet Perfect Weight lost weight within 10 weeks.

Dog-Gone Good Cuisine: Recipes for You AND Your Dog (Book Review)

dog-gone good cuisine

If you’ve ever thought about cooking a meal to share with your pooch but didn’t know where to start, or worry about what foods are healthy, then you’ll want to check out this new cookbook hitting the store shelves (and Amazon) this week! In Dog-Gone Good Cuisine certified nutritionist and chef Gayle Pruitt demonstrates how to cook healthy and delicious dishes for dogs and humans alike. She’s included over 100 corn, sugar, soy, and gluten free recipes, for mouthwatering meals you can make for your family AND fur kids, too!

This is NOT a cookbook of how to make plain-old dog food or your typical dog treats. This is food that will make your mouth water! Since receiving our review copy and checking it out, some of the recipes I’ve bookmarked already include:

  • Minty Fruit Roll-Ups
  • Roasted Root Vegetables
  • Salmon Florentine
  • Pears with Raspberry Sauce
  • Cream of Cinderella Pumpkin Soup

How fun would it be to throw a dinner party for your favorite furry pals and their humans at the same time!?! I love that this book not only includes loads of great recipes, but also that the author shares info on cooking techniques, a list of herbs and spices that are safe for dogs, and other helpful tips and resources. There’s also a section on canine-only raw food and making your own jerky. That caught my eye because of all the concerns over the safety of some of the commercially produced pet jerky. What a great way to save money and feel good about what you’re giving your dog by making it yourself! You’ll also find several special juicing recipes for different health conditions.

Dog-Gone Good Cuisine is available in bookstores and at in both paperback and Kindle editions.
