I went for my Vet Check in Valley Vets in Ystrad Mynach, I really love it there, the staff are amazing and always fuss me, they take care of me really well and they are so friendly. I saw Stephanie Pelaez-Heras besides being a vet she is the weight specialist, she runs a fat club for overweight pets and guess what… I was told that I need to be put on a diet! Yes I am too fat! I have to be 9kg but I am over 12kg and I have been given diet food, I’m not allowed any treats at all except for carrots to chew on and veggies! I was looking a little embarrassed when I sat on the scales to be weighed, I’ve been on a diet for a while to try and control my weight but this time it’s more serious, I don’t want to get sick, it’s going to be my new year’s resolution to get to my goal weight!
I’m on the Vet Prescription Diet™ Canine r/d™ with Chicken - Key benefits are: Scientifically proven to reduce body fat by at least 22% in 8 weeks, Supplemented with L-carnitine and lysine to burn fat and preserve muscle, High in dietary fiber to help reduce hunger and discourage begging and it has a New great taste … apparently! I’m going to need lots of encouragement from everyone but I’m going to try my hardest! Mum is going to be off work for a while for her Christmas break so she is going to take me on one short walk (around the village) and one long walk (like my usual Saturday 2 hour walk in the woodlands) a day to try and get skinny! Mum says I’m only allowed to have a turkey dinner with veggies for Christmas but that is the only time I am allowed any “people food” apart from my kibbles, which have also been cut back! So roll on Christmas day! Forget Santa Paws I’m excited for the food!!
