Yes, we had his thyroid tested and seems to be normal, he is just a big boy who has never been very active..our other boy is very active and has no weight issues at all..so, I think I will cut back on his regular food and substitute green beans or something similar that he will like, I know it will be a long process but we're up for it..thanks for all you guys help!

Don't worry about "filling him up." I wouldn't bother with green beens. Years ago my golden was overweight simply because I was over feeding. I just fed less until she was at the right weight. Do it gradually. Once your dog gets to the right weight feed a little more. Watch the weight to make sure he is maintaining. He'll get use to less food.

You can feed your dog smaller portions with green beans or canned pumpkin to help him feel full, or you can try a grain free product like Petcurean's NOW FRESH Senior/Weight Management which I have found works wonders with my little JRT. He is now in perfect weight with nice thick coat and lots of energy. Don't let the 'Senior' designation worry you, it's good for both Seniors and also dogs that need to lose weight.

I agree. Ky was putting on weight which is terrible for her bad back. I fed her normal food just 1/4 C per meal less of it and I add steamed carrots or green beans. Cut out all store bought treats.(I bake them some healthy treats) At the end of summer she was 118, last week at vets she was 105=13 lbs lost and she hasn't even noticed the missing kibble.

Hey Bentleys Mom..any recipes you'd like to share for homeade healthy treats? today was the first full day on his new diet and he loved the green beans, and for a treat I gave him a few pieces of pineapple tidbits..he loves those too!! I have to be strong and get his weight down, and not give in to those sweet brown eyes!
