Treating Obesity in Labrador Retrievers 

Switch to specially formulated weight management dog food. Gradually reduce food portions and treats.


Exercise is key. Take brisk walks and play fetch daily. Swimming and hiding toys burns extra calories. 


Have your vet examine your Lab for any underlying issues contributing to excess weight. Get specific diet advice accounting for age


Use praise, play time and low-calorie treats to motivate your Lab during the weight loss process. Keep sessions positive and consistent.


Once goal weight is reached, maintain healthy habits. Weigh monthly and keep vet appointments. 


With commitment to diet and lifestyle changes, Labrador Retrievers can successfully slim down, improving energy, mobility and overall health.  


Losing excess weight can add years to a Lab's life. And you'll have more time to share with a healthy, happy and active best friend!
