3) Small Meals, More Often

One of the most common weight loss tips humans receive is to eat between 5-6 small meals each day to help increase the body's metabolism.  While most pet parents' schedules do not allow for this number of feedings, the principle remains the same.  Many dogs and cats are fed once per day.

This causes the metabolism to slow down, store food as fat, and preserve energy.  Divide your pet's food into two portions and feed one in the morning and one in the evening.  It' likely that your pet will have more energy for walks, playtime, and other calorie burning activities.  You may also notice a reduction in unwanted behaviors such as begging and food stealing.
