He has put on some weight. From treats. So we are all trying to reduce him down something like 3 pounds. The vet said to give him two or three baby carrots instead of his regular treats in an effort to reduce him but still giving him something to eat. Believe me we didn't know dogs would even eat carrots but he does and appears to like them as much as anything else. He is fine and still does get a regular treat usually after he goes out and comes back in first thing in the morning.
