Biggest Loser?


Ozzie has been complaining his collar is a little tight of late so we decided to get serious about dieting. One of the founders of the MidAtlantic Bulldog Rescue recommended a diet dog food that she used on a rescue who was very chunky. They had received a female bullie who was 90 pounds and resembled a seal when she walked or at least attempted to! She lost 15 pounds on this food so with that I thought lets give it a shot! It is Purina Veterinary Diets OM formula. ( the om is for overweight management if you didn't guess! ) Our vet didn't carry it so they ordered it special for the Oz! We are feeding him 3/4 of a cup twice a day. At night I mix his portion with steamed green beans to bulk it up a little. It doesn't seem like much but something has got to give. My only reservation about the food is that it has wheat in it, a product I have avoided so far since it is the culprit of many skin allergies in bulldogs. Honestly I am not sure if Ozzie is liking his new food. He stares at me as if to say "What's this stuff?!" when I put it in his bowl. Hopefully I won't weaken and give him too many treats! Well it's only week one so let's see how it goes.

  1. Good luck to Ozzie. It's hard to lose weight, or so my moms say. I keep slim by being a picky eater. They should try being a little choosier, I think.
