Fritz is the first participant enrolled in the Halo Healthy Weight Challenge on THE EXPERT VET of the RADIO PET LADY NETWORK. All participants in the challenge will be eating the Halo Healthy Weight natural dog food. The “dog food review” for this Halo healthy holistic food is a “high five paw” from my co-host Tracie Hotchner’s own Scooby Doo, who has maintained his weight on their Healthy Weight Turkey & Duck Recipe.

Using the Halo diet plan our target for Fritz was to lose between 0.5 and 1 pound each week (1-2% of his body weight) — so he is right on track with 0.8 pounds of weight loss during week 1! Way to go Fritz!!

This week, Fritz’s owner Holly mentioned he loves the added extra veggies and goes particularly crazy for his zucchini. Check out Fritz’s cute video below.

Weekly weight loss tip: Dogs can sometimes feel ravenously hungry while dieting. You can train a dog to lose weight by incorporating low calorie, filling healthy snacks — like fresh veggies! Adding zucchini is a great way to add some extra stomach fill and fiber for only 20 calories per cup. If your dog has a bit to lose, cut the high calorie treats and consider some lightly boiled zucchini!
