2. **Adjust Diet and Nutrition:** Consult with your veterinarian to ensure your dog’s diet is appropriate for their age, breed, size, and activity level. Consider switching to high-quality, nutritionally balanced dog food and adjust portion sizes as recommended by your vet to maintain a healthy weight.

3. **Monitor Food Intake:** Keep track of your dog’s food intake to ensure they are eating enough. If your dog is a picky eater or has a reduced appetite, consider offering smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day or adding palatable toppings such as broth or a small amount of lean meat (after consulting with your vet).

4. **Encourage Regular Exercise:** Provide opportunities for regular exercise and physical activity tailored to your dog’s abilities. Play interactive games, go for walks, or engage in activities like agility training or swimming, depending on your dog’s preferences and fitness level. Regular exercise not only helps maintain weight but also promotes overall health and well-being.

5. **Address Stress and Anxiety:** Stress or anxiety can affect a dog’s appetite and overall health. Ensure your dog has a comfortable and safe environment, adequate mental stimulation, and opportunities for socialization and play. If your dog shows signs of anxiety or stress, such as decreased appetite or restlessness, consult with a veterinarian or animal behaviorist for guidance and support.

By addressing these factors and working closely with your veterinarian, you can help your dog maintain a healthy weight and overall well-being.
