Hi Melissa, yes I am here too, Hektor is a Big Boy who has a tendency to get bigger at the drop of a hat. He has allergies which means he is on a restricted diet, his favourite titbit is cucumber and as it is mostly water he can eat almost an unlimited amount, the other thing many Pugs love are all sorts of fruit, but keep that to a minimum other wise the main stay of the dieting Pug is raw carrot. i would definitely go along with Tania though and just little walks until she loses the weight and lots of love and encouragement , She deserves it.

Hi Melissa, I see you have been through the mill with Flossy, I personally don't think you should get too concerned if she is overweight, so long as she is not huge.

Nearly all the pugs on this forum are overweight, mine is!

Try to get her to take small walks slowly and build from there, try not to feed her between meals. jeez did I just say that? I am the worst for doing it!

Believe it or not pugs love to go walks, some go long distances, some don't..

Reading her history that you gave us, I think loads of love, strokes and kisses is the best things you can do to make her happy.

Hope this helps.

Tania

Does anyone know of any low calories pug friendly snacks. Lily was getting apple slices a d baby carrots but the vet said that those are both high in natural sugar and could lead to doggy diabetes :(

Comment by Amanda Perez on June 26, 2012 at 4:53pm

Lily was given to me and my mother helps take care of her because dialysis can sometimes wear me out. Poor mom is legally blind and she got the measurements wrong and was feeding her a cup extra of food every day. Poor baby went to the vet and she is 5 pounds overweight :( We switched her to wet food because it is mostly water the vet said and cut her snacks and she lost a pound but we still have a way to go. Wish us luck!

I am back boasting, Hektor is now 11.35Kilos. Going down slowly but steadily. Cannot find that layer of fat he used to have. Now I need to go on his diet.

Comment by The Wee Woman on May 5, 2012 at 10:48am

Hektor is now 11.45 Kilos, hooray. I was so sure he had put on weight. Helena.

The Tiger Killer

Well I thought I knew most of what was to know about Mr Pug, or indeed Mrs Pug. The other day walking the streets with a very tired and fed up Pug known to you all as Hektor, I popped into our mountaineering shop to have a look round, it is the only shop here who will let him in. I bought a pair of sandals when I was in and the young lady serving who I had met before was making a great fuss of him. She said about her friend having a Pug and how wonderful she was and we got talking as we Pug…See More

Nail cutting trouble

Hi everyone,I am facing a constant struggle when it comes to cutting Tanks nails. They grow so fast that if I don't cut them at least once a week they become painfully long and sharp and I end up scratched all over when Tank gets excited and playful.I've been bringing him to the vet for nail clipping every week so far but it costs me $11.00 per time. I've tried putting him on my washing machine (this is where I put him when I dry him off after showers, clean his folds, brush him etc.. as he…See More
