California Gold Small Dog Pet Food is a perfect choice for small breed weight loss. For one, it is a limited ingredient dog food--only five ingredients--which means that if there is any ingredient that proves to be a problem be it allergenic or concerning diet it will be easier to find the ingredient with the problem.
One can easily see in our formulas that four of the five ingredients are veggies and fruits; these have a minimum amount of carbohydrates, giving you a great head start on eliminating fats and reducing weight in your small dog.
The fifth ingredient, being the grain--rice or oats, are pure grains; not processed or enriched. Nothing has been added. Oats are the number one grain with the least amount of carbohydrates.
Next, the amount you feed your small dog is the critical step in achieving weight loss with the dog food. That is why we have a food/diet chart on each label of each bag of our formulas.
The chart shows the different weights of your dog along with exact portion to be fed. This way as you go along reducing the weight, you can always feed the correct portion at the time. If at any time you feel the weight is under the normal, you can increase the portion until you get the right weight again.
The second most critical element in the small breed weight loss dog food is to observe if you are giving your dog treats and what kind of treats they are. While observing weight loss it is best not to give any treats. If this is a difficult proposition, then small carrot sticks, small apple pieces are a good substitute for the carb-intense treats out there in the market place.

Another sure-fire way to help with a healthy weight loss is exercise. Make sure your dog is taken for a walk every day and play with your pup every day. When they want to run around in the house don't necessarily discourage this, they need it. Do be careful of over-exercising, especially in the heat. Exercise in the heat is very dangerous. Some small breeds have sensitive respiratory organs. If your dog is panting heavily, stop the exercise and make sure water is available. Proper smal breed weight is essential, please do not overlook exercise in order to avoid an overweight dog.
