If you take your dog to the vet and they are overweight, what does the vet tell you to do?
Do they say they have some skinny tea that celebrity dogs recommend? Do they say you should put butter in their food in the morning and put them on keto?
Of course not. They say to exercise them and to feed them less (and less treats and junk food if they're having it). That's it.
Yes, humans are more complicated emotionally than dogs and we don't rely on someone else to feed us. Too bad though, because losing weight would be A LOT easier!
