Max, my pug, went to the vet today for his semi annual checkup and shots. They called me wanting to check his thyroid because he weighs 28 pounds, an 8 pound weight gain since we got him a year ago. I confessed we'd been giving him people food, and got fussed at. If he hasn't lost 3 pounds in 6 months, we are going to be in trouble. Do you over indulge your pets?
