My sphynx Dill is a year and a half old. At our vet appointment today he weighed 12.9 pounds and the vet told me he’s overweight. About 4 months ago I switched him onto Hill’s i/d prescription formula dry & wet food per my vets suggestion. Prior to this, he had chromic diarhhea, where I had tried 4 quality grain free foods and nothing was helping. (Routine stool samples were taken for months during this time). After switching to Hill’s. Dill has not diarrhea which has been amazing!!! However, now I am questioning if its the Hill’s food that causing him to gain weight. I dont believe I am over feeding. He gets 1/8 cup 4 times a day plus a large soup spoon full of wet food in the morning. I have read so many pros and cons of grain vs. grain free, vet suggestions vs. breeder suggestions, and I just feel so overwhelmed with information. I want to do whats best for Dill but I just dont know where to start with this weightloss.
