    My French Bulldog, Wilbur, is 2.5” taller than standard. He’s just turned 9. He currently weighs 34 lbs, is very energetic, healthy, but does seem to me to have gained at least 2 pounds since going on royal canin hydrolized protein (regular, not Frenchie or low cal). I feed him about a cup+ per day, I walk him for two 40 min walks per day, plus other short walks. When I can I take him to a place where he can run. Dog parks make him very anxious, so I don’t do that. I don’t give him extra treats. I think it’s the food that’s caused the weight gain. He went on the hydrolized protein at vet recommendation ‘cause he was having anal gland problems. Worked for a year, not working any more. What do you recommend?

      Hi Judy, it sounds like you are doing everything possible from an exercise perspective, so by process of elimination, it may be the food.

      You could consider a homemade diet of lean meat, vegetables, and some rice. This is a lean diet that also helps with allergies. You could also consider trialing Wilbur on a smaller portion size to see how he goes. Just like with humans, weight loss/gain is largely hereditary, so it really comes down to discipline and trial and error to find the best approach.
