My dog is 10kg overweight and I am getting desperate. I just can't decide what to feed him so I have been switching raw to burns to Eden to wet food and now he has gained another kg. he is walked an hour a day and it is not a health problem he has been to the vets, that caused his overweight but overfeeding when in parents care. He has no other treats but half a carrot after a walk.

I am open to any suggestions on what to feed him I am at a loss? I tried him on prescription diet but he got really sick with hives, hot spots and raw armpits.

Please help me, I'm desperate and the vet just recommends hills so they are no help to me
