"Posted in honor of Woody, our red-headed stepchild lab mix! One day our vet said, "Your dog is fat!" This is the "diet" she prescribed for Woody, and it worked!!! Woody safely and gradually lost 18 lbs over about a year. The best part is that he thought he was getting "people food" every day - he never even knew he was on a diet!"

"Our dogs like this "diet" also... but our vet has suggested we use the "no salt added" green beans b/c the dogs really do not need all that extra sodium in their diets. I usually do not add much of the liquid to their food since it tends to make it soggy, and one of our Boxers is very picky about the texture of her food. They do get excited when they see us opening up a can however... they think it's really something special!"
"my dog has lost 15 pounds on this diet...it really works. i buy the large bag of frozen beans, cook them all at once and store them in a ziplock in the fridge. dogs love it because it fills them up....mine did not even realize he was dieting....he has sooo much more energy now!!"
"What a Brilliant tip!! I don't even have a dog anymore--but was so impressed with this tip that I'd stopped and emailed it to a lot of people in my address book before resuming here to give it a 5-star rating! Many dogs will be thinner and healthier for your having shared this great tip, and others will certainly be sharing it with other people, too, so dog dieting success will be spread far and wide as a result of having posted this!"
"This is great. My dogs love green beans. Who would of known? They think they are getting a treat. Thanks."
"Never heard of this combo before but it certainly is worth a try. Sounds healthy and easy."
