 Pug Weight Loss

I have woofed about the need to loose my extra pug weight, my struggles along the way, and the victory I have achieved.

Recently my humom/typist and I had the opportunity to meet up on set with Royal Canin Canada to discuss on camera what I call my “weight loss journey”.

It was a day of lights, cameras, sound checks and yes, even make up!

Those of you who know me, know that I am a pug that enjoys the spot light, whether it’s woofing on Twitter, posting on my Facebook, sharing my pics on Instagram, or posting here on my blog.


But on this day, I had to give my humom some encouragement as she sat with me in front of the cameras to interpret my weight loss journey to those that don’t speak “pug”.

We talked about my weight gain and when we started to notice it. My humom even told everyone how much I weighed at my heaviest, 14.4 kg, shocking I know!

More importantly, we discussed how with the encouragement of my vet, the determination of my humom, and Royal Canin’s Satiety Support, I returned to a healthy weight.

The message we wanted to leave with pet parents who may be dealing with a pet that has a weight issue is we feel a simple one, and at one point during filming, an emotional one for my humom:

“We all want what’s best for our pets”

“We want a happy, healthy pet that will be in our lives for a very long time”

I would like to thank everyone on set that day for being so very kind. They made such a fuss over me. More importantly, I want to thank them for helping my humom feel comfortable and get past her stage fright, because unlike me, is not used to the spot light 😉


Disclosure: All opinions about Edie, her weight loss journey and how it affected Edie’s health are my own personal experience. Edie has been on Royal Canin products since she was a puppy and continues to be on Royal Canin Satiety Support (dry and wet). Edie is Ambassador to Royal Canin Canada, but this in no way influences my opinions of the product. Edie has and is always monitored by her veterinarian to ensure her health, her healthy weight loss and her maintenance. Results may vary in each pet.

  1. Wow, that’s awesome! We just got a 12 week old puppy and the breeder suggested Royal Canin, so that’s what we bought. We’re new to the world of puppies, so I’ll be following with interest – of course, we want the best for our little Charlie!! *LOVE*
