I would believe that switching your dog to raw will begin the weight loss since your dog will no longer be getting all the filler food that kibble has. I give my dogs 2% of their body weight and I feed them a straight RMB diet, no veggies or fruit. Oxford, my older dog, used to be a little chubby before we switched to raw and now she's at a great weight. Our vet even complimented us on how low her weight it. Just check in a few weeks to see if your dog has lost any weight and of course incorporating some longer walks will help out too. We go on four 10 mins walks a day (it would be longer, but Oxford has HD) and it has definately helped keep their weight at a healthy level. Good luck! keep us informed!
