If your clients are feeling guilty about cutting back their overweight pet’s rations, suggest switching to smaller bowls. A smaller bowl will look more full and make you feel better about the new amounts, and less likely to add “just a little bit more” out of pity. Learned this personally dealing with my very overweight beagle.
To illustrate: the above bowls contain the exact same amount of food, but the top bowl, which is larger, looks a bit scant, whereas the bottom bowl appears to be overflowing.
