weight control

We have a Cavalier King Charles Spanial that was a rescue dog...she is 17 lbs now and we only feed her one cup of dry dog food and and 2 -3 doggy snacks a day plus a few  snacks of a plain rice cake. She hasn't been getting a lot of exercises either.

I am not sure what else to do to really get her weight down.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have put her on a diet called Hill's weight loss food through my vets office.

Thanks, meg
