Just like with human beings, as dogs gets older their metabolism slow down. With extra weight, health risks increase; for example heart problems, diabetes issues, plus general quality of living tends to erode when your dog is overweight.
There are many ways to address this situation. One way is to cut back on your dog's food. However, this is not a preferred solution because you're basically depriving you r dog the enjoyment of its meals. Unlike human beings, that can voluntarily choose to deal with hunger pangs when they're on a diet, your dog cannot do so.
