You also might want to check out the recent thread about adding green beans to Homer's diet. They are high in fiber and high-fiber foods make the dog feel full. Since they are low in fat/calories, they won't add any additional weight. I am sure there are other high fiber foods you could add but my mind is blank at the moment. Didn't click on link in Sephly's post so not sure if that is a website for an elevated bowl -- other BW members have used those with success.
