Hi Lisa,

My dogs are neutered and as long as I keep them on a strict diet and make sure they get exercise they keep the weight off. There really are a lot of good reasons to have your dog neutered. I think I would talk to your vet if I were you and voice your concerns. They may recommend a weight maintenance food, I use Purina Pro Plan Weight Maintenance but there are others out there and of course the vet diets that you can only buy at the vet's office.
