What a beautiful pup! You have come to a family of support like no other that I have seen. They will help point you in the right direction and give you endless suggestions on this journey. Fresh, frozen, and canned fruits and veggies are great for dogs. I had a lab that just loved carrot sticks as treats. Green beans, apples are also good and a lot of larger dogs love them. You can cut back on treats and foods by integrating them into his diet without making him feel neglected. Cats cannot lose weight quickly because of their metabolism. Dogs are more hearty than cats and although I wouldn't try to do too much too quickly, you can definitely start with healthy foods that will not compromise his strength or immune system.  He is handsome, cannot wait to see pictures!

Wonderful pics!

As far as the harness- you should discuss with your vet.  Since a harness will cross the incision on a front amp some vets say not to use it right away.  If his incision is wrapped it would probably be ok, or you can put a tee shirt on to protect the incision.  Again- discuss with the surgeon.

I don't know if they will recommend or not but a million years ago we used to use this gadget to help post surgical pups that were admitted to help balance them so that they could go out to do their business.

What we had did not allow for the collar, you just slipped it underneath and held it by the handles. Ask others here, and your vet, it was an often used item that was really handy to have. 

That's a big boo boo sadHe will be relieved to be rid of it.  Wishing you good thoughts and peace.
