🛑Help🛑 I know I already posted something on this but I just went to the vet to weight him. so my dog is 23/24 inches to the shoulders and he weights a whopping 74 pounds he doesn’t look that fat but I’m not sure. Would it be fine to give him a cup less food? 1/2 less in the morning and 1/2 less at night?
I have found going to the dog park and taking her swimming to be good ways of getting her energy out. But I'm only 16 and cant drive so i only get the opportunity to take her places once or twice a week, and thats not enough for her, she needs to get her energy out every day. The heat has been in the 80's and 90's and the streets are way to hot to walk her on, I don't know what else to do the get this energy out, she acts terrible when she cant go out and starts stealing things and barking and whining. what can I do to get her to calm down?
We adopted our adorable but super overweight, 7-year-old Mayo 3.5 months ago. She was at a staggering 35 kg (77 lb) at the time, and we were told that wasn't even her heaviest -- the adoption agency saw a 42.8 kg (94 lb) in an old vet record! We put her on a sensible diet (grain-free; treats are rationed and zero table scraps) after and walked her daily. She was eating less but her energy level went up; her weight steadily dropped. Even people at the dog park were commenting on her obvious weight loss. We went back to the vet last week and the vet thinks she's finally reached her healthy size, at 28 kg (61.6 lb)! She'll always have the loose skin around her neck and chest area from being so fat for so long, but we're very proud of what we've all achieved. This was Mayo at 35 kg (77 lb) on her first day home 3.5 months ago: This is Mayo at ~28 kg (61.6 lb) today, at the beach! Here's to a happy and long life, healthy-weight Mayo!
