Hiya! Our 4 year old Husky called Roxanne is being a little pickle. For the last 2 days, she has completely refused to eat her food. She just looks at the bowl, looks up at me and then walks off! She has lost a small amount of weight but is still a healthy weight. The only other times she has ever gone off her food is when she is coming into season. She only just came out of season last month, so surely this can't be the reason? Does anyone have any tips or advice, will be making a Vet's appointment on Thursday if things haven't changed.
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!
