Thread: Your Dogs Weight.

    I love my dog, and I do not know how to help her. She has been over weight for quite some time now, and I walk her a lot and only feed her the amount of dog food the vet told us we should feed her.How do I help my over weight dog?

    Chloes underweight but no one can really tell me by how much purely because of her x breeds (GSD and kelpie)

    She's 23 kgs atm (put on 3 kgs since we've had her YAY!) but you can still see her spine which i've been told is the sign she's too small by the vet

    My cat (off topic) is 500grams overweight today.. actually she got really fat after the death of her companion and this year we've (I) have been monitoring how much she eats etc, so the vet said the 500grams wasn't too bad but it'd be best to get rid of it long term.. Sorry Lok, still on the diet old girl lol

    Jethro is underweight (not by much, but I can tell) he eats really well and a lot but I can't seem to keep the weight on him. Millie is a little overweight but I prefer her that way because of her age. You can't tell but she is a little barrel chested. Both my cats are the perfect weight. Don't know exactly how much any of them weigh but go off eye.

    Troopa's still a pup so his size is constantly increasing at the moment. At 3 months he weighed in at 15.1kg.
    The average for his gender and age at 3 months is 14.2kg so he's pretty close

    Bailey weighs in at 22kg - cannot see her ribs but can feel them.

    Mully weighs in at 25kg atm - probably has something to do with all that milk! (normally 20kg)

    Tyson weighs in at 19kg atm - he is underweight (can see his spine clearly and ribs) and is currently on puppy food (vets suggestion). Vet wants to put some weight on before starting testing to work out what the problem is (most likely cancer )

    My kelpie weighs 20 kilo, she is as fit as a fiddle, and our staffy weighs 30. But he is a tall staffy, near the biggest I've ever seen. We do nbeed to cut his food back. He is over ten years old.
    Ask a Border Collie to jump and it'd say, "how high?", ask a Kelpie and he'll ask, "why?"

    Bella weighs 2.8kgs and we think she might be about done growing (she's tiny - such a shorty!)

    Charlie weighs about 5kgs and looks good for his height. As both ours are cross breeds, we've kind of only got a rough idea of how big they'll be when they "grow up".

    Going to the vet on Saturday to have their stitches out, so we'll have another weigh in

    well Myf, all my Shepherd's have always been a little on the lean side. To most average pet-owners they would have seemed 'thin' but to me and my requirments/knowledge/education etc they were all sitting at a perfect healthy weight.

    I do know that with my Newfie puppy I must keep her on the leaner side of perfect weight ratio without fail for at least the first 12 months, if not 24 months.
