Barking Wednesday ~ Is Your Dog Fat?

This week on Barking Wednesday I wanted to share a useful tool I found online at PetMD. PetMD has a weight calculator for dogs.  In the form you insert your dog's breed - age - weight. The calculator will tell you if your dog is overweight and also give you the recommend calories intake for your dog.

The reason I was searching for info on dogs weight is that Kingers needs to loss weight He is 11.5 years old with bad hind legs. He has arthritis  in both hind legs causing many issues. He is having trouble standing and sitting.  I am positive losing a few pounds will make it easier for him to move around.

PetMD Weight Calculator  is so easy to use. Since Kingers is overweight the weight calculator also tells me how many calories he needs to lose weight. Making it easy for me to make positive changes in his diet.

  1. Oh this is really interesting! I've seen dogs before and thought, 'that dog is over weight'. This is a good resource to have, thanks for sharing.

  2. My dog is too skinny. But he's a very energetic german shepherd too!
