How to Tell If Your Dog is Overweight

If you’re concerned about your dog’s weight then you should consult with your vet. Your vet can weigh your dog and let you know if your dog needs to lose, gain, or stay at the normal weight based on the dog’s breed, age, and lifestyle. If you want to tell if your dog is overweight or underweight on your own then there is a simple at home test you can do. First, have your dog stand up. Next, stand over your dog and look down on him so that you are looking down onto his back and rib cage. The ribs should not be sticking out. They should be covered with a thin layer of fat and skin and fur. If there is a huge layer and the sides of the dog are sticking out then he’s overweight. If there’s no layer or you see the rib bones pushing at the skin then he is underweight. Consult with your vets Frisco, TX for further aid. Visit this site for additional information.
