mom needs to put her 2 on a diet. I keep telling her she is just shortening their lives, but she won't stop giving them treats and table food (in addition to their regular meals)
a co-worker's dog had to have knee replacement surgery due to weight. That is just horrible!.
I have a Golden and I know that big dogs are prone to joint ailments. I do my best to keep him at a healthy weight, and keep him active (not much of a problem because he loves to play). DH is bad about overfeeding our dogs.
Our dog's treats are baby carrots. They love them, and I never have to be concerned about bad dog treats from other countries making my boys sick.
we inherited a Boston who was at one time very roly poly. Her owner would go to KFC twice a day to get a chicken breast to put on her food (she preferred original recipe). I told him he was killing her. When I went to his funeral and picked her up to bring home she'd been at a kennel long enough to get down to a healthy weight.
congrats on the pups!
