Do you have chubby pets that need to loose weight to get healthier? This is the place to chat about it and help our pets come up with a plan to slim down too.
I have a rabbit, Cinderella, that came from a life behind bars. After 4 years at a rescue she had gained far too much weight from being so sedentary (hhhmmm, sound familiar?) Cindi is a mini satin weighing in at 7 pounds! The poor girl couldn't even keep herself clean.
My house rabbits are free roam within a carefully bunny proofed room. This gave Cindi lots of opportunity to stretch her legs. She is bonded to Houdini, who is always in trouble. It's a perfect pairing because he keeps her on the go. A change to limited Oxbow pellets, fresh greens, and unlimited hay also helped. Over the past year she has dropped to 5.5 pounds and is feeling great! Now I play a subdued chase game with her in the evenings so she keeps her weight off.
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans for good, not evil. Plans to give you a hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 minilophop.wordpress.com
