How can I tell if my dog is overweight, underweight or just right?

March 17, 2021 By admin

Weight is a tricky topic in the doggy kingdom. All dog breeds are different, and within each breed, weight varies between males and females. One Labrador Retriever can be healthy at 55 lbs, while another can be healthy at 80 lbs. There’s a massive range in play and sex is often the reason why. What’s more, mixed breed dogs are particularly difficult to judge because there’s no baseline to measure them against.

January 22, 2021 By admin
