pavlov, it would be very much appreciated if you would allow threads to say stay on topic, rather than encouraging a rehashing of other recent threads. It is disrespectful to the original poster who is asking a specific question in relation to their dog and their situation. Sorry for the off-topic ...

I just sent you $100. I guess it was a little too late, but I forgot to check this thread. I know that $100 in donation is not a lot, but at least it is something. Also I do have a 15lbs bag of orijen the new fish formula and I would like to donate it to you guys as well. I though my dog would love ...

Gatorpit & Mommy2Kane: I am suprised by your responses, because usually the 1st sign of aggression and there we have it - put the dog down lol to the other poster - I would absolutely not be worried at all. Me and my bull play and wrestle on the grass all the time and he playfully nips and bites...

I know it is a matter of personal preference, really, but I generally like to see at least the last two ribs on my dogs. I'm pretty anal about my dogs' weights, though, especially on my HD/luxating patella girl who really shoud not gain any more weight because of her poor rear. How many dogs do you...

Yep, maybe we could see some side views and top view? However, if a vet mentions that a dog is chubby, I tend to believe it. Many vets won't mention it at all. Can you see any ribs? A nice tuck? He did not say he was chubby, he said that he has his waist (which he does) and is really proportionate,...

He sure will grow more! Most pitties don't even really begin to fill oput their muscle till 2 years, and don't stop till 3 or 4. And no, in all the standards, as long as the dog is balanced, weight is not to be an issue. He is really proportionate.. he has his waist, broad chest, really muscly (you...

The other thing - is being 78lbs way too much? I know that standard APBT should not be more than 65lbs. For example if he goes to be a show dog, does he get penalized for being a porkie?

Show us a good side view. Some vets can be off about proper weights for various breeds. Will take new pictures tomorrow and post them see what you guys think. I believe he is in really good shape, but the vet seems to think that I need to be careful if we hit the 80lb mark (which I believe we will)...

porkie pittie

My APBT had his first annual check up as an adult today. He is 17, almost 18 month now and they did bloodwork, fecal, updated his shots, etc. His condition is more than excellent, teeth excellent, everything, but he weighed 78 pounds today and the doc said he is a porkie lol. Just kidding! He did no...

prettyboystuntz - I switch Innova Evo and Orijen and my pup has horrible gas as well(if it had a color, would have been toxic green). The protein content (in my opinion) has nothing to do with the gas. Give your pup a good month or two in order to adjust to the food and as the other poster said, add...
