Callisto's vet visit

Postby WakeMeUp » Thu Jul 24, 2008 1:13 am

I took her to the vets today. She now weights 43.7lbs...... About 6 months ago she weighed about 54lb or somewhere around there......

The vet didnt say anything about her weight but I was wondering if this weigh change is okay? I have cut back a bit on her food intake becaues my mom LOVES to sneak Callisto treats and human food....Which makes me red! But what do you all think?

I think she looks okay... But Im always welcomed to other's thoughts. Heres the most recent picture of her and an old picture from a few months ago or so...

BEFORE.......

I think she looks much better now. She was definitely chunky.

:eek:

Great now she'll be throughing up her food thinking shes fat!! lol

Callisto is 2yrs 4months old.

About muscle mass lose.... Hm... No I dont think so. I'd like her to gain some if any but shes not into spring or flirt poles. And she runs some but not as much as Id like. Im the lazy one of the relationship.... But Im trying lol!

Id like to make her a treadmill or something...

i was referring to her hind legs, but light in photos is a tricky subject..

i agree she looked chunkier.

what im trying to get to, is shes not bone thin.. no real worries..

just try to get her to exercise a bit more, stick to a firm diet (NO TABLE SCRAPS).

try weighing her weekly and keep a log.

im also doubting the weight changed in a matter of days?

She looks much better now, not quite as round. Its amazing how well some dogs hide their weight. Two years ago we switched from Iams to high Quality kibbles and when I took Saber in for his 2yr rabies this month he had lost 30lbs!
