Weight chart dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Weight chart dogs


Avatar f tn In a dog with ideal weight, you should be able to easily feel his ribs and see a slight bit of the last rib, but the rest of the ribs or the pelvis and spine bones should not be poking out. You can see a chart of body weight conditions at the following website: http://www.purina.com/dogs/health/AdultBodyCondChart.
1963554 tn?1325451090 It is completely heart wrenching when their time comes to leave us, just as with human friends and family that we lose over time. In the end, all we can do is offer our dogs all the reassurance, love and attention they deserve and be as kind and humane as we possibly can. They need us to be strong and do the right thing ... regardless of how much it hurts us, it's one of the many responsibilities of being a good owner. My heart goes out to you. Give Shaggy an extra hug from me.
Avatar m tn Anytime we need a dog to lose weight, for example, we reduce by just 1/4 cup his usual amount, it's the easiest thing to do, and then when they reach an ideal weight, we change the amount decreased and move it up, so for example we'd go from 1/4 less to just 1/8 less.
Avatar n tn and further more the very next morning i swear....i have gained more weight! i am literally gaining weight EVERY DAY.
Avatar n tn www.marchofdimes.com has a good weight-gain chart, go to the site, click on pregnancy, and then click on toolkit.
Avatar n tn Diet chart is the way to go, what is low carb for you may not be proper for your body to lose weight. Go to a dietician and plan a neat diet chart of 500 cals less than the recommended calories of your age and height, take proteins, minerals, vitamins, high fibre carbohydrate, some fat without cholesterol. + dance which is intense so that you lose atleast 500 cals in 1 to 11/2 hrs. Take care, as with this you will lose weight!
Avatar n tn She has recently done Weight Watchers for one month and followed it religiously. She lost practically no weight. She also exercise at least five times a week for an hour and a half. She is very frustrated and I don't have any answers. Unfortunately, her doctors over the years don't seem to be able to help. Should we be looking at type of insulin? She presently talkes Lantus and Humalog. Does high protein help? Her weight is in her back across her shoulders, in her middle and thighs.
Avatar f tn Yes, some children are picky eaters. You did not state his weight so I do not know where his weight lays on the growth chart.
1396867 tn?1520813858 Feeding twice a day (2 smaller, relatively speaking) will help speed up your dogs metabolism and you'll actually start to see a little weight loss as a result. I know this sounds strange, but it's actually a GOOD thing for a dog to be hungry all the time. I keep my guys well fed, but around meal-time, they start to get edgy and antsy and act like I never feed them (it's almost comical!). Check out the chart on the back of your dog-food-bag, and go from there.
Avatar n tn If no vomiting occurs, you can safely repeat the three percent hydrogen peroxide once more. Chocolate is toxic for dogs. However, I have known dogs who ate chocolate with no bad effects to them at all! But best not to take the risk. Your dog will throw up, then a little while later, will feel perfectly OK, and probably hungry again. So you won't be doing him any harm. Milk chocolate is less toxic than dark chocolate, and baking chocolate is the worst of all.

Avatar f tn So if he gets sick, secondary sickness, loss of appetite, lack of weight gain. At the moment all the vets have given me is that we can chart his progress to see how illness is progressing. He is Asymptomatic at the moment. But I feel like we are living with a time bomb. Was told by Vet that she has seen this in shitzu's. Anyone else out there with this issue???? Asked vet about raw food? Looked on line holistic type medicine.
Avatar n tn Raw diets are helpful to relieve seizures in certain overweight dogs dogs as they help to slow digestion and absorption. If you try this, be sure to introduce the raw foods slowly in to the diet which to help relieve seizures is best if it is high in fat and protein and low in carbs, similar to an "Atkins" diet. Acupuncture is helpful to move the Qi flow down the bladder channel and and help regulate Qi flow up the Du Mai and Yang Qiao Mai.
Avatar n tn The main problem is his weight and the thyroid hormone levels. Firstly the weight. I just spent some time before this post reading the entire literature on the back of the Purina One bag and it says that I should be able to feel/see his ribs. Its been years since that was the case. He has a large noticeable round belly that sticks out the side of him when he lays down yet he acts like he is completely fine around the house and yard aside from the biting at his paws/legs and grass eating.
Avatar n tn To curb that, we walk the dogs, go on bike rides, do errands, etc. Still -- no weight loss. I am getting very frustrated, but am not going to give up. Any thoughts, suggestions, or input? Thanks!
603946 tn?1333945439 My vet who knows him inside out is on maternity leave although I know she has left his chart, there is only a sub vet so I want to ask here.... Is it closer to the end when the twitches start? He still plays and "dances" with me, snuggles a lot more. Buddy is only a 4 year old baby, the sweetest, lovable friend I have ever had. His brother who is no longer living here used to attack my Buddy out of jealousy, the brother could not stand me to pet his brother.
Avatar m tn And unlike the proteins and fats that truly do help us lose weight, farmed salmon can have the opposite effect. Wild salmon is naturally rose-tinted, an effect of the shrimp and krill it eats. But because farmed salmon subsists on feed pellets made from ground fish and soy, its flesh is beige. Salmon farmers add dyes to their feed to change the fish’s color. They even use color chart. It allows farmers to choose shades of flesh between pale salmon pink (#20) and bright orange-red (#34).
Avatar n tn He drinks water properly. He has no fever. he is not vomiting and his stool is perfect. his weight is 32kgs. He has no sign of illness or behavioural problem. He is enjoying his daily walk with me, chewing bones, playing, chasing, fetching and is always playfull with my other dog(8 months old Lhasa Apso) and my son. He is limping a bit with his left hind leg. His daily diet chart is as follows: Early morning: 6 chapati (made of wheat flour) with yoghurt(200gm).
Avatar f tn Hi, my 6-year-old Shar Pei was just diagnosed with advanced kidney failure with a creatinine of 11.2 and BUN registering off the chart on their limited chem panel. Phosphorus was not run, nor was blood pressure assessed. I suspect this is a chronic condition, as subtle signs have been present for some time now. She has a current ear infection and has been under a bit more stress the past month or so due to a recent addition to our dog pack of now 3, but all of them get along well.
Avatar f tn Like always, see a vet if your dog has diarrhea for more than a two days, or is seeming weak or unexpectedly loosing weight. There is no pet store product to treat giardia. Rx only. Dogs cannot get worms directly from rabbit poop. Tapeworm infections require an intermediate host, fleas, or the direct eatting of an infected rodent (yum, mice for lunch).

1007532 tn?1332771526 just remember that you still have to lose the weight after and pretty much any weight over 30/40lbs gained during pregnancy isn't great for you OR the baby...so be smart about it :-).
Avatar n tn Both I and my husband are healthy, normal weight, no smoking or alcohol. He had two childred in his previous marriage. M periods are still regular usually 26 to 27 days (ranging 25-29) Does this mean I am still ovulating? My periods are very short for the last several years, mostly 3 days, sometimes only 2. Could that be a problem? I start spotting few days before the period. What would be the most fertile days in my cycle?
589816 tn?1332980371 That wishing really hard for something doesn't make it happen, and staring at your chart doesn't make it change! That one day my DH would know so much about how my uterus functions and what it looks like from the inside (thanks HSGs). That a pregnancy doesn't always equal a baby. That miscarriage is so common. That I would wish we had started TTC earlier. That my friends' pregnancies would start to make me sad instead of happy. That I wasted ALOT of money on Birth control pills!!
3938642 tn?1348688294 I can't hold down food thanks to my nausea. Plus side is I've lost weight, but not quite the way anyone wants to lose weight... I have a constant ringing in my ears, insomnia, dizziness (two really bad falls in the last month spraining a wrist and bruising my shin bone) and I've been passing out. Also have this crazy wooshing sound I hear/feel in my head.... and of course the nausea and headache/shoulder/neck/back aches. I promised my husband to go and see a neuro. I've now seen two. Neuro 1.
Avatar f tn She has always had a major weight issue she is 21 yrs about 5' 330 lbs. However, Two days ago I took her to a fair and thought we'd hit the rides seeing I had another friend come along also. The sad news is once we go on the rides the guy that ran the ride told my friend she couldn't go on the ride because she was too big. I noticed her having to stop and sit down almost every 5 minutes. She was panting really heavily and sweating.
335728 tn?1331418012 In my case I had bigger and very tender boobies, emotional lability (with more depression) and weight gain. All in favor here of trying the MJ. Good luck and DO keep us posted.
1832268 tn?1326819610 I hope the information collected here, along with recommendations and guidance from the dogs veterinarian, will offer dog owners helpful information, and realistic expectations. I would like to hear some input from others, as to what information would be helpful. For example...Breed, Age, Symptoms, Creatine, Bun, and Phorsphorus levels at time of first exam that revealed Kidney Disease, as well as End Stage Symptoms and Lab Values ( if known. ) How Quickly did the disease progress.
1623561 tn?1299944237 Many vets aren't aware that dogs can take phenergan, so your vet may have to send you to a pharmacy for it. There is really no telling how much time your dog has left. It's a tough act of heavy-duty nursing and attention to symptoms to keep your dog comfortable. Like people, some dogs fight for every last moment of life and others quickly give in There's no way to tell until you try. Here is a link to what I found to be the best resource on managing kidney failure in dogs.
Avatar f tn foods to feed for hyper-allergic dogs, but really, the patch-test is your best way forward in the long run. Not all vets do this test as it's quite complex and specialised, but a large vet practice should be capable of undertaking it.
