My Black Lab needs to shed some weight!

Postby Zereruk » Thu Jan 10, 2019 2:03 pm

I have a female black lab. I know labs are prone to being fat! "Katie" is 4yo and gets fed 2cups of food in the morning and one at night. She stays in the garage all day and gets out when we come home from work at about 3:30 P.M. central https://petbibles.com/wet-cat-foods-for-weight-loss/ . In the summer she runs all the time and swims in the pond. Last summer I got her some diet dog food and it helped w/ excersize as well. I need some way to get her trimmed down. My brother has a black and yellow lab. He leaves a HUGE bowl of food out for them 24/7 and he can barely keep weight on them. I need some advice

You may want to consult your vet to come up with a diet and exercise routine that is appropriate for Katie. I'm not sure about any specific advice other than providing a balanced diet and sufficient exercise but I'm not sure what that is for a dog and it may vary between breeds/individuals.
