monicah Posted February 22, 2009 Report Share Posted February 22, 2009 When I got Zimba in July he was 55lbs and very fat. I exercised him in the woods 1,5-2 hours every day and I fed him kibbles that I bought at my Vet office. He gradually lost weight and now he weights 37lbs. He looks great in my eyes! He also has some muscles after all the running in the woods. Now my mother thinks he's too thin! Other people have made comments that he has lost a lot of weight since the first time they saw him. I thought a healthy looking dog is supposed to be a bit thinner than what we usually consider thin on a dog. I can feel his ribs when I stroke his sides but I can't see them. Here are recent pics of Zimba: My mother also thinks Kira is too thin. She's 9 months and weights 33lbs. I got worried when she told me this. Maybe I'm not feeding my dogs enough? I feed them twice a day and they also get some extra treats when I train them. Here's a pic of Kira: Here's a pic of both my underweight dogs : Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
