How to tell if your dog is fat

You can tell if your dog is overweight by looking at him or her.  You should be able:

  • to feel the ribs,
  • see a waist from above and
  • their tummy should tuck – be higher than their ribs – when viewed from the side.

If your dog has no waist when viewed from above and the side and you can’t feel the ribs, then your dog is likely overweight.

Talk to your vet, feed your dog a quality dog food in measured amounts and take your dog for lots of walks.  It’s good for both of you!
