    Default Is Joey Losing Her Girlish Figure?

    Question.....I see other bully photos taken from this perspective and they appear to have a rather well defined waste. Ummmmmm does Joey need to go on a diet? She weighed 65ish pounds at her well dog check up over the summer. The vet did say not to worry BUT to cut back on amount of kibble at each feeding (she gets .75 cup in the am and .75 cup in the evening)

    .75 of one food could have more calories than 1 cup of another food, so the qty of food is not as important as the total calorie count. Does your little beauty get much exercise? Has her activity level changed much?

    She looks 3-5 lbs over ideal but she’s far from obese, IMO.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Thanks! I walk at 6:30 every morning and she will go for a short part of the walk but only IF one of her dog friends is going.....Unless one of her friends is going too she literally stops at the edge of the yard and will NOT move.

    I dedicate an hour right after I close my office for playtime, mostly toss and bring back toy. But she sleeps A TON! She'll be 4 y/o May 31st and has been a very good sleeper for the past 2 years. She sleeps all day in my office except for the occasional delivery person greeting. I'm thankful to hear not obese.....

    Thanks!

    Hmmmm, well.....might need to put my sweetheart on a little diet and exercise plan.....

    I can tell where rib cage stops, ribs have a bit of a "cushion" on them

    Gosh, it's so interesting to see how they all are so different. Louie gets 1.5 cups of kibble just in the am and then approximately 9.2 ounces of raw in the pm which I just started increasing to try to add a couple pounds on.

    I think a lot of people have had success with cutting back on kibble and then adding in some fresh green beans to give the feeling of "fullness" and cut back on the calories. But as mentioned, the food you are feeding might have more calories than other brands.

    You know I've never looked at calorie count until now, here it is for Life's Abundance Grain Free All Stage Kibble

    CALORIE CONTENT (calculated): Metabolizable Energy (ME) = 3,884 kcal/kg, 501 kcal/cup

    Is this considered high calorie? Thanks!

    Like @cbrug, sometimes mine will get Acana and I just bought Acana Duck which is 3393kcal. 407 kcal per cup

    Again a previous post....this is your ingredients in your bag

    Ingredients:
    Turkey Meal, Chicken Meal, Field Peas, Chickpeas, Potatoes, Chicken Fat, (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Egg Product, Sweet Potatoes, Dried Tomato Pomace, Natural Flavor, Whitefish Meal, Flaxseed Meal, Salmon Oil, Yeast Culture, Sunflower Lecithin, Carrots, Salt, Celery, DL-Methionine, Potassium Chloride, Fructooligosaccharide, Yeast Extract, L-Lysine, Vitamin E Supplement, Choline Chloride, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Dicalcium Phosphate, Cranberries, Blueberries, Taurine, Beets, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Proteinate, Parsley, Lettuce, Iron Proteinate, Selenium Yeast, Copper Proteinate, Inositol, Watercress, Spinach, Niacin Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Acetate, Manganese Sulfate, Riboflavin Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Biotin, Manganese Proteinate, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Calcium Iodate, Folic Acid, Dried Lactobacillus casei Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium animalis Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus reuteri Fermentation Product.

    Contains a source of viable, naturally-occurring microorganisms.

    CALORIE CONTENT (calculated): Metabolizable Energy (ME) = 3,884 kcal/kg, 501 kcal/cup.

    So as you see your bag has potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets n carrots...Carbs!!

    Now if you do the math Joey is averaging 100cal 2x per day more than other brands. Example...A small potatoe n a sweet potatoe basically has the same calories like 85cal but in carbs itís different.. ex a small red potatoe has 27gr, white potatoe has 34gr n sweet potatoe has 36gr of carbs.

    If you go with legumes like lentils thatís ex: for 1/2 a cup itís 19g of carbs minus 8g of fiber which gives you for 1/2 cup 11g of net carbs. Thatís healthier in my opinion.

    Hereís acana duck if you want to compare.... OH one more thing in your brand, Iím against chicken fat. IMO, That isnít healthy.

    Yes, either traveling to auction sites or at home office. Mostly home office with occasional trips.

    Looks like I need to step up her activity for sure!
