    I don't think she's too fat or too thin. As long as she stays that way or leaner I don't see any problem at all with her weight. Don't get me wrong, she could lose a pound or two but I would not be concerned at all with what I am seeing.

    Once I took a bully to the vet who was brought to me that was extremely underweight in my opinion. I told him he needed a little meat on his bones and he said no he was fine. I think vets are so used to seeing other breeds that they don't know an emaciated bulldog when they see one.

    That was my thought, @desertskybulldogs...... her expectations that Daisy lose SEVEN pounds was unrealistic for a bulldog.

    I agree with all the great advice above, 7 lbs seems too much weight to lose, she looks great to me. Maybe cut back to 1 cup twice a day and see how she does. My two eat Fromms Beef Frittata, 1 cup twice a day, and I give them fruits like bananas, cut up apples, blueberries, shredded carrots, and plain yogurt for treats. My guys are a year old and weigh 43 lbs. A good way to tell if your bully is a good weight is to feel their ribs, you should be able to feel the ribs, but not see them, and they should have a well defined waist when you see them from above. Maybe it's because it's winter and cold so she's not getting as much exercise, once the warmer weather comes and she can walk more and go for a daily run, she'll trim up a bit too. But she does look fine and she's beautiful

    Some Vets think that the thinner the bulldog the better. Less weight in their opinion is better for their already troublesome breathing. Looking at the posts in the bulldog waistline thread though, I am not qualified to comment. Your dogs are kept much thinner than ours and a slightly different shape too. In fact my Lucy looks positively porky by your standards and she is all muscle, with very little body fat. Our vet feels that at 50lb she is perfect as do we.

    i think your bully looks good. she carries her weight better than sarah when she was 47 pounds. she could lose 3 or 4 maybe. when sarah was on kibble she ate 3/4 cup twice a day. you can fill in with green beans or something to fill her up.

    Gosh I think she looks great. Emma's 48.1 and I couldn't imagine her losing 7 pounds, she'd be all bones. She's a petitie 48lbs. I couldn't even seen her losing a pound. She's a bit broader on the back structure than Wilson is. Here's a pic I took of her the other day. As you can see she doesn't have much of a definition in her waist but she's be no means overweight. She's on the long side too.

    I'm no expert but that seems ok. Bauer is a little over 5 months old and he is tipping the scales at a svelte 42 pounds. Vet said he was gonna be a little bigger than average...maybe 60+
