    Hello,

    Great adivce above as expected from EBN.

    I worry less about the actual number of the weight than what the condition of the dogs are in. I have dogs ranging from 45-90 pounds. Just built differently. Also the time of the year and the activity level should control how much food is feed and adjusted as the months go by. (as adults we should have someone control OUR food intake?...hehe..)

    AS for the limp, since the xrays came back clean, it does seem more like growing pain exacerbated by the walk. Bed rest and recovery and then SLOWLY start again. As EBD get older, some just can't walk as far?

    Massage, warm bath, pain/muscle reliever

    Good Day~

    I hope she feels better soon. As for the weight, Lucy will be 15 months old next week. When I took her to the vet at a year she weight 45 & 1/2 lbs. I was told she was getting a little chunky and to aim for 42 pounds. I was giving her too many treats. I switched her treats to green beans, bananas (her favorite), other approved fruits/veggies, and her own kibble. Every pup is different in build, but I took her in for an ear infection last week and she weighed in at 41.8 pounds. I go more by her appearance, though, than numbers.

    I had a boxer than was 10 pounds overweight and we had weight related issues the last 3-4 years of her life (she lived to almost 10), mostly orthopedic. She got so used to eating the amount that she had always eaten that she would whine a lot and I was weak. After that experience I'm extra vigilant with Lucy as I don't want her to suffer with some of the problems Gimli (boxer) had, so I'm probably a little overboard now. I've attached a picture in her new tie-dye harness that I took this past Monday.

    I have had this experience with my bully she was also 1 yrs old at the time. She was overweight by 5-10 lbs my vet said her ideal lbs should range from 40-45 lbs she was 52 lbs.. anyways she was diagnosed with hip dysplasia he gave us anti-inflamatory meds pain pills for 7 days. She didnt flinch when you touched her just limped alot and sometimes her hip would pop out of socket I would have to massage in back in.. Scary stuff But now she is 4 yrs old and better than ever!! Within a couple months got her weight to 45 lbs and has stayed that weight for 3 yrs. I have had her on 1500 mg of Glucosamine/Chondroitin daily plus my favorite treat Joint Max soft glucosamine chews 2/daily. My vet is a bulldog specialist and is so pleased with how she is doing now. YES her weight makes a huge difference its hard some bullies are easier to maintain weight alot more muscular, just like mine plus FOOD is very imp I thought I had her on good food I was wrong I had her on Royal Canine Bulldog Formula.. not a good Idea she is on Fromms it is fabulous. Instead of fatty empty calorie treats she gets fresh fruits and veggies and everyday I put a little something special in her food like a few berries some green beans, carrots chips, and once a wk a cooked egg. Please start her on glucosamine now it will make a big difference on her quality of life. My Mya never has problems walking running ect. Shes like a puppy all over again.
