First, assess your dog’s weight.
Your dog’s weight is healthy, if:
- Ribs are felt easily
- Tucked abdomen (no sagging stomach)
- Waist when viewed from above
Your dog is overweight, if:
- Difficult to feel ribs under fat
- Sagging stomach (you can grab a handful of fat)
- Broad, flat back
- No waist
