How long will it take my dog to lose its excess weight?

Every situation is an individual case, but most dogs should be able to reach their ideal weight in six to twelve months. Healthy dogs that are able to exercise constantly may experience quicker results. Older dogs with medical conditions may take longer to shed the pounds. In general, if your dog needs to lose less than 30 percent of its body weight, he should reach his goal within six months; dogs that need to lose more than 30 percent of their body weight take about nine to twelve months.
