i was just wondering if dogs can have a slow metabolism which causes them to be overweight?
zoey, one of my chis, is overweight but she hardly eats anything! we dont leave food down all day so she only eats what she has for breakfast & dinner, and she is exercised everyday too
whenever i feed her she only eats around 1/4 to 1/2 of the food i put down. we have tried her on various diets but none work!!
i dont know what to do because i want her to lose weight as it is bad for her health and dont want her developing anything like arthritis etc.
we have asked the vet about it but he thinks that we feed her too much ( we dont, we feed her what it says on the packet and even reduced it but that doesnt work either)
has anyone ever experienced this before??
thanks in advance
