Slimmed Down Dogs Find New Leash on Life

PDSA an animal charity in the UK has announced the winners of it's Pet Fit Club Competition. In first place is Keano, a black male Labrador who lost 22 pounds. He was so obese at 123 pounds that he could not roll over onto his back. After slimming down he's gone from the ultimate couch potato to an active, healthy dog with energy to spare. Second place winner, a German Shepard named Alfie lost 20 pounds. Both are an inspiration to chunky dogs everywhere that it can be done.

The PDSA website has a petcast or video clip with a good audio explanation of how to judge your dog's weight condition. You can go to it at the link here: Once at the page come down the center of the screen after the words "Checking Your Pet's" shape to a button that starts the video. Please feel free to call Graduate Services if you want assistance in hearing this.
