Default Oh my! 77lb Dachshund!

This makes me so sad -- on many levels. I hope he is able to shed the weight and live a happy/active life!

Wow. Can he walk? That's a horrible thing to do to any dog... but a dwarf breed... that's just unforgivable. I'm sure he has back problems galore.

Man, that's disgusting. Penny was overweight when we got her, but that is by far the worst I've seen.

I really hope they know what they are doing. I mean, there is a picture of them feeding him a bowl of carrots...

Oh wow. Poor dog.

One of my coworkers' vets told her her dog is fat and gave her a booklet about getting her dog to lose weight. What I don't get was her saying 'But I like fat dogs. I think they're cute.'

I don't get it.

I saw that, so sad.

I read the other day that the owner had dementia or something and half the time did not even realize she was feeding him.

Srsly... I see a bunch of carrot references, "eat your carrots!". Um, if you insist on feeding vegetables to a carnivore, carrots should be fed sparingly. They're sugary and not very nutritional. I'm sure that poor guy has been fed crappy, corn and sugar based kibble his whole life in mass amounts. He needs a raw diet to detox his sick body!!! I bet he's on a prescription weight loss food, that is corn based. Of course anything is better than his current state of health.

I hope that all sorts of thyroid panels and diabetes tests have been done on this dog. I assume that's why they're collecting donations.

^^^ I have a client with an over weight Aussie and said client wants said Aussie to run agility. I am consistently telling her the dog MUST lose 20 lbs for agility too be safe. The owner argues the dog almost never eats anything, then in the next breath she talks about feeding tons of veggies, chewies, and so forth. I want to strangle her.

Her coat is cut short, that's all chub.
