Can you take her swimming?
It would help her loose weight, build muscle and it will help with her ortho problems.

just reduce her food
don't feed a diet food or change it
i don't know how much is recommended
as i've never fed that
but just reduce and give it a week
reduce again and give it a week if the
first reduction did not help
is there a current pic of the dog
to see if she's overweight or just large

Your opinions on weight loss plan for GSD (when on RAW)
Molly is almost 4 yrs, about 90lbs. Would like her weight to be about 84-85lbs.
Currently gets 8oz of prepared or dehydrated raw 2x day.plus small snack after late morning walk or training treats when she comes to my office. (not a lot, maybe (4) 1"inch square soft treats.
Looking for advice on moderate weight loss plan. Anything too drastic might make her colitis flare up. I was thinking of reducing her meals to 6oz instead of 8oz. That would be 4 oz less per day. Do you think she would then lose 1lb every 4 days? Does this sound reasonable? With her ortho problems, I'd like to get her leaner.
