OK, weight vs muscle tone. I bet you all are right, she was rescued from an environment where she was cabled 24/7. So she has not had the excersize that she has needed. Also she has been tested as positive for heartworm. (did the blood work on her when I first got her) I'm allowing her to do as she wishes currently, she starts her shot treatments next month, then she won't be allowed to run around for a while, so good bye muscle tone then. Hopefully I will have her in good enough health to pull through that well. I had her spayed last week. (I don't breed)
I just rattled off those photos last night. The bottom two pictures more accurately reflect what I see when I look at her.
I did have her on Diamond brand High energy formula, which is what I have all my other dogs on. I know it's not the best food, but according to the indipendent dog food review, it's not the bottom of the list either, it's sort of mid grade. She did ok on it, but I didn't like the look of her stools, they were too soft, so I switched her over to TOTW High Prairie. It seems to be agreeing with her digestive track a little better. Her problem is she's a nibbler, she won't sit down and wolf down 2-4 cups in one sitting like the other dogs do. So I feed her what she will eat in the morning, shove satin balls into her all day (she seems to really like those) and then at night she has a crate, and it has a water and food dispenser in it so she can slurp and nibble all night. (funny olive oil was mentioned, I added a little of that to the satin ball receipe)
