So weird question. Lyka is the first “fat” dog I’ve had. She was lean and fit up until this year, when age smacked her in her face and slowed her down. She is on a diet kibble now, and refuses to eat it most days. She will go two-three days without eating, and finally give in and eat (when I sneak a bit of Fromm into the diet kibble. Sssshhhhh). The weird thing is, you can still feel all her ribs, and see her last two ribs when she is standing, and still had a tucked waist. She doesn’t seem to be gaining any belly weight at all, it’s from her ribs up to her neck. I’ve never seen a dog get upper fat, and not lower fat. Anyone else end up with a top heavy senior?
She has her follow up appointment on Wednesday, so I’ll ask the vet then, but thought maybe some of you would have advice.
And thanks to those that recommended the injections for her hips, she gets her first injection on Wednesday, and I’m hoping it will also help with weight loss if I can get her more active.
