same here. My male snuck up to 93lbs somehow, and 88 is about perfect for him. I pet him at training and was like.. woah buddy.I would say that she does look a bit heavy. But only you will know this when you feel her ribs, if you can feel them!
Onyx is 26" and over 90#...when she is 93, I can't feel her ribs like I can when she is around 90. Those extra few pounds make a big difference.
They probably struggle with the skew the 80% of dogs in american who are overweight gives themto be honest, most vets don't know what a healthy dog looks like. a vet at my vets office (not my regular vet) told me Dodger was way to skinny even though he's 75 lbs and you can see some ribs, and has a nice tuck. to me he's at a good weight.
My 90lb male eats 2 cups per day right at this second, grain-free high protein, with maybe a 1/4cup of tripeOkay, I will have to get a pic today.
I think she is fat, but I can actually feel her ribs, she also has this loose skin that jiggles when she runs. Last year she actually weighed a whooping 106 lbs and the vet said she was chunky. When I took her back a few months later she was down to 96lbs and he didn't say anything.
I have reduced her food from 5 cups to 3 cups a day and she has only dropped the 10lbs. When she was my only GSD I ran her everyday but my attention has been on my newer GSD dog that had some issue when I adopted her. (they are not able to walk together)
I bought a treadmill this month and I use that for the dogs on days we can't go outside now, hopefully that will help.
I will go take photos now
