Yesterday at the vet we weighed Snowie and he's lost weight - used to be 34-34.5kg (which we've always been happy with). Yesterday he was 33.5 kg. Perhaps slightly less - he was dancing around the scale so it kept going up and down. My husband and I also weighed ourselves - and we've also lost weight - been on diet since January. We haven't changed Snowie's meals at all. But I'm guessing he's getting far fewer treats from us since there are no treats to be had in our house!! No bits of toast and butter. No cream to lick. No cheddar cheese to snack on. Snacks are now in the form of steamed broccoli - which he LOVES!! Begs for it!! I remarked to the vet that even though Snowie is so itchy (the reason for our visit), he's never been more perky - runs off on our walks to discover things, doesn't just plod along like before. She said a half kilo loss can do this. Wow! The diet has been worth it! I've worried his ribs are showing a bit, but given his energy and ability to jump now, I think a bit of rib showing is better.
