My names Floyd, and Im a bloater....

So, vets today for flea treatment

"Can we weigh him? He looks a bit fat" (quite straightforward, our vet)


"So, he's not fat, but he is 31 kilos - what are you feeding him?" :)

I hope he now grows tall, to match his weight!

Poor Floyd... I hope you told that vet they'd hurt your Doodley feelings...! :cry: (Or maybe you could just sit on him.... :wink: )

I took Echo and Whisper to the vets for a health check and the vet said Whisper had a "solid bottom" and could do with loosing a bit of weight. He then looked at Echo and said "him too" They are miniature and weigh about 16.5 kg I can feel ribs and see a waist on both dogs. They both need clipping so look fatter than they are. I can imagine their thoughts if I cut their food rations! Echo is a typical lab and would eat the whole bag of kibble if he got a chance, Whisper is a little more discerning. I could stand to loose a couple of pounds though!
Olly, Echo and Whisper.
