There’s tons of discussion online about what is fat, starved or fit. Unfortunately in 2017 the American Pet Products Association found that 59% of dogs are actually obese!
You probably KNOW how to keep your dog fit & healthy but most of the general public does not. In fact you may have been told your fit dog is ‘starved or abused’ so we wanted to give you the 5 point body composition chart to use as proof that your dog is healthy!
Obviously this is a general guideline and this differs slightly with certain breeds. For example, the running and sight hounds generally come up as underweight due to their natural disposition to have a low body fat and muscle mass percentage. However, there is never an excuse for any dog breed to be emaciated or overweight so please study the 5 point body composition chart carefully and hold yourself accountable to your dogs health!
