Pug weightloss - Before and After

Post by Sweetie's Human » Sat Nov 08, 2014 12:15 am

I keep meaning to post these.

Here are before and after photos of Sweetie. She weighed 11kg when we got her in March 2012. We had her down to 9kg within a few months by feeding her a sensible amount of raw food and twice daily walks. She couldn't walk to the end of our street at first - and we are the fourth house. Once she got the hang of it, she started to love it.

She's now down to 8kg and I know she's still a bit of a roly-poly, but we're just thrilled that she even has a waist. And energy!

Unfortunately, she still has a lot of loose skin and quite a bit of it bunches at her neck and shoulders, which is odd. Reminds me of an old lady in a fur stole.


Before

Someone should be locked up for letting her get like this. Note also the callouses up the back of her legs. They are now sprouting little tufts of fur through the thickened skin.


After

(Yes, she has climbed into the laundry shelving :roll: )
