Each dog has a unique physical appearance and temperament. Like humans, dogs have fluctuations in energy levels from day to day, as well as slight fluctuations in their weight, on average. Each breed, however, has a standardized guide for weight. During your dog’s annual check-up, your vet will weigh Fido and record his measurements for future reference.
While obesity is a common problem with dogs, it is also possible for dogs to become underweight. If a friend or family member points out that your dog is looking a little slimmer than usual, it is a good idea to take this observation seriously. Before rushing off to the vet, there is a simple method for you to check that your dog has a healthy weight.
