Maisy went to the doctor today.
I was supposed to take her yesterday, but she ate a bunch of grass when I took her outside & I was scared she was going to puke all over me in the car, so I left her at home & took her today.
The good news: She has a MINOR ear infection in both ears. But, the doctor assures me, it's really not that bad. We just have to give her some drops 2 x a day, until the medicine runs out.
The bad news: SHE'S SEVEN POUNDS OVERWEIGHT!!!!!
She weighs 35 pounds. Her ideal weight is 28 pounds. Maybe 29, but that's pushing it.
She's been on Weight Management dog food for about 8 months now & we take her on walks all the time. We throw her rope toys for her in the backyard, which also gives her exercise.
She doesn't act like the extra weight bothers her. But, her doctor says it can cause back problems.
So, how do I get a 35 pound Beagle to lose weight?
I have no freaking idea.
Do you guys have any suggestions? (ahem. KimmyK. a.k.a Mom of 2 Beagles. Please? Help?)
Maisy & me thank you.
