Monty and his journey to ideal weight: not only people are on a diet!
Chocolate Labrador Collie nicknamed Monty celebrates a wonderful event - recently he has lost more than three kilograms and overcome many symptoms of arthritis! He followed a strict diet, and his owners had to discipline themselves and stop pampering their favorite snacks and eating from the table.
Previously, Monti weighed as much as 38.65 kg, which is very much for a dog of his breed. At the moment, the scales show 35.5 kg, and this is a great achievement!
Norma, the hostess of Monti, said that he lived with her daughter for a long time. But since she went to see her every day to take a walk with him, the family decided that it would be better and easier for everyone if Monty moved to Norma and her husband. Then the new mistress seriously took up the health of the pet, whose excess weight only aggravated his joint problems.
First of all, Monty was taken to a veterinary clinic, where he was thoroughly examined and offered a weight loss program.
Norma says: "It's like a club for losing weight dogs."
“We no longer give him cookies for dogs and everyone in the family is strictly forbidden to feed him from the table. Of course, it is not easy to say no to your beloved animal. Every month he undergoes an examination, where he is weighed and measured volumes. He’s already used to the scales and he jumps on them. ”
“It happens that the weight does not change compared to the previous indicator. Then he reads everything in our eyes, jumps off the scales, runs around the office a bit, and then gets back on the scales. As if waiting for the figure on them after such manipulations to change. But over the past year he has not gained a single gram and dropped a lot. ”
Such a weight loss club helped Monty a lot with arthritis. Norma says that both they and the veterinarians perfectly see the difference in his condition.
“Now he moves a lot, walks four times a day and, on the whole, moves more easily thanks to lost kilograms. We still have a little work to do to reach the target weight of 34.6 kg. And, as for people, the last kilogram will probably be harder to leave than everyone else. ”
In total, Monty has already lost 2 cm from the neck and 5 from the waist. Now he is fed twice a day, using the recommendations of veterinarians who calculate the amount of food in a special program. A little more - and he will become completely slender and healthy to the delight of himself and loving owners!
