My mom insists that Angel looks thin to her. I took pictures of her today to get opinions from you guys. If anything I think she's a little chubby..

id say she could stand to lose a couple lbs, gotta push a little (not much) to feel her ribs..  any recommendation s on weight loss? she's allergic to corn  so not a lot i can give her that doesnt have corn , corn meal etc in it.. it all upsets her belly... she'll get a little bloated, blowouts, etc.. so i have to feed her  a holistic brand of dog food that has no corn whatsoever in it..

Just cut her meals by 1/5 for a week and observe the difference  ;)

Yup, I think she looks just fine, and maybe could lose a few lbs.

I agree to just cut her food a bit and see how she does on that for about a month or so.  I'm needing to cut down the little guys food I think........N igel is eating more than his fair share of the food.  So I'll cut it by 1/4 cup.  When I cut down Keiko's food a few years ago, I cut it down by 1/4 cup at a time as well.

Yeah, totally exercise her. She'll lose weight, have a great time, and generally be a happy camper. Frisbee, catch, running, walking, whatever! And then you can keep her diet the same, too, probably. Its not like she's a house, just slightly thick.
