    Default Before & After - Weight loss for Bluebell!

    Hello everyone, Bluebell has been on a drastic change of diet... no tripe sticks, bonios, treats, gone is the pedigree food and she is now on (as is lottie) royal canin light, which they both really enjoy. For a treat they now have a carrot stick. The vet is very, very pleased with her, and she has gone from 16kg to 14.6kg so far, the vet says to get her to 14kg, thats her target weight. she is never going to be smaller than that as the breeder we go to breeds the larger type of cavaliers. we have noticed a huge improvement, she is much happier. She has lost 5" on her waist !!!!!! She had a lot of fat around her waist before and infact had no shape, but she now has a waist!


    Before picture: (Seeing this photo now is quite shocking - but i never saw how large she actually was)



    After: (She has more shape)



    After: (A lot slimmer all over)


    What do you all think??

    Wow! She looks much younger and more spritely in the after photos. I'm sure she must be feeling the difference. That's great!

    That`s amazing - looks like a different dog, how old is she, we got our dog from a breeder in Devon but his mum was a small breed.

    Congratulations!! Thats fantastic, Bluebell looks really great. She probably feels it too

    Can I get some diet tips from you? Prince was 13.5kg shortly after Christmas and he was 12kg when weighed yesterday so he is getting there. I have reduced his portion size of his dog food and his second feeding is all veggies. Cut way back on treats and as many walks as we can manage. Was there anything else you found worked well? He will eat apple pieces as a treat, he's not so fussed about raw carrots but will eat them cooked.

    Wow thats an incredible difference. Be proud Mum. Its hard not giving them treats etc. so be proud of yourself. The first picture hard to even tell its a cavalier. She's beautiful. I used to keep the food on the floor 24-7. My shih tzu is big boned and his metabolism sucks like mine--lol. About a year ago we stopped leaving it on the floor and feed him once a day and I measure it. Poor guy doesn't get much. One small treat in the a.m. and then one cup of food and maybe and thats a big maybe another small treat in the a.m. He likes carrots so give him those. He couldn't be small if he tried. Just like yours big boned. Again, amazing difference and I agree--she must feel so much better and easier to walk and more energy etc.

    Bluebell will be 2 years in April this year. I started her on 50g of royal canin in morning and then 50g in evening, but didn't see much difference from that, so the vet advised to go to 35g in morning and 35g in evening. Since then, it has made a huge difference. She used to have quite a lot of treats, and when i thought about what i gave her, it was quite surprising. She enjoys raw carrot, and apple. I have had to really ignore her when i have been eating or in the kitchen. I used to just feed her once a day, in the evening, and the vet said to split the meal, and feed her twice a day and that seems to be better. I have some kitchen scales by her food, and i measure out the 35g exactly. I also bought a smaller food bowl so that the biscuit looked more in the bowl.
