It is important to keep a watchful eye on your dog’s weight for signs that they may be underweight or overweight. As a general rule, you should be able to feel your dogs ribs and spine but not see them protruding. They should have a waist, just behind their ribs and their tummy should be tucked up
Are you a smoker? Would you flick your ash in your dog’s bowl and expect him/her to eat it? Would you dust out your fireplace and pour the ash from the fire into your dog’s bowl and expect gratitude from him/her? Would you expect that it would provide any nutritional value at all? No?
