What is your Dog's Score?

Do you know if your dog is a healthy weight? Finding out your dog’s ideal body weight and learning how to maintain it allows your pup to live a longer and healthier life. 

Regular exercise and a healthy diet are important for every dog, however it’s important to remember that every dog is different. Each dog has their own specific nutritional requirements and activity levels needed to maintain ideal body condition. Because of this, it may sometimes be difficult to achieve the “perfect" healthy weight for your dog. Therefore, we always recommend regular check-ins with your vet to make sure your dog is at their healthiest weight and body condition.

Check out our Body Score Chart below to determine where your pup rates and what steps can be taken to keep them in great shape. Here’s to many more happy and healthy years to come!
