Hi, I bet you're all thinking 'well stop feeding it'. It's not that easy. Sacha was thrown out of a car in the Spanish countryside several years ago and we took her in. She's a German Shepherd and we loved her from day 1. We realized after a while that she was probably the runt of the litter as she hasn't grown to anything like full German Shepherd size.
She's now about 4 1/2 years and she is obese. She is in the house at night without food and we try and watch her through the day.
The problem is we have 25 other dogs, all rescues, and we put food out in several places to reduce friction and it is there 24/7.
To take the food away would cause major inconvenience to us and all the other dogs.
We have thought about a muzzle but are worried about the heat as it gets up to 40C/104F in the summer here.
We are taking her to the vet soon but I wondered if anyone else had similar issues.
Exercise is not an issue, she still plays with her pals and we have 34000 sq. metres which is about 8 1/2 acres.
We were thinking maybe an appetite suppressant?
I'd be grateful for any ideas, thanks
