my 2 year old springer is under 15 kilos is that under weight?

Is my Springer Spaniel who's 2 years old being 15 kilos under-weight?



From Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com
It depends on how active they are and how much they are eating. Are they eating well? You may want to put them on an active dog diet such as Burns Active or underweight Dog Food

15kg dog

Hi there

Is your ESS a dog or bitch?

We have a dog and a bitch who are brother and sister and are 2 yrs old. The dog is 17kg and the bitch is 15kg (just).

Whilst at their checked up I asked the vet about our girl and how slim she is and he basically said that some people would think she was under weight but its really the same as people who eat and eat and can't put on weight and others do. I explained what we fed them and how much etc and he had no concerns.

We feed both our dogs the same amount of food 150g twice a day, they rarely have treats and are exercised regularly. The dog who is bigger is also the more nutty and hyper of the two but still his sister is smaller.

I think the main thing to make sure is if your ESS has always been a thinner one then that should be ok (presuming the diet is ok) but if he/she is suddenly losing weight then I would ask your vet for advice.
