We have a Cavalier King Charles Spanial that was a rescue dog...she is 17 lbs now and we only feed her one cup of dry dog food and and 2 -3 doggy snacks a day plus a few snacks of a plain rice cake. She hasn't been getting a lot of exercises either.
I am not sure what else to do to really get her weight down.
just saw your post Meg...sorry you've had no reply's, there is no one on this forum unfortunately, can I suggest you repost your question on the very active DOG forum or any medical questions on our ANIMAL HEALTH forum(an excellent Vet there..)
good luck with you King Charles Spaniel, they are such beautiful dogs...-)
