Re: Is my vizsla to small/Thin?

Willie's about about 4-1/2 years old now, and he weighs 70 pounds. He measures 24" at the withers. At one point, he got up to 75 pounds, and the Vet said that was too much. I didn't have to alter his mealtime calories at all. Just had to cut back on the treats he was getting throughout the day. I tend to suffer from an owner's affliction -- "treat inflation". Every day he was asking for more and more treats, and I was giving in! So anyway, gradually he dropped back down to 70 lbs. He still gets a few treats, but less than before.
