Weight Loss Support - OT - My 8 pound dog eats more than I do

I just switch my chihuahuas food and after reading the label I realized that my dog - which is a whopping eight (8) pounds eats ~300 calories or 40 kcal per pound. That is like me eating over 6,000 calories a day! What a metabolism!

Hope you had good laugh like I did, lol.

:lol: Such must also be the case for my 7 lb dog and 12 lb dog, not to mention the 80 lb lug. Lucky mutts!

I'm going to check my dog's food the next time I buy some. My 40kg labrador can sure put away the food though... and is enviably more toned than I'll ever be lol

That's funny, especially for such a little pup! :D

I'll have to check my dog's food. My dogs would eat me out of house and home if I let them - yet they rarely seem to gain a pound. I covet their metabolism and their never-ending energy, that's for sure!

Ok, now I have to look when I get home! Thanks for the laugh!
