One of the most touchy subjects we deal with is telling clients that their pets are overweight. They don't want to hear it, and they sure don't want to do what needs to be done to fix it. For most people, feeding their dog less, just isn't an option.
Today, a couple came in with their large breed dog, who actually has been on a diet. The wife proudly told us that her dog had lost 2 pounds.
The husband, apparently unimpressed, promptly took the wind right out of her sails.
"That dog losing 2 pounds, is like throwing a lawn chair off a cruise ship!"
