I just wanted to post an update on Holly’s diet.
I am over the moon to announce she is below 600g! 580g to be precise.
I can’t thank you enough for spending the time to help me with her diet. I’m sure I’ll be back to pick your brains if progress stalls.

The more she looses the more she will likely become more active.
To be honest with my Holly as she lost weight she became more active nut I left her food the same, and its worked well for her anyway.
Not saying it will for you but I would be very careful about increasing food because its not easy to tell when they are going to be more active and less active.

She is down to 607g. She put on 4g last week but down 18g this week. She was 644g 5 weeks ago. Obviously I want her to lose some but I want it to be at a healthy rate.
I did wonder if we could play with her food a little and when she is more active give a little more food and reduce when less active. That’s on the assumption the increased activity is a phase.

|Ria||Maybe stop reducing things a few weeks to stable it and then keep doing that every so often so that it doesnt go too fast!|

I missed your other post, but I'm glad your finally making progress!
I was told 20g maximum a week is healthy anything over they are losing too much too fast.

Finally after all this time and all your help I am able to say we are loosing weight and have started to use the wheel more.
Holly has done so for the last 3 weeks, I’m so proud. However, how many grams a week are heathy for her to loose?
Thank you for all your advice.

I thought I’d update on how we are going with the diet.
We have just completed the first week of the complete change to the mix, so we are now on 80% Applaws, 20% James Wellbeloved. We are still putting on weight but I am also aware I’m a couple of weeks early on when I was supposed to check back in with progress so we may still be settling in to new food. She is still coming out looking for food during the day although that does seem to be less frequently. However this week her activity has slipped a little and she has done a little less mileage.
Now the food is switched I am on to reducing the extras and kibble she is given and I think I have come up with a plan to do this while making her daily volume of food a little more stable than it currently is as we have some days where I’m offering more food than others. E.g mince or veg then a day with neither.
Currently we are having over a two week period:
My new idea is to alternate fruit/veg and mince each day but at the same time reducing the amount of each given, so one day 3g mince, the next 2g fruit/veg. By my workings out this will mean a more stable volume of food on a daily basis while at the same time reducing the overall quantity given.
It will look something like this over a two week period:
This reduces her intake 15g over the two weeks whilst giving her the pretty much the same volume of food each day, I’m also hoping it will make the reduction less noticeable for her.
I then plan on reducing the actual kibble amount once I’ve change the snacks over.
Does this sound like a viable plan?
Thanks in advance
