I'm new to the forums, and signed up because I am worried about my Jack Russel Terrier, Bandit. She's going to be five years old in September. I don't know exactly how much she weighs now, but I do know she would be consisdered "obese."
For the better half of her life, she has been rather pudgy, but now its getting to a point where she won't go for walks anymore and just lies down all day. Everybody in my house tries to get her out, but she rarely wants to walk.
She's been on diet food for maybe two or three years now and it doesn't seem to work, even when she would go for regular walks.
I know part of the problem is people in my house feeding her table scraps, myself and my sister are the only ones who refuse to do so as we think it's only contributing to the problem that everyone is so "worried" about.
I'd liketo know what can be done about this, its getting to a point where I am fearing for her life.
