'Today a friend showed me a picture of a terribly fat podenca adopted in the US. I felt so sorry for the poor dog because I could see it was not a happy healthy dog.
Podencos and galgos are light weight dogs, their bones are not built to carry lots of extra weight. Podencos and Galgos need to show at least 2 ribs, should not have any fat bellies and a slim waist line. If you want to show them love, don't do it with food, take them for long hikes or play with your hounds at the dog park etc.
You don't do your dog a favor by overfeeding it. He will have soon very very painful arthritis, diabetes, heart issues etc and we all know that obese dogs have a much shorter life span. Keep your dogs slim and healthy by giving them as a treat a nice walk instead of a cookie.
FAT DOGS CAUSE FAT VETERINAY BILLS'
