My question was about diet as well. 1 percent if awfully low. Small dogs usually are on the upper end of 3% of their weight. Exercising is going to increase her need for food. Can you see her ribs? When you touch her at her ribs, are they very easily felt? Dogs do need some fat on them to be healthy (not talking obese here, but dogs do need fat in general). Only if you have medical conditions, such as pancreatitis, or perhaps diabetes, do you need to severly cut back on fat..
How old is she? What exactly are you feeding her in terms of meat,carbs, veggies (how are they prepared) and supplements. Are you giving bone or calcium if not feeding commercial food that has this in there already? If bone, how much (repeating Ryan), if calcium, then what type of calcium and how much ((really looking for the amount of mg per day)). Any vitamin/mineral mixes if home feeding, etc?
