Cindy, my Sedona was over 19 lbs at one point. The vet said she definitely needed to lose weight. I fed her according to the guidelines on the kibble but followed the amount she should have at her ideal weight. We also cut treats down to one per day (except on special occasions) and I bought low calorie treats. She lost weight slowly and safely. At her last vet appointment she weighed 15.7 lbs and the vet said she was now racing greyhound thin (yikes!) so I have upped her intake so that she will be right in the 16 16.5 lb range which he thought would be perfect for her. I did the same for my Sheltie who was very overweight when we adopted her.
