    DefaultQuestion - weight-loss speed in dogs

    I know that humans can safely lose 1 - 2 lbs a week. Does anybody know what a respectable/healthy weight loss rate is for dogs - specifically labs?

    same as humans is fine, 3-6 lbs/month would be good IMO

    Same as a human .. Just a few pounds a week.. Even one pound a week or one pound every other week is good for a lab.. breed was "overweight" and I asked the same ? to my vet.. thats what she told me....
