Keep your dogโ€™s weight in the right range for their breed with this chart that shows the optimum weight for over 200 different breeds.

Keeping your dog’s weight in the right range is very important when it comes to making sure your pet is healthy and happy. It's also helpful for knowing what dosage of preventative medication they need, like Sentinel for dogs. That’s why we’ve developed the chart below, which shows the optimum weight for over 200 different breeds. Use it as a rough guideline of where your pet's weight should be.

Here’s an easy way to tell if your dog is overweight or underweight: Use your hands to try to feel their ribs. If your dog is overweight, it will be hard to feel the bone underneath your pet’s flesh. If your dog is underweight, the ribs will feel sharp to the touch and will be distinctly visible. You may be able to see the indentation of a healthy dog’s ribs, but you should not be able to count each one. Check out this visual dog weight chart to see if your dog is a healthy weight.

Feed your pet healthy food and make sure they exercise to maintain a health weight.
