What is BCS?
BCS, is Body Condition Score. It’s a way to determine how fit/lean or overweight/obese your dog may be. This is crucial in determining how many calories to feed per day.
Many dog owners may not know what a fit dog actually looks like because unfortunately, we are usually used to seeing most dogs overweight. And many people may label a fit dog as “too skinny” when in fact they are optimal weight.
Keeping a dog at a healthy lean weight is CRUCIAL to their long term health.
Through our endeavor, I was able to shave a whopping 17lbs off of my dog when we switched from kibble to Raw Keto. At the time, I never thought my dog was overweight as that was just the way I was used to seeing her that way. Below is a picture of her now after that dramatic weight loss. It’s like a totally different dog. Learn more on the perils of high carbohydrate kibble diets here
