Obie the dachshund, the fattest dog in the world, is on diet! | Dogalize
Obie is the name of the dachshund that some time ago was billed as "the fattest dog in the world" because he presented an obvious overweight of 35 kilos.
Obie was owned by a couple of elders who could not give him the active life that a dachshund needs, pleasing him giving him food and treats, so the dog weighed 35 kilos and was on the verge of death.
Obie was almost twice the weight he should have been and this fact made walking difficult and painful because his stomach touched the ground. Seeing the damage caused to him, the couple decided to give him to their vet, who did the whole weight loss treatment.
Obie finally lost weight entering a new diet combined with increased daily physical activity and even started swimming.
After the extreme loss of weight, the dog had to undergo surgery to remove skin in excess that remained in his body.
Today, Obie is in his ideal weight being 10 kg; the dachshund has resumed its natural shape and has become famous with his facebook page.
A very pleasant story for the puppy, who finally lives his life as he should have done for years.
So you see we all have hope!
