Default Re: Newly Diagnosed, having issues

I can tell you from owning several Siberians, that they are prone to diabetes and obesity. They love to eat and well its gets the better of them and leads to diabetes. A typical female should weigh 35-50lbs and male about 55-65 but then again there are variations in heights of these dogs. Ive noticed Siberian females put on weight easily after being spayed.

As Jessegirl mentioned I also feared a thyroid problem but his T4 was ok and in my case I was able to get him to shed off a few lbs in a month with extra walks and cutting his intake by 400 calories. But a T4 test on the CBC will identify a thyroid issue.
