Obie the Obese Dachshund Seeking Diet Plan [VIDEO]


We all try to please our pets with the occasional treat but Obie, a dachshund in Portland, Oregon, apparently received spoiling way beyond reason. At 70 pounds Obie is more than twice his recommended weight which is why a local veterinary tech, Nora Vanetta, has begun a Facebook page to support her efforts to get Obie back to a more normal and more healthy weight.

The Huffington Post reports that Obie’s elderly owners were no longer able to care for the overfed canine and he was turned in to a veterinary clinic for treatment. The treatment sounds like something out of “The Biggest Loser”.

Obie is still in fairly good health; however, he cannot engage in regular exercise. He  has been introduced to a special hydrotherapy regime. When he loses a little weight, a treadmill will be added to his workout routine.

There is old saying “killing with kindness” that seems to apply to Obie and we can only hope he can start enjoying an active, healthy dog’s life soon. Take a look at Nora’s video and then follow the above link if you’d like to help.
