“Eaten” 88 kilograms of Labrador was put on a diet in Chelyabinsk
In Chelyabinsk, local zoodefenders decided to help the Labrador, which due to malnutrition has reached an almost unprecedented size for its breed. The weight of the dog at the time of taking custody of it by the founders of the LABRICO help center was 88 kilograms. A dog named Hammer was transported to the city from Ufa. The previous owners did not fight for the pet and wanted to put him to sleep. Caring residents of Chelyabinsk decided to save the animal and take care of it, as well as its health. The girls said that they were shocked by the size of the dog when they met him in person. According to them, it took two adults to transport the dog. “Not a single photo, not a single video reproduces his true dimensions. It’s just huge, ”the animal rights activists admitted on the VKontakte social network. Hammer was immediately taken to the veterinarian for a checkup. The labrador’s tests turned out to be in order, but the extra weight gave complications to the heart. Currently, the girls are actively losing weight on the dog and are already noticing the first successes. Earlier, the dog handler said that cold weather can cause more frequent colds in dogs due to long walks. The specialist recommended protecting the animals from drafts and, if possible, putting on overalls on the street.
