My collie is being treated for a bladder infection She also has a mass on her bladder and will be getting an ultrasound soon She weighs 91 lbs and said I need to put her on a diet She has always eaten twice a day and gets very few snacks how did she get so overweight Could this be related to her bladder problem?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is your dog's name and age?

Molly and she will be 8yrs old on July 8th

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Molly?

I can not think of anything but I didnot not ask this question

Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 2 months ago

Bladder infections and masses in the bladder do not typically cause obesity. What food are you currently feeding her? How much is she being given TOTAL per day? Has your vet checked a thyroid panel on her recently?

No but they have been taking care of her bladder infection
Is there any other problems causing weight gain She doesn’t always get the exercise she should as I have problems with my feet

I'll need answers to all of my questions to be able to offer you the most help. Was your "no" to them checking a thyroid panel?

What food are you currently feeding her? How much is she being given TOTAL per day?​
