What is the average life span for an overweight cocker spaniel. I am working on her diet and exercise.

Hello and Welcome to Just Answer!

The average life span of a healthy cocker spaniel is 12-15 years. When a dog is obese, or over weight it can take anywhere from 3-5 years off the life expectancy so your looking at 9-10 years as the average life span of a overweight cocker spaniel.


Getting her more active, and increasing veggies in the diet is a excellent way to manage weight in your girl.
