when is pitbull considered overwieght

when would you consider a true pitbull terrier is over wieght some people i know will say 70plus pounds is overwieght for a pitbull. but i have seen pitbulls that may wiegh like 75 pounds but they are nothing but muscle and are just gret looking american pitbulls i have also seen 70 plus pits who dont look all that fat but are definately lackibng muscle tone would that be considered over weight or better yet obese for a pitbull.

to me if a pitb ull is 70 plus pounds and has no muscle mass or very little the dog is overwieght. a pit should be around 40 to 60 pounds depending on gender. i also know hieght plays a role in wieght as well. but personally i think 65 to seventy is just pushing it that is if your dog is not active and has no muscle defantion at all.

(i am not dragging american bullies into this i know they are lot heavier and usually 100 plus pound or from about at least 75 to 100 this is stricktly for american pitbull terrier standards)

I believe that if you cannot see at least 2 ribs on an APBT, then he/she is overweight. JMO.

See the dog weight chart for reference:

you can't say a specific weight as dogs' have different proportions, but this chart shows what a healthy weight should look like

Yeah that is going to vary according to each dog but I would say a dog is overweight when it is 10-12lbs over conditioned weight.

I thought that Stevie Rae my sons pitbull was over weight but my vet said that if you run a hand over their side and you can feel the ribs they are perfect. he said you want your dog to have this weight instead of seeing the ribs so if heaven forbid they get sick they don't go down hill so fast becasue they have a little weight on them. I don't know sounds like a good idea.

in my opinion a pit bull is overweight when it doesnt have a tuck up behind the rib cage, and when the ribs are not immediately obvious when you run your hand over the sides. When viewed from above, there should be an indentation where the ribs meet the rest of the body, if that is absent the dog is overweight.
