2 Pounds Of Loose Skin Removed From Fat Oregon Dog

Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Obie the formerly obese dachshund is recovering after surgery at an Oregon veterinary clinic that removed 2 1/2 pounds of loose skin.
    
Owner Nora Vanatta told KGW the surgery this week at the Emergency Veterinary Clinic of Tualatin went well.
    
The loose skin was dragging after the dog lost 40 pounds in eight months on a diet. Obie had weighed 77 pounds. He was down to 37 before the surgery. He now weighs about 35 pounds and Vanatta wants him to lose about 5 more.
    

Obie fans have been following his weight loss on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/BiggestLoserDoxieEdition .
