    • Thanks! Please spread the word.

      Trixie- summer bikini season is fast approaching. Time to lose a few lbs!

  2. I have an Android phone, not at iPhone, so I can’t get the SlimDoggy app 🙁 I like this widget, but I wish it included a goal weight field. One of my sweet ones needs to lose weight, and I don’t know if the calorie needs produced by the widget are taking into account that that she needs to lose, not maintain her current weight. Advice?

    • Hi Pam. Great question. While we build the Android version I recommend using the widget and inputting your dog’s target weight into the calculator. This will provide you with a realistic estimate. But that is only step 1. Step 2 is to use 75-85% of this value as the feeding target which is a vet recommended strategy for a safe weight loss approach. We do all of this in the App of course.

      • Terrific, thanks! I can handle that. Looking forward to the app for Android.

  3. Sorry to sound so dumb, but how do I get the widget to work on my blog? I use WordPress, but I can’t figure out what type or category of widget yours fits into. I tried using the “text” widget, but it doesn’t work.

  4. Your app is amazing but I wish you could figure out and add the calories for individual ingredients like a cup of applesauce, etc. for those who make their own food and treats.

    • Do you add them by hand now? We would love to add human foods so that home cooks could get a better handle on calories. We will look into what this will take from a software development perspective. If there are lists publicly available (through APIs), all the better!
