Fat Neck and Gut

Post by ChiefClark61 » Mon Jan 20, 2020 1:27 am

Our York is about 23 days out from the show. Gaining well and looking good. Good top and square front to back and good and wide out back. The problem is, he is a little fat in the jowels and his gut is hanging a little low. Anything I can do at this point to tighten him up a little bit?

Fitter 52 from Purina. Is fast acting and targets those areas. Check the posts from KGB about the feed recommendations.

So I don’t want him to gain a ton more. His weight gain is right on track. So if I replace 1 pound per day of my current feed with the fitter 52 would that give me the desired result of cutting the jowl fat but allowing him to stay on track to make the weight I am aiming for? I would love to see KGB respond for some assurance but I don’t have any idea if there is a way to tag him or message him directly.

I did respond to your PM. Fitter 52 is not going to cause an increase in weight gain. (It is not Paylean)
