How do I calculate my dog's BMI? ?

She's 1'3 and 30 pounds but 2'2 sitting up. 

Is that overweight for a dog?

    It depends on the type of dog but probably not.

    If you had of run this through google you would of found your answer & more. Do you want me to copy & paste the results of that search or do you want to do the google search on your own.

    Apparently there is a formula. Yeah, that part you were right about.

    I dont think its over weight because dogs always need a little fat to keep themselves warm and maybe when they sit with you to keep you warm too

    Ideally you should be able to feel the ribs, but not see them.   If you can't feel them even, then she's too fat.  I've never done this on the basis of BMI for a dog LOL.

    Be aware, that with some breeds with a 'well sprung ribcage' they tend to look fatter than the more 'slab-sided' breeds.

    Use her sitting up height. What does she weigh sitting up?

    Never heard of a BMI for dogs. If you can move your fingers along the dog's side using slight pressure and you can feel ribs, the dog's weight is okay. If you can easily see ribs without touching the dog, the dog is probably too thin, though some breeds tend to be naturally thin. If you can't feel ribs at all, or only feel them if you press hard, the dog is overweight.

    BMI for a dog is the weight in lbs / (length of the tail in mm)^2
