  1. Underweight and Not Eating

    Dog Health
    Hi Everyone, 4 days ago I adopted an 11-week old Golden Retriever pup. On the car ride home he was really mellow and just slept like a baby the entire time. The next day he still continued to sleep for majority of the day and didn't do much. I just thought it was due to stress of being taken...
  2. Body-wt vs "Condition" - fit isn't a number...

    Dog Health
    People often confuse a dog's weight with her or his fitness - but the 2 are very different. :) Posting "my dog weighs X-pounds, is s/he in good shape?" is rather like asking how tall is a tree, how wide is a door, or how long is a road - purebred dogs will fall within a certain range...

    I think my dog is perfect for his size i've had a few people tell me he is skinny, including my Dad. Most of these people have overweight dogs themselves but I want my dog to be completely healthy not too skinny or too large. The vet has never mentioned anything apart from saying he is very...
