Ugh.. I have decided my "little" boy is anorexic.. .. ..
I know everybody says dogs won't starve themselves and I believe that, but Kosmo keeps losing weight and if he loses anymore I will be worried about him.
Linda says her sacle is 2lbs off and he weighed in at 16.2 on Saturday - which would put him at 14.2.. coming from somebody that used to be a solid 16 (and looking good) that's a lot of weight.
He looks somewhere between the first cavalier picture and the second cavalier picture on Laura Lang's feeding page, but the first cavalier looks to have a broader chest than Kos - he's just thin all the way down.
I don't think he's really eating any less, but with Faith and the weather getting nice I think he's just exercising more.
We have a vet appt in about another month or so and I will ask her what she thinks then.. I don't think he's too skinny right now as we speak, but if he loses any more I think he's going to be on the line..
Typically he eats about 1/4 cup a day or every other day.. (yikes, I know) He's always offered 1/2 cup. (1/4 in the morning and 1/4 in the evening)
He doesn't like other kinds of dog food than Evo and God Forbid I even try that route right now with this recall going on.
HMM so what to do with a fussy borderline anorexic dog?! Should it come to that are there any good tips on getting Cavaliers to gain weight?
