Gambit lost another pound, putting him at 31.5. He's so thin that it breaks my heart. I'm starting to actually be afraid of someone calling AC on me, and I can't say that they wouldn't be justified.
This dog has been too thin since I got him. At first I thought he was a normal weight, but he was just bloated from the gross kibble he was on. He should be about 35 lbs at the minimum, and I don't think he's ever been over 33.
I don't know what else to do. He's currently eating 1.5lbs of raw, a cup of kibble and a can of dog food if he'll eat it every single day. He gets coconut oil in his food. He always eats his raw. Most of the time he eats the kibble. He eats the canned food maybe 30% of the time. He gets plenty of treats and snacks throughout the day, and of course he eats those right up.
I have tried going to kibble only, and it didn't help. He didn't gain any weight and he looked like crap. Dry coat, itchy, just not as nice as he looked on raw.
I tried satin balls, and he did gain weight on them. But he didn't hold the weight when I took him off of them, and I'm afraid to keep him on something so high fat long term.
He has had bloodwork done, and everything came back normal. His poops are small and firm, no gas or digestive upsets. I even took him off of his Prozac, to see if that was causing the problem, and nothing changed. On the upside, his behavior didn't noticeably deteriorate either, so we didn't put him back on it.
The thing is, he's healthy. He never gets sick, never has a digestive upset, always brimming with energy and sparkle. He seems perfectly content, but how can he be healthy when he looks like a skeleton?
The vet is looking into things, but nothing is coming up. He just doesn't have any real physical signs of anything.
