7 month old springer - is he too thin?
Our 7 month old springer - Stan - is a very active pup. He does not stand still for a minute. He gets three meals of junior active food each day but we are worried that he is too thin. Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
If he was a teenage boy he would be'lanky'. He has muscels in his chest, shoulders, legs as he gets plenty of exercise, but his waist seems pinched and you can see his rib cage when he moves about. We are not sure if he is just growing and will fill out over time or if he is just burning off his calories too quickly. It seems that we feed him, he is then filled with more energy and runs around non stop.
We are hoping it is nothing serious. Think it might be wise to get him checked out by the vet, or are we worrying too much?
Make sure he is wormed as he may be eating well but if he has worms he won't get the nutriton. You have him on an active food which is good and he is eating. You may want to get the vet to check him over just to be sure there is nothing else wrong with him.
