My 8th month old Springer seems underweight?
by Allison Blythe
My 8 month old male springer weighs 11.5kg, he appears underweight, his rib cage is visible and you can feel all his bones. He is on a natural dried food Lamb and Rice with no wheat or soya in it, but does on average about 6 poo's a day! He is always hungry, I have recently put him on a higher protein diet for underweight dogs which is all natural again. He is very active on walks and will go forever and seems happy enough. But I am concerned about his weight and amount that comes out the other end on a daily basis.. Any thoughts, suggestions.....

Is he wormed regularly? That may be causing him to be underweight.
