My springer spaniels are thin
hi....as a springer spaniel owner I see many a 'stocky' springer, I have 2 springers, whose pics are in ur puppy gallery. Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
The problem is they are now 17 months old and very thin. They are not fed a certain amount each day but have james wellbeloved on tap, as well as naughty tit bits.
They have both been 'done' and so should be putting on weight. They still cant walk...only run..and so I think that maybe they run off so many calories then this is the answer, but equally...they are working dogs and Ive never met another springer that looks like them.
Dont get me wrong they arent emaciated, but they look slim rather than the stocky looking springer pics im used to, ...any ideas?
ps in terms of exrcise I 'dawdle' for 2 hours a day with they run so much that people stop and stare/comment on their energy levels
First well done on giving them that amount of exercise, they must be very happy springers!!!
Have you tried the active dog foods? James Wellbeloved is great food, but try the Burns dog food, they do a Canine Active food. Its designed for working dogs, and as yours are out for 2hrs a day they may need more calories.
You can order online and they deliver, they are a great brand of food, George loves it!!!!
