Springer Spaniel Weight Query

(South staffs)

My black and White springer full dog is a fantastic, 100%fit and very strong and muscular, he is 24kg and vet says he perfect, I'm worried because you can sort of see his ribs ( my other 2 springers are a little better covered, they have chicken and rice chappie complete in the morning and the same at night with a tin of wet food, they are all worked and perfect heathy.... Can anyone suggest a supplement or something to put little biddy bit of weight on xxxx

Hi there
Its common to see their ribs, think of them as edurance atheletes, they don't tend to have much meat on them.

What I would recommend is a hypoallergenic food, as they need all the nutrients they can get, especially active ones such as Burns Active or underweight Dog Food

Good luck
