Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Memphis. Is he a pretty active dog? When was he last seen by your vet? Is he urinating more? What do his stools look like?
How long ago did your vet last see Memphis? Did they feel that she was in good body condition the last time they saw her?
Could he be losing the weight as he's more active? Some will move into new environments where their activity level increases and thus weight is kept off better.
Ok. If there is less activity and a great appetite with weight loss, then the issue gets brought up as to what may be going on. I'll be honest and say that in this situation, a physical exam, some blood work and a urine evaluation are absolutely key in starting to figure out this puzzle. They allow many things to be ruled out or in. Do you have a new vet in your area that you can get her to so they can start with this work up?
