The ribs can be seen then narrows to midsection then out again to hind quarters. Her backbone is not protruding. Today I just broke down and got some iams soft canned food and added teasp to her dry food and she ate it all. I know controversy about dry vs wet food. I have started using soft finger tooth brush to brush teeth this month. I was told to brush 3 times wk.
Izzy is doing great with small amount of canned dog food mixed in with her dry food. She is eating well and likes it!! I appreciated your reply and showed it to my son who also has a mini dachshund who is slightly above his ideal weight. Thank you for the web site link. I also completed the rating "excellent service" .
