Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

How much does he weigh?

What does your vet estimate he should weigh?

About how much dry food does he eat?

Has he had routine blood work done recently?
