I am sorry to hear you are worried about Hank, and I am, too.

He needs to have this "rectal prolapse" replaced as soon as possible. Then tests should be done to find out why this happened, and why he is not gaining weight. He may have intestinal parasites causing this problem but the lack of weight gain in a large breed puppy is very worrying to me.

If you lift his lip to check his gums, do they look pink or pale?

They are the same color as his sister
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

That is very good. Is his sister gaining weight?

She is. He eats and wags his tail but you can tell he is hurting
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

He needs to get that prolapse replace as soon as possible, and to be tested for internal parasites.

If his sister is growing and he is not, I am concerned about a possible congenital problem in him.
