Putting a little weight on a pup??
Posted 23 March 2012 - 08:27 PM
I have never had to "fatten" up a dog before, just the opposite.
Does anyone have a suggestions on what I can feed him that will help?

All cases I have seen where people were thinking their healthy dogs needed to be fatter they were actually at a very fine weight.
But I do like my dogs lean.

I too like my dogs lean, but I just think this is too much. People often comment on Belle that they think she is too thin...but she's just fine.
I guess I'll wait a while longer and see if he changes, then address it again.

Is he a rather large boy? My bc girl is on the bigger side (47 pounds) and she gets two cups per day (also TOTW at the moment). She is "sport fit." She's also built more like a greyhound than a border collie....

And yes, both of these dogs were too thin...even from my vet who thinks my other 9 border collies are the only correct weight dogs she has!
The age has something to do with it to. I've found the boy dogs at around 9 months start to look like boneracks...
The other one we had to put weight on had lost weight around her skull as well, that tells me they are truley skinny and not just thin
