Lost 6 kgs weight in 2 months

by Mandeep
(India)

My dog is Boxer breed and he is 1 year old.

In the past he was having allergies so I changed his diet to home cooked, with the help of a dog nutritionist. Now, after detox process and diet change, he has lost weight and looks like a malnourished boy. Everyone points it out, and it hurts to see him like this.

He is always hungry. He wants to eat everything he finds on walks. My vet is unable to find anything wrong with him. What should I do now?

Please help.
Every help is appreciated.

Your Boxer's Weight Loss Response #2
by: Sandra

Hi again,

Well, it seems that between you, your nutritionist and your vet, all is being done, that can be done and you have increased portions.

So, I would simply carry on, Mandeep. Surely as time passes, your dog will put on some weight and you can stop worrying.

Why not give it a few more months to see what happens? Try not to be upset by the comments from other people. Simply tell them your dog is recovering from an illness.

Keep me posted. I'd be interested to hear how you're progressing.

My Boxer's Weight Loss
by: Mandeep

Hello Sandra,

I already increased his diet after consulting with my nutritionist. Still he is not gaining weight. I tried different meat and even vet has done blood test and ultrasound. Everything seems normal.

What should I do now

Your Boxer's Weight Loss
by: Sandra

Hello Mandeep,

It sounds to me as if your dog is doing well after the diet change. However, the picture you sent of him does show that he is indeed, very, very thin.

He is still young. Most young dogs are lean and trim and so they should be, but not THAT thin.

Also, healthy dogs are always hungry and ready to eat anytime, anywhere, but it does seem as if your dog needs more food.

Why don't you simply feed him more?

Start slow, and build up his portions over the course of a month. I'm sure he'll gain weight and you will feel better about how he looks.

Where's the harm in that? There's no harm in feeding your dog more, if he appears to need it.
