so, our lab is pretty thin. To a point were our new trainer had us worried about being reported etc!
Now we don't think we have anything to worry about should we actually get reported - he's the most pampered pooch ever!
However, the fact remains he's thin.
We don't overwalk him
We don't over exercise him
We've tried different foods
Different Times of Food
Different quantities of food
Putting water on it
keeping it dry
Praying over it!
The only thing that gets him to eat it is to grate cheese on it, or put chicken on it.
He LOVES chicken and rice but surely he can't live on that? to be honest he's happy enough with purely rice!
We tried porridge - didn't eat it
He's so fussy it's mad. We struggle to get him to eat most days. He gets in the packet recommended amount but it's tough.
Help! We've been to the vets but they aren't overly concerned, just suggested he's thin and don't worry - but hey! we're puppy parents and of course worry. I would like to put some more meat on his bones especially as we're wanting to train him more this year (last year was an issue - operation and he got attacked by another dog)
any ideas? I'll cook him chicken every meal if that's what he needs. I just want to keep him healthy.
