He's so thin, you can feel every bone through his medium length coat.
Pancreatitis: no symptoms of loose stools, other than initial upset with all the 'bulk' new good ingredients, but fine within 4 days. No evidence of pain, discomfort. Seems happy.
Hyperthyroidism: no excessive drinking, not rapid weight loss, just steady weight loss since we got the pig, i mean pup. Never been a ravenous eater, but not fussy at all, he'll eat whatever i chose to give him, as he knows he's got 10 minutes before i lift his bowl. Bernie has always had low food drive.
As both of these conditions require full blood exams. Im going to give satin balls till next week, then off to vet methinks.
I hate the vet visits. Always so scared of what they will find.
Newfie, is a 4 week trial of satin balls sufficient for the effective weight gain, or should i go a little longer.
He seriously stinks on this stuff, and was looking in better shape prior. (could be suggestive of pancreatitis, as they need a low fat diet, and this is sooo high fat!)
