Not gaining weight?
Sabo is 47lbs and he's been holding steady there for the last three weeks. What's up with that? Why isn't he gaining weight? I have him on TOTW Puppy Salmon mixed with the Prairie and he gets approx 5 cups a day though eats about 3-4 total. I have pro biotics and digestive enzymes mixed in. His poops are healthy, we have eliminated the diarrhea, but he isn't gaining weight! He's approx 20inches at the shoulder and has grown an inch in the last two weeks. He just turned 19 weeks. He gets a TON of exercise, either running at the park with us for an hour or two a day or a mile- mile and a half walk/hike...daily. On top of running around with us and playing at home.
He is very well socialized and a great dog all around, but he just wont grow! He is a very pick eater but he does eat! Just not all of his food.
Is it the food? Should I change it yet again?
Other than making an appt with the vet (I am on the phone as I type) what else should I do? He will be 20 weeks on the 19th. Ears are up, he is teething though he has already lost a few teeth, his ears didn't even drop while he was teething!
