He definitely looks to be in better shape with his weight. Good job with that!

Thanks! I think he could stand to lose a little more but overall I think he is nowhere near as bad as in the first video.

He's adorable! Ask your vet about giving him MSM. I've seen it help several

Update

Finally got in to see the vet I wanted, he gave him a thorough check up including his back legs. I mentioned my concern, he said he couldn't feel anything wrong with them but he does want to X-ray him... So I'm going to get him X-ray'd when I get him neutered which will be sometime between 6 months and a year of age, probably sooner then later since he lives with a large neutered male.

The vet also said he liked his body condition(I can now feel his ribs) and that I've been doing a good job of keeping him growing nice and slow. He is 47lbs and he will be 5 months old next week!

So overall a good visit

He also has an umbilical hernia which I discovered the first day I brought him home so this will probably affect him getting neutered a little earlier then I originally thought... I'd rather get all of it taken care of in one go then put him through multiple surgeries.

I have a 6 year old girl who has an umbilical hernia. I never bred her, I never spayed her, It has never been a problem. I think that I would neuter your boy when you want to, I don't think I would do it sooner because of an umbilical hernia.

True, I'm probably just being paranoid... Mostly I'm just worried how my neutered golden will react to him when he's matured and still intact(right now they are BFF's).
