Did your senior stud lose alot of weight?

Hercules has lost 10lb since last year. From 85 to 75. I think the lighter weight helps his joints but hope not a sign of trouble.
Should I start supplementing his diet with salmon oil?

Rocky's not a stud; he's neutered. But he has lost about 10 pounds in the last year. It's mostly muscle loss in his hind end.

Bud has lost weight in the last year, as you said mostly in his hind legs. He is 13.5 though so I expect some decline. I have just recently changed his diet a bit as he was getting a bit thin, but he also has dental issues which his vet has declined to treat at his age. She just gave us some antibiotics.
