Is my buddy too thin. Hes only 6 months but he ways a TON. Hes about 75 lbs right now but hes a super lean boy? And What can I do to bulk him up a bit if he is? Im considering high protein food?
That's where the expression "feed the dog in front of you comes from"our breeder was panicked at that statistic that our pup was 64 pounds at 5 months and told us to cut back on his food. Alarmed, I took him to the vet that day and the vet checked him out and said, if anything he's too lean. From that experience, I gathered that you can't go by stats alone. a skilled eye and hand need to examine the dog. in our case, the vet said he's got a really heavy skeleton (thick bones) and he's got a large skeleton, but in terms of fat, he's lean. the vet suggested that we continue to feed him according to the bag (Farmina N&D Ancestral Grain - is 4 cups a day). the vet agreed that you can cause issues by over feeding, but similarly, you can cause issues by under nourishing. so 4 cups a day we continue.
