OUR DOG IS PRETTY SKINNY WHAT COULD BE THE REASON

Dr. Kruger,

Our dog is pretty skinny, what could be the reason? Thanks,

Hi Van,

There are certainly many possibilities for a dog to be thin. Check for worms with your Vet first. It may be an enzyme deficiency so the food does not get digested. Your dog may not be absorbing the nutrients you feed. Some dogs have chronic bacterial infections. A blood study can reveal this along with other abnormalities internal. You might consider getting a jar of my supplement (Everyday Health) as it is designed to help digest food and help with the absorption of nutrients. Hope this helps.
