This question has to do with owning a thin boxer. My boxer boy is about a year old now. He seems to be so thin. His ribs seem to be visible as well as his back bone at times. He does seem to eat okay, although I would classify him as a picky eater. He enjoys Milk Bones, Mother Hubbard Bones, as well as Home made bones for treats. I am feeding him Wellness Puppy Formula-contains all human grade ingredients no preservatives or additives. His vet recommended I continue giving him puppy kibble for awhile longer since it has extra fat and protein in it's ingredients.
I have tried different types of kibble (in the past) and even home cooked for him for about 10 months. I have had him checked over by our vet, his physical and checks for worms have all been negative. Should I perhaps get them to check his thyroid? All of my other boxers are within their weight range or just alittle over. His energy level is about average and he sleeps well.
Any suggestions would be greatly appre
This might be the way he is and the way his metabolism functions. If he has had a clean bill of health from your vet then I would not worry. I do recommend a general blood test but he does not need a throid test b/c dogs do not suffer from hyperthyroidism. vetcare
