My girl is 17 weeks today, and im concerned about her weight. I had her at the vet two weeks ago and asked about her weight, but they didn't act concerned. She does not have worms, she's had her two doses and had a fecal test two weeks ago to confirm. But I'm still worried. She weighs about 2.25-2.5 lbs (she was 2.25 a couple weeks ago) and you can see her ribs and feel her hip bones when you pet her. I feed her 3-4 times a day and she also gets treats. She IS very hyper and active, always on the go and silly, so I'm thinking maybe she's just burning all her calories? Is this her build? I would feel better if others also had skinny, fine boned chihuahuas, my late chi was a barrel chested round bodied boy, ands maybe I'm comparing her to him too much. Oh, and she eats a vet approved diet that I make myself, it contains brown rice, veggies, fruit, meat, anchovies with oil, and olive oil. So. Does anyone else have a very skinny chihuahua? Am I worrying too much, or is my vet not worrying enough? Here are a couple pictures when I got her and one of her now so you can see how she's changed. I have another, better current picture, but I can't find it, I'll post it when I do.
