So I noticed the other day when I put the harness dress on Zoey that she seems to be losing muscle/fat on her chest. Does she look too skinny to you? Do I need to increase her food? She is getting about 2 oz of food per day. She weighs the exact same 4.5# as she did when I started raw, but she had a lot more 'padding' then. You can't see her ribs except at the bottom/underneath then you can count them. You can also feel her backbone but you can't see it.

Side View (Can you tell she's peeved at me for making her 'nekkid'?) She doesn't feel well at all tonight.

She looks good to me. :) They do loose fat which is replaced by lean muscle with raw. If she is the same weight I'd not worry. All my pups (except Marley & Maya--both whom needed to gain) lost some weight. With Mari & Matilda they lost a whole pound but didn't look any different. Maxie lost almost 2lbs & Milo 3lbs. I never thought my pups were overweight (except Milo--but because that's what the vet said LOL) but looking back they look much better now!

Anyway, I guess pups show their changes differently. Like I said Zoey looks like she's a healthy weight. Its probably just her muscle and fat definition changing. :)

Thanks guys, I guess I am just getting weirded out because she's always had a thick layer of pudge on her chest/rib cage/back :)

I think she looks good too. I think she's about at the perfect weight. Raw causes muscle definition and they lose that roly poly pudge they had on kibble. I would maintain her at this weight. :)
