|Hey - I AM the runt! I am mixed with two other "smaller than Shih Tzu" breeds, BUT
I will be 3 months old on Christmas Eve. I am 12" long, 14" girth, and I weigh a full 7 lbs!
There is nothing wrong with having a runt, if that is what you happen to get. Someone has to love them, too. But it sounds to me as if your vet just wanted to show an "I know more than you do" attitude. I would definitely ask for your regular next time!
Oh, and my vet says some of us Tzus are just slow getting our teeth. I have hardly any so far, and soon it will be time for grownup teeth. As long as we eat good, who cares? At least the only thing I can destroy in the house is a catalogue!
