|Muscle loss, in my experience, has never been a good thing. If your dog is eating the normal amount and still losing weight then I would advise an immediate vet visit. I do not know, or think, that arthritis can cause muscle loss. I don't want to alarm you or be negative, and it may be something else, but when my dog, Mama, started losing muscle mass around her spine, we soon found out she had the late stages of cancer and we lost her a few days later. I also knew someone that needed my advice with their cat. When I went to see her, she lost a lot of muscle mass and I told her she needed a vet NOW. Sadly, she was put to sleep that same day.
I hope nothing is wrong but I wanted to warn you that this situation should be dealt with urgency. Keep us updated.
