|If you are concerned you could run her by the vet for a quick check. My min pin x Zoe was 28lbs and the vet said she could loss a few pounds, so I put her on a diet...she is now 19lbs and prefect I do feel sometimes she is too skinny, but the vet says she looks great. We also were feeding NVI and Zoe eats 1/4c twice a day...but if she eats more than that she starts gaining weight back...but my 2 little ones tend to feed the dogs more because they are constantly wanting to "train" them..the dogs enjoy it because they get lots of food( we use their dog food). The feeding guidelines are just that, so if you feel your pup could benefit from more food, up it slightly and see if she looks better that way. I prefer to keep my pups on the skinnier side..I can feel most of their ribs especially when they are laying on their side. I do weigh my pups often, most I can weigh at home so I can keep an eye on the 2 that gain really fast...I also have two cats that have been battling the bulge..I feel like that are skin and bones but the vet says still another pound or two to go they went from 20lbs to 10lbs.
Was the weight loss really fast? I think Zoe lost hers over a years time, maybe a bit more than that. I know that cats has been 2 yrs now. I would be more concerned if she lost it really quickly.
