|Thanks for the responses!
It's just so strange with Sanka. He still goes on regular walks. Although, he wasn't able to completely finish today's walk for some strange reason. We had to take a 5 minute break in which he laid down in the middle of the road. lol. But it is kind of sad that these things are becoming more and more common.
For about 3 weeks now, I've stopped giving him his morning meal and just feed him 2 cups at night. I've always done this for the summer though as activity becomes almost nonexistent for Sanka then.
He just looks borderline pregnant to me. I wouldn't call him fat, but he looks chunky to me, and I do not want him to gain any weight, especially now. I saw first hand with my friend's dog what weight can do to a senior dog, and I do not want Sanka to go through that.
The only other thing I thought of was that he is still taking steroids. I've been tapering them off for the past few weeks, half a tablet every other day now. I suppose that could have something to do with it. I'll see if I can get a picture for ya'll to see as I'm biased lol.
