My husband and I just started to foster Beauty. Those working in the rescue were concerned because her appetite had died down badly while in the kennel. They figured she was becoming depressed and lethargic at the kennel.
I can see her ribs and I'm concerned. I want to get her healthy and happy again. I'm taking her on daily walks (she needs some obedience training) and I'm currently feeding her 4 cups of food a day.
The problem is, I don't know what she SHOULD weigh or what she ACTUALLY weighs. I'm thinking about getting her to the vet just to see what she weighs in at but for those who have TRC's, what is a healthy weight for them? Should you see their ribs/hips if they are well fed and healthy?
I want to make sure I'm not worrying needlessly if she IS a healthy weight. If she's not, I want to make sure I increase her food at a safe level (so she doesn't gorge and make herself sick.
