Dante on the Small Side
Dante at 8 weeks
I got Dante at 7 weeks from a woman whose dogs had puppies and she did not want them.
She told me he is full blooded. However, at 7 weeks he weighed only 5 lbs. He has had soft stools with diarrhea off and on for the past 2 1/2 weeks.
I feed him Taste of the Wild food as often as he is hungry and he is now 11 lbs at 9 weeks. He is still small but steadily gaining weight.
He is under vet care and currently on antibiotics for the diarrhea and it seems to be improving. His activity level has greatly increased and he seems happy and playful and very smart. The vet says he looks healthy otherwise.
I am very hopeful he will turn out just fine but I am a little concerned about the possibility of EPI, primarily because he is so small and has had diarrhea for so long. I would like to try another food but I am concerned about upsetting his tummy even more.
