She doesn't look skinny in the pictures, but it is a bit hard to tell. Did you ask your vet about the diarrhea?

Hi! Your pup is cute! Good luck with her.. my pup was about 18 or 19 pounds at three months so maybe she is a little small.. I am notan expert though.. even my pup now at 7mos is only 39lbs..my vet said he is small.so.. anyway..mix some plain white rice with the food.. just a littlethough.. fora few days.. but make sure to take a sample to the vet..my pup had Giardia.. a parasite that causes diarrhea..he took meds for a week and was cured! Get a good vet for her! Good luck.

I would recommend taking a stool sample to your vet and adding a probiotic like pumpkin or live culture yogurt. I don't think she looks overly skinny either.

Nicky is 3 month's and 23 lbs. 12 pounds does seem a little on the small side, but she looks healthy in the pictures, so I wouldn't worry. She may just be a petite girl Smile

Well no I have not been to the vet yet. I know that once you change the dog diet, if you dont do it over time they get diarrhea. So although I'm worried about it I know it is fairly common, with a dog you have to switch their food slowly,sadly I was not able to do so

She doesn't look skinny, the pictures aren't taken at the best angles though. Advice as above for the runny stools.

All the same from me - looks good, sounds good - and yep the runs are normal. Just tough it out and your pup will be fine. Pumpkin can help - however we've never used it. We just toughed it out and about a week later everything was on course.

Balon is around 35 at 5 months, but he's a boy. 12 pounds seems small, but they come in all sizes. She is so cute!

She looks normal-sized to me. Some huskies put on weight quickly, some stay on the light side. If she still meets the "healthy" requirements (can't see ribs or spine), then I'd say don't pull your hair out too much. She's still way young and hasn't hit her first growth spurt yet.

Diego was 17lb at 9 weeks when we got him. he's going to be one in a week and is pushing seventy! picture in my other post discussing his weight. she looks fine from the pictures although the angles are a bit difficult to see. she's a baby give it a couple of weeks and she if she's steadily gaining once she adjusts to the new food

Dogs of all breeds are supposed to have a visible waist. If you can feel her ribs but not see them, she is at a healthy weight.

She looks fine to me, dog are supposed to have a visible waist and as well as a "tummy tuck" when viewed from the side. And considering she's gained 5 lbs in the past approximately 3 weeks I'd say she's perfectly fine.

She looks about the same from the top as Saphire and she is a healthy weight (per the vet on Monday of this week)!

My pup was about 15 pounds at 3 months. I did the same thing, made a thread freaking out that I thought I was starving her (all her siblings had at least 10+ pounds on her) but she ended up being on the small side Smile Now at 4.5 months.. shes like 27 pounds! Let's just say she had a growth spurt Razz

your husky is too thin? My husky is 7 weeks old today and is about 17lbs! Shocked

All of his brothers and sisters are normal size so i just think he likes to steal all the food.

At 2 weeks though he was the biggest puppy so im just not sure about him.
