Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

 Should I be concerned about this?!

I just recently took my girl to the vet, she was two pounds lighter than the last time she was there which was about 6-8 months ago. I don't see this as a significant amount of weight, but the vet had mentioned something about doing some testing. Which freaked me out when hearing this. My girl is getting older, so this just concerned me. We are guessing around 9 years old. But she still acts how she normally does, runs, eats well, etc. Should I really be concerned about these two pounds? She weighs 51 pounds. Is that average or what? Any answers would be great Smile

Im not sure why your vet would be worried about 2 pounds unless she is really skinny? Did he mention what tests he wants to perform? Maybe he is worried about parasites?

That weight sounds normal to me.. I would find out what test he wants to do and what he is concerned about maybe something to do with her age..
