Border Collie Loses Weight In Front Of A Bright Yellow Backdrop
Sudden weight loss is always something to be concerned about. Though the possible causes can range in severity, it’s important to realize that weight loss can often be associated with other medical conditions. If you notice weight loss in your dog, make an appointment with your veterinarian.
Gastrointestinal upset can be one of the main causes of weight loss for dogs. GI upset can include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, loss of appetite, and dehydration. Diabetes in dogs is a condition in which the body is either unable to produce sufficient amounts of insulin, or when the body fails to utilize insulin properly. Weight loss is never normal. It should always be taken seriously. Be aware of any differences in your dogs' normal behavior. As they age, try your best to keep track of their weight. . . .
