I know it is more technical than that but I had a dog that was having issues keeping weight on. What was happening is I was letting her out in the dog run (45 min after eating) and she paced all day. They said the adrenaline so soon after eating was the issue. After I kept her in a crate for 2 hours min after eating she gained weight and was fine.
hmm.. thats very interesting i've never heard of that. good to know tho.
thanks for the feedback.
