The vet said Tucker is underweight. I am not super worried about it but I was wondering if I should make an effort to help him gain weight or just leave things alone.
He has a very skinny waist and his ribs and sternum feel too pronounced. I can feel each individual rib - feels like just skin and corgi fluff covering them up. He is 11 months old and weighs 28 lbs - which I know is ideal for the breed but I guess he is a bit bigger and should weight a little more.
Currently I feel him 1/2 c. of Wellness 2 times a day. I also give him about a T. Peanut Butter in his Kong (some days) and some healthy treats in a biscuit ball when I leave for work. He gets a bully stick about 2-3 times a week. He eats his food in typical Corgi fashion (FAST) and he has normal energy levels. We walk about an hour a day and play some fetch in the yard - we also recently added the local dog park to our activities.
I have had him for 5-6 weeks now and there is no change in his weight. Should I increase his food intake to put some meat on those bones? I just do not want him to ever be overweight so I am hesitant.
