Doberman Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 4/17/2006
I was wondering it if was normal for this type of dog to loose so much weight that shows the outline of the ribs and spine? THe dog also is throwing up his food and eating it, peeing blood, and not touching his food or water. It's not my dog and keep saying "you might need take him to the doctor." and he says it's all normal.

4/27/06 It is NOT normal. Find a new vet. Sounds like you either have worms or perhaps parvo. Puppies will generally be thin while they grow -- thin is far healthier than fat for young dogs. Does the pup have loose stools? If he's not drinking, he's most likely dehydrated. Kendell
