My Boston Terrier doesn’t seem to put on any weight… Any Advice?


Here is a question from Jessica asking other Boston Terrier owners to help her Boston Terrier who is too skinny.

She says : “Hi There… Our beautiful Boston is ever so tiny, he’s always been tiny and is very healthy in himself with lots of energy and a lovely healthy coat however he just doesn’t seem to put on any weight? His back is very skinny. Can anyone recommend a good diet? He eats little and often as big portions tend to upset his tummy but he will eat everything and anything that is put in front of him. Looking for advice please?”

Does anyone have any advices and/or experiences?

“satin balls” as treats….look up the recipe

Mine likes sweet potato, vegetables and chicken. Eggs.

Home made with raw beef.

I kept mine on puppy food for 6 months longer than recommended for an other reason. She gained weight because the puppy food is rich and builds little bodies. Maybe mixing in some puppy food with the adult food would help. (My reason for doing so proved to be an allergy to something in the adult food.)

Have a CBC done. My Boston started losing weight, CBC which I requested showed high liver enzymes. Found out she has inoperable liver tumors.

Well I don’t have a Boston T, but I happened on this question.
My pooch would not gain weight no matter what I fed him! Then one morning I noticed worms in his poop. He had a tape worm! I had him to the Vet within the hour!
Something to perhaps look for! Hope that your baby puts some weight on!
