Guest ashphobiax Posted January 25, 2012 Share Posted January 25, 2012 alright, so i thought it was just glider and his high metabolism but now im starting to think different... glider was under weight when i got him for obvious reasons, getting neutered, coming off the track only 3 months ago and all the moving he did, so i took him to the vet for a check up and a heartworm test. My vet said he needed to gain 10lbs, fair enough. we have him on a very high quality food thats high in calories we were giving him the correct amount of food twice a day for the weight we needed him to be at which was 75lbs (glider is a big grey) and nothing so i called the vet she said to up it so we did too the next gap which was for 95lbs still nothing, he has only gained 4lbs and this dog is SO food driven its a little out of control he will chase you down for any food, and even if someone even walks to the kitchen to get a drink he will run as fast as he can to the kitchen to beg for food. one night he even got into the food bag which then we put it into a plastic container with a lid and he got into it he also will eat a whole bone in on sitting. everyone jokes and says "does your dog have worms?! he never stops eating!" i use to laugh and say oh no he doesnt, but now im kinda starting to think to myself if he does... is this behavior just a grey thing or should i worry?!
