had his thyroid checked? Or any bloodwork?
He is not getting any treats other than his wet and no dry. He doesnt beg for any food either, but that has not always been the case when Jim was feeding him. You know for his daycare they require blood tests, but Im not sure if he has had his thyroid tested. Jim actually handles that. I will certainly ask.

What breed do you have?
Awwww those pics you posted above are amazing. Snowball is a Bichon, too, but he is a larger Bichon. He weighs about 22-23 LBS now and should weigh (according to the vet) about 18 LBS. His Mom and siblings were the larger breed of Bichon, too.
We have a neighbor who has a Bichon who weighs about 25 LBS and his legs are long and he is very slim and is at his exact weight. And we have another neighbor that has a large Bichon that weighs about 23 LBS and he also as the correct weight.
I would love to see Snowball at his correct weight, too. I have to really work with Jim on doing the right thing for him. Im going to show him the difference in the pics you posted.
