Ok. I worry about everything but I need some feed back. Ian's  weight has been flucutating up and down a few pounds for several months.We have done all kinds of test and everything normal. Vet not concerned but I am. Does this happen with any of your pups.

My older girls weight went up and down by a few pounds from time to time depending on how much walking we did, or how much food that ate or the season. But unless it's a dramatic loss I never worried and that only happened when Kelsi developed pneumonia. If the vet isn't concerned I wouldn't worry.

Is Ian eating well?
In summer our pups eat less and because of the heat we take shorter walks. I also give them less treats if we did not have a good walk. If you are worried go for a second opinion. I am doing that with Winter and her tooth.

Good luck you will feel better after you hear that nothing is wrong.
Good luck,

He eats like a horse and we have run all kinds of malnutrition test, urinalize ,  bloodwork etc., etc. Actually he is more active now than in the Summer -we live in New Orleans. I am just paranoid with his health after losing my 15 year old Cairn Maggie. The only problem we really have are allergies. We are trying a food trial and after that will probably test for airborne allergies. he is a happy , active, bouncing off the walls 2 year Old Cairn Terror! More dog than I bargained for at my Age! LOL

I sure understand that you are very worried I would be too. Our Levi has allergies but by using a special shampoo from the vet and eating Holistic grainfree food he is doing awesome. Levi had sores all over his tummy. We had to use a ointment on all the spots he had even under the tops of his legs. It was so pittyful but he never had it anymore now that he is eating Holistic food , treats all grain free.
Our new Westie Winter also has allergies and our vet put her on Zyrtec and the same shampoo.She is doing well now so far.
As owners we all worry about our pups.
I hope your Cairn will do better so that you have less worries.

Claudette your Ian sounds like a wonderful little boy. I hope the food trail gives some answers to his allergies. My cairn Willie will be 18 in February.He gobbles his meals down but will go through times of eating less it seems in the winter months. It can be a worry when you see a change. I wish your Ian well.

I guess it depends how active they are and  what and when they eat etc...The boy cairns I do know if entire and Bitches on heat are around can lose weight a lot but it sounds like your boy is a normal happy healthy one and no problems but I would just ask your vet maybe for his or her opinion..Hope we get to see a pic of him if you can..Hugs Annie and Gang xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
