    DefaultI just got back from the vet with Jacey..

    She is 40.2lbs!!!!
    They looked at her tail and are not sure whats wrong. He thought it was "happy tail" until I told him its been since I got her in march and he looked back and read. We are going to try antibiotics and see what we get from there.. There is a small crook in the tail that its just not getting the blood flow there that it needs ??? .
    She also got chipped today I filled out the paper work and they did everything else for me.. They include fee for when its sent in so that people dont forget or just dont want to.. I think its probably a good thing. She did very well but got scared when the vet hit his knee on the table. She was laying there all nice and calm and then jumped like 10 feet in the air.. She didn't enjoy the chipping but did well!
    The chipping hasn't slowed her down one bit.
    He thinks that maybe I should up her food intake from 4 cups to 5-6cups a day ??? I'm thinking thats a lot of food... :-\

    Wow, I think 5-6 cups is way too much food! Haylee is 4 and she eats 3 cups a day and some treats here and there. I'm glad her visit went well and I hope her tail improves, too!

    not only is that alot of food .... but a whole lot of poop

    I guess I am spoiled with my 50 lb adult .......I just can't imagine her any bigger !!

    When Dakota spent the night during transport he must have had a good 25 lbs on her boy she looked small !!

    You know she poops very little. She poops twice a day. I was thinking with the amount I was feeding her now she would poop lots but its not much at all.. My others poop more than Jacey and they eat less.. :

    Growing puppies need more food than adults. Buddy ate between 6-8 cups a day until he was full grown. Now he is getting 3 cups a day.
