Thank you for the information. He has ear mites, vet said he should be ok and he seems to be getting better,is back
laying and walking normal.
They took some blood samples and are gonna call me back. Also, I checked all of his fur for ticks, thankfully did not find any.
I was informed he is at a healthy weight, but could stand to gain a few pounds. His weight was 72.3 pounds.
The food I have been feeding him for about the last 3 months is Pedigree canned food with dry food. I normally feed him twice a day, in the morning 2 cans of food, with 2 parts dry, each can is 13.2 oz and then do the same for dinner around 4pm. Some times he finishes it all, sometimes he snubbs the dryfood and sucks out all the wet food. I do not like to feed him strickly canned food because he ends up having diarrhea.
The vet offered me some vet brand food, but it was 35 dollars for a 10 pound bag. I am a full time student and just the ear bill alone hurt.
Again, thank you for the information and if anyone has any good feeding tips I would be very thankful to hear them.
