Skinny boxer
I adopted a 7 month old boxer bitch. She was quite thin when we got her but though she would fill out as the weeks went by. She is eating fine but has LOST weight and looks emaciated (she has bad breath for some reason as well). Her eyes are bloodshot as well but her coat is healthy and shiney...Any advice?

At seven months she may still be "teething", which may account for the bad breath. What are you feeding and how much?
