If he is healthy and has energy, it doesn't matter. What does the vet say?

Could you change his diet? Ask the vet for recommendations?

Has your vet mentioned anything about an autoimmune disorder? I have a 2 year old we took in from another family. He has always been thin but he is a skeleton now. He had some wired neurological symptoms earlier this year.


Former owner finally told me he was sick as a puppy and had been hospitalized with meningitis. After consulting with my vet and a specialist we now know that we are dealing with an autoimmune disorder.
