Why Is My Australian Shepherd Fat and Lazy?
My Australian Shepherd is 22 months old and keeps gaining weight. He is up to 72 lbs. I cut his daily food allowance in half. It did not help. All he does is lay around the house all day.
He used to be very active and playful in the morning when I first got up but now he just lays in the hallway and stares at me. My Vet said that I could have my Aussie tested for thyroid disease but he said that thyroid disease at this age is rare.
Does anyone have other suggestions?
