12:22 pm
and we try to get them skinnier. this is the opposite problem. >> this is a situation where i had two patients come in, in the last few weeks where their weight all of a sudden was 5 pounds less than what it should be. these are big does so they could handle that five pound weight loss but everything else about them was fine so it was a surprise. so we're looking for why would a animal lose weight when they are eating normally and everything else is fine. the first thing is to rule out an intestinal parasite. giardia is prevalent here. it's spread by fecal oral. basically they touch poop that has it and they get it in their mouth. >> which dogs do. >> or they drink water or eat grass. it has to be a very wet environment. other things that can cause weight loss like that are diabetes. diabetes can show up very insidiously meaning your animal seems just fine eating great but they are losing weight. hyperthyroidism where an animal
12:23 pm
might be being treated for hypothyroidism where the gland isn't producing enough hormone treated with medication and sometimes they are getting too much medication so they become hyperthyroid which means their metabolism is working too fast so they are eating normally but weight is dropping. usually the more serious things like cancer or, um, kidney, liver disease, things like that. the animal is not going to be feeling fine. they are going to show other symptoms of not feeling well so those are lower on the list. see what to do, you take your animal in, have a physical, run a fecal sample, lab tests and if more tests like ultrasound, x-rays and then we do that as well if needed. >> all right. luckily, mack doesn't seem to be having that problem. he is just right. >> mack is good. >> if you have a question about your pet's health and well- being. ust email us at and we'll have our pet expert give you an answer every friday right here at noon. we'll be right back.
