Help. My 4 month old puppy seems to have really gone slim after he’s now started full Orijen puppy food. Before he was on Bakers and he wolfed his food down and had a chubby tummy. Gradually introduced Orijen over 8 days and has been on it for 2 days fully. He seems to have lost the chubby tummy and now I can feel his ribs which I couldn’t before.

Should I be worried ?
Thanks

Pups have growth spurts all the time and can go from chubby to skinny in no time at all. Many poodle crosses are also pretty lean and the majority I see I can feel ribs on which generally just means they are fit and lean rather than underweight.

As long as pup is still as fit and active and enjoying life he sounds OK - but not robust suggests something else?

Orjen is a much better food than Bakers so its a positive move for him dietwise. If too worried you could always pop to the vets for a check over

In my opinion they aren’t supposed to be chubby, I don’t know why but I would not feed my Louis bakers
