    Yes, I will request that, thank you. The pics don't quite show below his rib cage where, at times, he looks so tiny. Plus I can feel his ribs more now than before. If it's not a parasite, there is a definite reason why he is losing...

    Here's another angle from a video I took (couldn't upload video, so I stillshoted them).

    I know he doesn't look ameciated but he is on the thin side…at some points of the day more than others he looks so indented below his ribs. I wouldn't be as concerned if he wasn't steadily losing, especially with upping his food, at the very least he should be maintaining if not gaining. I'll update once we get all the results from the labs.

    Ok I see now. Thought was just recently a couple pounds.

    I think he looks great too, but if he's loosing weight for no obvious reason, there must be a reason. But I can't believe that it has got to with not being neutered. I never neuter unless medical reason and they keep their weight on just fine.

    Ohh la la Bentley baby!!!!

    Unless SeaBas has an issue I get it and needs to be monitor no question. But if he doesn't, I find he's fine as he is and I wouldn't try to fatten him up.

    He looks healthy to me I wouldn't really be concerned, except for the fact that he has recently lost so much weight...that would alarm me too. I hope all goes well with his blood work & that the vet is able to help you rule out any issues! He really is a beautiful boy
