Just to clarify he has the vets later on today

I am just wondering what could be causing weightloss he is a14 month collie cross and the last week I have noticed he is losing weight he seems fine although I heard him being sick this morning I got up no sick I guess he ate it sorry tmi. he is eating fine poo is formed and had no food change, he was in kennels for a week over Easter and he was a bit lethargic when he got back, I am a little worried and stumped

Oh, how worrying for you. Hope it isn't anything serious.
Could be anything. Good luck at the vets today.

thanks for replying he is fine vet said to up his food and take him back to be weighed in 2 weeks he is a little under weight for his size but not much he also listened to his stomach and apparently it is gassy and bubbily

Pleased to hear the vet wasn't worried.
I had a medical in germany and I was ultra sounded on my liver and kidneys, but was told he could not do my digestive system as that is always full of gas and bubbles grin

Hope he puts the weight back on as quickly as he lost it.

I felt a bit daft taking him tbh but i was worried, he is maybe just a bit like you and gassy grin
