    Hi all, I have a young shamo (9 months old) who is not growing as fast as she should be. She is also much skinnier than the others and looks generally hunched up. She is eating and drinking.

    I took her to the vet when she was much younger as she was skinny even then and he gave me some antibiotics to try. I have put her on the antibiotics again and wormed and invermectined her. I have also started her on a dish of mealworms with cod liver oil and garlic every day (which is how I give her her antibiotics).[​IMG]


    Pictured above is a stool sample. It looks pretty normal to me but the urinates look like milk curds..

    Any ideas??

    Her brother who has been with her since day one is completely healthy and is now about twice her size, as is everyone else.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated!
