So they could have worms, be full of sand, possibly other issues. Has the vet examined them and done blood work and a fecal?
no, the bales....each flake is approximately 8-10lbs each.
The sand is possible but they do get psyllium powder for a week once a month to clean out their systems. They haven't had a vet check because my dad doesn't want to pay all that money when they really aren't that bad...they are not starving in any way. I just want to know why I can't get them rounded off and cover the ribs the rest of the way.
