take your borzoi to the vet - he probably has worms or a different type of parisite

Not necessarily...mine is worm free and still having trouble getting some weight on her..she's 15 mos also, always been extremely thin since birth...she eats pretty good...tried putting in a little canned food with her kibble but caused loose stool..will post if I find something that works........

Sighthounds can be contrary when it comes to eating, especially under stresses like traveling they will refuse their kibble. It's no need to panic, though it can be frustrating until you find a method that works. 1) Consult a vet to clear health & vitality 2) Find a high-quality dry food that your dog is at least somewhat interested in eating. Throughout adolescence, these preferences can change, keep it interesting but always take care when switching food. 3) Feeding area should be a quiet area without the bustle of kids & other animals. 4) Establish a consistent daily routine of feeding times. 5) Keep an eye on how much they're eating each day and their weight gain/loss. My male borzoi all tended to teeter right on the border of underweight, in that first year they do so much growing but you won't see them fill out until later in life, around year 2. As long as the pup is healthy, active, and not emaciated, you're in the clear
