I have a TFT who will be turning 18 in 3 weeks, and he is as happy as can be. I've had him since he was 4 months old. His ribcage is sensitive too, you have to support their butt when you pick them up. My mom has a TFT too who is 11 now, and she's the same way. She'll throw out her knee if you don't support her butt when you pick her up. Both my TFT and my mom's TFT have sensitive stomachs as well. grain free food works best for them. I have made my dogs food for most of his life as a stew with potatoes, carrots, broccoli, oatmeal, kidney beans, scrambled eggs, ground turkey, cranberries, sunflower seeds, and flax oil. I also give him "missing link" powder on his food once and a while, and grain free treats with glucosamine in them.
