Good evening all.

Emma is 12 weeks old. I have noticed when she eats that her tummy area get really sucked in, and her ribs really protrude, especially her lowest right rib. The rib protrudes some all the time, but especially when she eats.

Is this anything you think we should be concerned about?

Thanks.

It looks like a flanged rib to me. These are conformation faults, but rarely cause problems for affected dogs.

As far as the stomach sucking in, Daisy did that when she was a puppy too. One thing I did notice is that there needs to be more toes in the picture watching that pretty little girl eat.
