Question skinny dog

I have an 8 year old Beagle. I've noticed lately that she is getting really skinny. She still eats twice a day like always and she is getting the same amount as before. she just all of a sudden started losing weight. Im not really sure what this mean but I would like to know if its something i should take seriously and seek medical attetion about. Please email me at Flyinmqnkee@aol.com with what might be wrong with my beagle.

Hi Mark
Your dog could be suffering from any number of conditions such as a thyroid problem or even diabetes. Please take your pooch to a vet and get a thorough examination done.

Worms could be a good possiblity also. Have you checked to see the color of his gums? If they are white then your dog may be anemic (spelling?)
