Body Condition Score 3 - Thin

    Some fat buildup halfway on spinous processes in loin and tail head, but both are prominent. Individual vertebrae in neck are not visible but can be easily felt. Slight fat buildup over ribs and tuber coxae but still easily visible. Not desirable for optimal health and well being, depending on breed, use, and climate.
