Hi we have a 2 yr old male, neutered beagle. All of a sudden he seems to be
starving all the time! I think he may have a worm or something. I Know my husband
will tell me it's nothing but he is acting aggressively to get food. i.e. - steals things
he shouldn't have to get dog biscuits. He's never satisfied about eating. He always
wants more and is acting bad! Thanks.

I would definately get him checked for a parasite. You can bring a stool sample to the vet and they can check for worms. It can be other medical issues too, so you might want to get a vet check. Diabetes is a possibility too. Better safe than sorry.

Susan ,
A check up at the Vet w/stool sample is always a good idea. If check up is good and no problems , you may want to think about what has changed , perhaps a visit from another dog or someone with the scent of another on them could be the problem. It could also be the dog food he is on. Try to feed a kibble with no corn , wheat or soy with a named meat source as first ingredient. This does not have to be expensive if you have a local feed store , and , you may find that a better kibble is also cheaper than dog food at a big box store.

This is what I use :http://www.tractorsupply.com/4health-trade-chicken-rice-formula-for-adult-dogs-35-lb-bag-6009468

Please let us know how thing go...

Best , oldhounddog

I think this is very typical of beagles. They will eat themselves to death if given enough food.
I would say that the change in activity is probably because he started acting bad, and he was not disciplined. He may have even been rewarded for his bad behavior with a treat. He is smart - he will repeat that bad behavior every chance he gets if he knows it gets him food. When he begs or steals food, immediately yell at hiim and tell him to go to bed or outside.
Of course, you should check for worms. You can do a visual check yourself after he "goes", but your vet can do a more conclusive test.
Good luck.
