Redbone Coonhound Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 3/1/2006
I have rescued a beautiful redbone male, about a year old. I have wormed him & feed him all he can eat but his ribs still show more than I'd like. At the end of his rib cage, on each side, his last rib "turns out". It's a lump sticking out from his side & looks weird. Is this an odd breed charateristic? Or is he just deformed? Also, his eyes get a lot of goop all the time, but do not seem irritated. What's up with that? Normal or not?
