2 months ago I found a dog dumpster diving for food. He is about 2 years old and in good health according to the vet. Problem is he doesn’t like dry food and will only eat 1/2 cup of dry food every other day. He began to lose weight so I mixed canned food and dry food.
Problem is I travel in a small RV and canned food is costly and added weight for the RV. My “Camper” is 40 lbs. which is his ideal weight.December 19, 2012 at 8:46 pm #11075
Have you tried just adding warm water to the dry? Or sprinkling on parmesan cheese? Adding a little of the meat from your dinner?December 19, 2012 at 9:17 pm #11076
I tried moistening food with chicken broth, beef broth, canned gravy. I’ll try parmesan cheese.December 20, 2012 at 12:50 am #11081
Dehydrated food like Grandma Lucy’s or Sojo’s is usually cheaper per pound than canned food. Just add water. And obviously the dehydrated food is much lighter. Mix it half and half with kibble if you want.December 20, 2012 at 7:59 am #11086
What a wonderful person for rescuing the pup from dumpster!!!! God bless you! I bet the parmesan cheese will work. Good luck!December 21, 2012 at 10:03 pm #11164
Thank you Pattyvaughn for your suggestion of Parmesan cheese sprinkled on Camper’s dry food. I mix 2 heaping teaspoons from a jar of Kraft Parmesan & Romano cheese in his food and he loves it. Now I have to sprinkle cheese, only a small amount, on my 75 lb. lab/golden retriever mix (from local shelter) too.December 22, 2012 at 9:47 am #11169
I never would have thought of that one except BryanV always suggests it:-)
