If you cut back on the amount of food fed at each meal does she still have the vomitting? My 7 pound Shih Tzu mix would be OBESE on 1/2 cup of food per day. However I know a dogs metabolism, and therefore amounts needed, can be very different. One half cup may be the right amount for your girl.. If it is not the amount being fed I’d have her checked for thyroid or other issues that cause weight gain.
As far as Wellness Reduced Fat, I think it’s a good food. The only thing that would be better is one higher in protein still with moderate amounts of fat. If you’re feeding higher calorie or carb heavy treats it might be worth trying small pieces of boiled chicken too.December 12, 2012 at 8:04 pm #10766 Report AbuserosamocosaParticipant
i have never really tried feeding her less than 1/2 cup per day i guess its worth a try, she always seems to be hungry she has many issues chronic ear infections, bad knees, luxating patella issues, i told myself i was going to put a limit on the money i spend on her now she has cataracs, you can see them in her eyes and i am contemplating eye surgery . where do you put a limit
