    Update: After a week of exclusively puppy food, my 14yo Chinese Crested developed pretty extreme diarrhea. He’s still heavier than before the experiment, but this obviously can’t go on. Back to adult soft food until the runs go away, then I’ll mix in a little puppy food now and then to keep his weight up. Moderation is the solution.

    My 14 year old Chinese Crested was losing weight rapidly. Vet said it was age related and normal. He lost a pound and a half between February and August (12.5 down to 11 lbs). I began feeding him soft food exclusively to encourage him to eat more. After a month there was no change.

    Last week I began feeding him soft puppy food and he already feels less bony and frail. I haven’t weighed him yet, but he definitely feels and looks less gaunt. Also, it seems like he has a bit more energy. The last week has been very encouraging and I’m looking forward to seeing him continue to improve.
