Um…Tami I’m completely confused. You feed your dogs a food that lists these as the ingredients? Whole Grain Corn, Corn Gluten Meal, Chicken By-Product Meal, Powdered Cellulose, Soybean Meal, Soybean Mill Run, Chicken Liver Flavor?
Just had full work up on Liberty today with vet to make sure liver and thyroid, etc were not the issue before doing anything more drastic. He’s a hound terrier mix of some variety and at 48.2 pounds. I think I need him under 40#. The vet doesn’t want him to drop it too quickly but didn’t specify a specific weight or how quickly either. Is feeding to the 40# recommendation too drastic? Apollo is absolutely fine at 68.8. He’s probably full blooded lab and is doing great.
Thanks guys. I’m pretty experienced with food, just in a new situation. I just got a service dog, finally, in July. He was on Merrick, but I’m getting him off that now, I just don’t trust Purina based anything. Had him on Castor and Pollock, but it’s not agreeing with him. Liberty has gained weight eating the same thing Apollo is eating. So I was trying to find something they can both eat. But I think it boils down to them being on different food.
Thoughts on Wellness Core? I’m considering putting Apollo on the regular wellness core and Liberty on the wellness core reduced fat. I need to swap to something that I can get here locally in nowhere alabama to try out before I start ordering it online where it’s less expensive. I’m careful to weigh out both of their food and the only time either gets any treats at all is when we are training, and it gets deducted from their dinner. I appreciate the suggestions. I’m going to look at the nature’s variety too because I think I can get that here too.
