    My TT is old and its hard for her to walk that much, but I dont have any other idea of how to strengthen her muscles. She doesnt like water so swimming is not an option. ill try to do some walks with her as suggested and little by little maybe it’ll help.

    I do believe it is age related. The vet said it though he didnt examine her. If Glucosamine Chondroitin is not for muscle weakness then maybe it wont help, but since it wont hurt then perhaps I should try it anyway

    If I take a food that is not considered lite with 14% but 28% protein, would it be bad comparing to the 9% fat that the Vets Choice has? Does the difference between 9% fat and 14% is meaningful for a dog that gain weight easily?

    I also know that green beans and cucumber are good and low with calories, isn’t that true?

    Hi Betsy,

    Would the veggies be a bad choice? would it increase her weight? Im not adding a lot of it, just some cooked veggies like carrots, green beans and cucumber.

    OK, so I have purchased the Vets Choice Holistic Health Extension Lite. The recommended feeding mount for the weight is 2 cups a day. But I am afraid it would be too much, so I think Im gonna feed 1 cup and add some veggies

    The problem with foods that are not senior/weight loss, is that there is also an increase in % fat. I am well aware that its better to give the normal kind, but I am afraid of a weight gain.

    Ordering online wont change anything as a lot of brands just does not exist in my country.

    Looking at the Wysong senior and Wysong adult again, I can see that the difference between them is only the % protein which is higher for the adult brand (28% vs 25%).

    I am leaning towards the Wysong. All other parameters looks the same (besides the meat ingredients)

    The Wysong has 14% fat and the Vets Choice Holistic lite has %9

    @aquariangt, could you please explain what you mean by “They have specific criteria they need to get, so they don’t fall into DFA’s rating system”?

    As I have already mentioned, choices in my country are limited as I am not from the USA. Wellness Core and Annamaet Lean are not being sold in my country.

    As for Go! Senior, I tried the Fit and Free edition. It was nice but the price is too expensive im afraid. I paid $36 just for the smallest bag (5 lbs I think)
    Wysong and Vets Choice are also not cheap but its cheaper than the GO!

    Is 24% protein is really that low? The Wysong senior has 25% and it is rated 4 stars.

    The Vets Choice original is rated 4 stars, but there is no rating for the lite version. Should I assume it is the same rating?
