    Thank you Anonymously! We did have senior exam done just days ago. She does get walked 3-4 times daily. Morning 6am, noon time when my husband comes home for lunch, 6pm when he gets home from work and then just a short walk to urinate at 10/11. We have two dogs, so feeding multiple times in the day is almost impossible.
    I did purchase the very lean beef I mentioned. They both seem to be only eating the wet food and leaving most of the dry. I think for a few nights I will not add anything. I’m afraid she will not be nourished properly.
    I appreciate your advice. Thank you so much!

    As Anonymously suggested, the best thing to do is have a senior dog exam. Once you know exactly what is going on, then you can check out the holistic solutions. You definitely will want to give a low fat diet as not to put excess weight on your pet. I myself have an overweight senior girl with arthritis and now a fatty tumor. She is already on medication that I hate for her to be on. I have been hearing about turmeric from friends and family members, but you have to be careful with that as well. So, take your baby to the vet for full senior exam and then do your research. You will know better what you need to do.

    I just learned about some low fat canned foods as well. But do you think cooking the ground beef is ok if it is only 3% fat?
    Thank you!
