    Btw, dried beet pulp is a supplement we used to feed horses for weight gain that would not make them “hot” (more energetic). (Noticed it in Dr. Tims food)

    Thank you all. She does get treats at about 6 calories each. They are small so at most 20 per day. Occasionally she gets a people treat (by accident), I treat her with her dog food on our runs. So total dog food intake amounts to 3.5 cups at most. She still has a definite “waistline” from the side, however top view is barely curved. I hoped when the scale said she weighed so much that it was muscle. I think I am going to try one of the ones you mentioned with a higher protein and less fat. Perhaps the natural balance is just not the right formula for her. Thank you for time and input

    Stephanie b- I am not positive she needs grain free, she had a lot of issues with diarrhea as a puppy, after 7 different foods in her first year (yes did the gradual change) natural balance potato and duck limited ingredient/grain free, was what she was on when it (the diarrhea) stopped and I have never switched. (Scars from cleaning it up). I was surprised she was overweight as she runs at least 5 times a week 5-6 miles with me. What do u suggest for not grain free? I may try a not grain free. Any suggestions?
