Tried all the usual foods eg. chappie, james wellbeloved, but shes so thin. Shes wormed and bombs around like a looney! Healthy as healthy can be but would love to see a little more weight on her. Shes almost 7 and weighs 25kg. Would be brilliant if someone could give me some advice.
Her friend Rosie, on the other hand, is the other way, yet eats less than Duchess (thin one) so think she could lose some weight as she has arthritis in her back legs so the extra weight is doing her any favours. She could live on fresh air and still put weight on!
They are both Caspian breeding and have read that Caspian's are usually on the thinner side.
Can't wait to get some help! x
I managed quite successfully on raw tripe, it didnt take long either. Just add a small amount at first then gradually add more as she becomes accustomed to it, until you can get as much in her as she will take. My last one was very thin after her litter mates left and wouldnt eat, but it worked a treat. Also the James wellbeloved although a very good food wont put weight on, you would need to feed an awful lot to do that, which might help her friend Rosie. It is also very good for dogs that eat poo (lamb and rice).
