You can get good food for the price Iams is charging now. We feed Canidae, I think most stores charge $36.99 for 35 lbs.

Our dogs put on an extra pound or two for the winter but only because we show in ADBA during the other seasons. You can't have 0% body fat in Michigan in the winter even if they only go out to pee :)) .

I don't - but that is my personal feeling. I know lots of people crate without water while they are at work. I tend to provide either a small flat backed bucket 1/2 full attached to the door or if the dog can figure it out, a water bottle made for dogs. I figured you wouldn't, I was typing my reply...

At what age do you feel it's acceptable to crate and withhold water for 8 hours?

A good old fashioned leash in your hand works best lol. Time consuming and tiring but it's the most effective.

You need to take in a fecal sample, not all parasites are worms!

Coccidia is nothing to fool around with; I almost lost a pup to it.

Good luck!

We've been on the new formula for about 2-3 months.  Poo is softer but still formed.  We've had a bad case of whip worms and now another infection in one or two so I can't really tell how they are doing for sure.  Three of seven are under weight but that could've been the worms.I'll wait and see bec...

How many fecals have you done?

One of our girls had a bad case of whip worms and looked like that. Sometimes whips don't show up the first time. We finally found them when she quit eating and what poo she could make was full of them. She had lost 20lbs in a matter of weeks.

He does sound like he is at a good body weight.

I feed Canidae and raw chicken quarters - but not together. I either feed kibble in am and raw in pm or on alternate days. At Walmart ckn qtrs are about $5 for 10 pounds so its very affordable and cuts down on feed costs.

I like cut up hot dogs the best! Just chop a 1in piece and push pill in :thumbsup:

I usually rotate foods for long term meds so they don't catch on : cheese, chicken, peanut butter, or raw beef trimmings from a steak or roast.
