Oh, ok. "Your getting a pup. Well then feeding a premium food wont be as expensive until a few months later. I would imagine 40#s will last you close to a month. It lasts me just over 2 weeks for 2 dogs. TW is a "all-life-stages) food, so you can feed it at any point in their life. Same wi...

Navaeh has been on a few foods... I started her on crappy Maxx Nutrition, then we went to Canidae - she did fine on the Canidae but got bored with it towards the end of the bag, switched her to Timberwolf - she did great with Timberwolf - but with buying a house it's no longer in our budget, so now...

i would switch the timberwolf out with natures variety if you can get it in your area. Definantly one of the best foods out IMHO. Ive yet to try the taste of the wild, so might have to rotate that in once.

Blue buffalo isnt worth the money. Your better off with NV.

How many days or weeks does it take to see a change?



You might notice small changes of improvement within the first week or 2, but i would say atleast a month before anything really changes. They say a food trial is 12 weeks, so definantly by that time.

Re: Treadmill advice please???

ANYWAYS, yesterday I increased the speed to a fast walk so that he was walking quickly and steadily, but not trotting. I kept him on the treadmill (treating and praising) for 6 minutes. My plan was to do the same thing today, only go for 7 minutes...then 8 minutes tomorrow, etc. But, I don't know h...

Getting worse, but i got a little more info. The reason no IV was given is because she has been drinking and the liquid was never a problem. What is causing hte problem is that they dont know what snake bit her, so no antivenom, they also said that her blood protein level has gone from 2.8 down to a...

She is at home now, but i need any advice as what she could do to fight it off, if anything. She has asked me if giving Vitamin K wi...

I would stick with the NV, I have yet to see a difference in TW vs NV, and NV is quite a bit cheaper and generally easier to get. TW is a great food, but its not worth switching. JMO
