As they say....some dogs live to eat and some eat to live. I've had both. try out some different foods/treats that he really likes alot. Mine are crazy over fish, you could use chicken, beef etc. whatever floats his boat. Since he is more interested in socializing than food, work part of his diet in...

The sticky that Rel put up has this list, outside of that it's up to you and what Buster likes. That covers all of the good ones and they are all for certains things. You couldn't really have an across the board recommend for something like that.

I know there has to be at least one health food store in Tallahassee, which is where you find the better foods. Bil-jac is good and some swaer by it, it is still by-products though. Mine lived well on the Nutro with extra glucosamine (blue bag) for a while before moving to Innova.

As her muscles strengthen she will probably hold longer. Just like weight lifting or running. All in your own time....

For Innova at least, the dry food has about 3X the level of protein and fat as the wet so if you have a high activity level dog you could drop alot of $ on wet food getting the same calories. I used to mix a little wet with my dry to keep Daisy interested but have been able to move to just wet.

When I started feeding quality food I fed a little more than was stated on the bag because the Innova req. was half of what Nutro was. Daisy porked out in like a week, and it took two weeks of alot of exercise to shake it off. He's just used to feeling a stuffed tummy from his Iam's amount, it'll pa...

Steve and rosy, So sorry to hear about your little girl. One of my dogs lost her appetite from antibiotics, and the other puked his brains out. It bothers lots of dog tummies and as you may have noticed, many vets prescribe people doses. I would go with some boiled chicked and rice. It is really bla...

I'm trying to catch some but my camera is slow and Diasy's attention span is short :)) Plus she's black. It's so weird, she'll stretch up at the fence in the sun and you can see lots of definition, veins popping out, and she looks ripped... (I wasted 1/2 a roll of film trying to catch her doing that...

Exercises for certain muscle groups?

Anybody have any suggestions on what they use for certain things. Daisy is responding quickly to our exercise plan and new diet, but is bulking up in certain areas and not others. From the springpole her neck muscles are now about as wide as her jaw line. And from all of the walking her hind legs ar...

Go down about 5 or 6 topics in this section to "Which Dog Food Does Everyone Use" there are links to all of them. They carry California Naturals and Innova at the fancy-pants-hippy-tofu-everything-free-range-granola-store-that-smells-funny here in Athens. :) :yucky:
Maybe try somewhere like that.

Start with a good high quality food like Innova, Canidae, or Wellness. The contents of these foods should do much to build her immune system. Diet change can trigger flaky skin and itchyness, so it may get a touch worse before better. Hang in there though, it'll be better in the end.

Rel, A friend had a rescue male that went through this at one year old. He was authritic to the point of lameness in both legs. His vet put him on Nutro for the supplements with additional Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplements. After he started to get better he went to just the food. Buster is very ac...
