Feeding dogs with health problems / Newby advice please
« on: Mar 22, 2015, 15:09 »
Hello,
We have 7 rescue dogs, all very loved and fit and well, except one. She is a 6 year old Beagle and only has to look at food to put on weight. She has been fed Arden Grange Lamb the same as the others, however I have dropped her feeding quantities down and now she has less than my little Patterdale, but she is always hungry and still putting on weight.
She has a slight cruciate problem and is on cage rest, which doesn't help the weight loss, but the vet has put her on Royal Canin Obesity Diet as it essential for the weight to go for the sake of her leg.
This food is so expensive and the ingredients are not very good, but I feel obligated to feed her this as my vet insists it is the only way.
I have bought a 14kg bag of the dry and 24 tins of the wet as she is on a mix of both ( 85g of dry and 1 tin wet daily) The tins are just on £2 each plus the dry kibble which on a pension and 6 other dogs is a lot to find, however if it works it will be worth every penny. ( my dogs eat before me !!) but if I am wasting money needlessly on something just so my vet can make money then I begrudge doing so.
I would be very grateful for any advice or feedback ( excuse the pun)

I have been on the website many many times but am new to the forum. We have 7 rescue dogs of all shapes and sizes so dog food is a very important topic for our family as you can imagine.
I just wanted to say hello and many thanks for all the wonderful dog food descriptions and advice as feeding animals is a bit of a minefield.
