Dog foods / Re: Food to gain weight, but not energy!
« on: Jul 06, 2016, 22:10 »
Thanks for your advice, yes it is helpful. She is 21 months old, and try to get a good balance between exercise and stimulation. But I can just about see all her ribs. No other health issues.

I'm going to look at a different protein source to start with and take a look at feeding raw in the future if that doesn't help.

Thanks again.

I feed a grain free turkey based dry food, whichever brand is on offer, with some grain free wainwrights wet food. She only weighs 20.9kg and she's an average height Labrador, and loves her food. The vet isn't worried about her weight, as long as she is happy in herself and active which she is. But she has lost 2/3kg since I got her in February.

She is too lean and perhaps even losing more weight as she is so active.

Dog foods / Food to gain weight, but not energy!
« on: Jul 06, 2016, 07:00 »
Hi,

Could anyone recommend a dry and wet complete dog food for a very energetic underweight 2 year old Labrador.

I don't want to increase her energy or the amount of poos! But she currently looks like a greyhound, she is never going to become a typical fat Labrador thankfully but could do with a bit more weight on.

Any recommendations?

Thanks,
Lynda

Dog foods / WAGG working complete and wind!
« on: May 28, 2015, 22:10 »
Hi, I've just taken on a 9m old Pointer x Labrador bitch who has been fed on WAGG working complete. She has got horrendous wind, I'm wondering if it's the food as my other Labs are fed Wainwrights and have never had this problem. Anyone else's dogs experienced this problem with WAGG?

Feeding dogs with health problems / Peanut oil?
« on: Mar 03, 2015, 19:07 »
Hi, I've been discussing peanut oil with a few friends and it seems dog food manufacturers can list this as vegetable oil? Does anyone have any information on peanut oil in dog food? Thanks, Lynda

You  can get immunotherapy for your dogs allergies if you don't resolve  the issue with changing  his diet. Woould work out less expensive a month than trying all the different foods. There is approx an 80% success rate so worth a try?

What about supplementing the diet you choose with milk thistle? I always buy any herbal remedies for my dogs from a horse supplier as you get huge more value for money.
