My dog is too thin and I'm feeding a raw diet, how do I put weight on him?
I have a 2 year old GSD - He is being tested for pancreatitis and other Digestive ailments (result are not in yet). His symptoms are excessive thirst, excessive drooling, heavy breathing, lethargic and loose stool. They started 2-3 weeks ago and have gradually gotten worse. (He also has severe skin allergies in the winter.) The emergency vet tested him and said it is nothing life threatening. My vet is doing additional test and has put him on a prescription ID dog food and within three days, his symptoms have improved dramatically. (He is not on any medications or antibiotics). In your opinion, could I put him on the Honest Kitchen brand, what type would you recommend or is there something better I should be feeding him? He was on Royal Canin dog food. I want to do what is best for him. Please just point me in the right direction.
Thank You, Dina
PS - I have several of your DVDs (Pack Structure, Basic Obedience and Dominant Dogs) They have been life savers. Thank You.
I would recommend either a raw diet or one of the Honest Kitchen grain free formulas, either Force or Embark. I think that until you get a diagnosis it might be smart to sit tight on changing the diet around too much.
