Chubby Sue and Toodles (a year ago)
I've been doing an experiment on my dog. She was getting fat. No. She has been fat for a couple years. I tried feeding her less dog food. I tried low-fat dog food and dog food for mature dogs. Nothing seemed to budge her pudge. Her hair seemed dull and she seemed rather blah. I started thinking about what dogs would eat naturally -- raw meat and maybe raw eggs. In the spring she eats lots of afterbirth. I did a little reading about feeding dogs raw foods and made the decision to try it on Sue. What happened in just a few months is miraculous. She got slim and not just that --she feels spunky and acts like a 2 year old instead of a nine year old dog.
Healthy & fit Sue today.
All I did was to add 2 eggs a day to her regular once-a-day feeding of dry dog food. About two times a week or so, I feed her a little raw meat and raw bones. That's it. I didn't take away her dry chow, but merely added the raw foods. She is full of energy, happy, shiny and healthy. I was telling a vet assistant about what I had been feeding her and she asked me, "How old is Sue?" When I told her almost 9 years old, she couldn't believe it. I'm tickled that Miss Sue is so much healthier and happier.
