All my dogs are lean. Dr B and I think it's healthier for them to stay lean. It puts less strain on their joints and keeps them in generally good health. Samba, though, feels that she's not being fed enough. Because she's on pretty high doses of Prednisone for her MMM, she is constantly hungry.
Last month we started her on a special diet high in Omega 3 oils and low in Omega 6 oils. Since then she's been truly convinced that she's being starved.
She's finally gotten her message across. Because her special diet allows fewer treats, she's been losing weight. Today I decided to make some changes. She's getting an extra meal, we'll call it lunch, that the other dogs don't get. She's also getting some special goodies on her dinner.
We also solved our yogurt problem that I ranted about a few weeks ago. We tried Dannon low fat vanilla yogurt and everyone decided it was yummy, even Tsar. So now we purchase large containers of the stuff and because it's low fat, Samba can enjoy it too.
