Thanks for that Karen. I was talking a few months ago about this with Sabine. She's really excited about this program. Science is coming a long way ehh. ?

My new little one is biting both front legs...not the feet, the legs...any ideas about what it could be? I have her on BLue Buffalo Basics...but have been giving her rinsed green beans to control her appetite...she eats like a wolf...and she is about 2 lbs over weight...
Could be snacks I guess, what are the best snacks to give? She will eat Lettuce ribs..but I have some Blue Buffalo snacks...and she loves a cheese treat when training...so as you can see she really gets other things than the Basics..
Thanks..

Who knows Flynn. could be anything in these foods, or not food at all. Re. green beans. For her to digest these and get anything nutritional out of them , they need to be cooked or pureed. .Keep an eye on her if it keeps up , I would check with the vet.

Actually Dave I am using them for "bulk" as she gets her recommended food allowance, but seems starving all the time...they are canned green beans, and I rinse the salt off, or use salt free. This is something the vet had me do with my Mother's little Dashchund when he was over weight....not many calories but filling. It worked with him...I am not sure with her.. I limit the treats except for celery and lettuce ribs..unless I am trying to train...

that's fine. Some dogs self regulate ,others are pigs. It comes down to watching the calories. But do watch the biting . If her legs get a sore on them , I would take her to the vet. Watch treats though. Give her human food for treats and training. Much healthier. But keep in mind it should be no more than 15 percent of her calories in the form of treats.

Thanks I will watch her. I am positive if I left an empty bag of food she would eat herself to death. I thought only Dachshunds did that lol. Will watch the legs. She does go for walks and gets into a few high weeds...I try to keep on gravel road..
tonight I saw a red fox run across the road ahead of us...both she and Sir Winston went crazy...they sniffed and pulled to get into the grassy areas, so I had to turn around and come back...the fox was beautiful though...really red. Don't want the dogs getting to areas the fox has sprayed though...oh the perils of country life LOL

Flynn, My girl who weighs 8.5 and goes up to 9 when we are training has a fat girl inside of her just waiting to get out...she is always hungry. I did take her to the vet and her blood is fine, when she was with the breeder all the dogs were on a strict diet, so maybe she is making up. Often can food has less calories due to the water content have you thought of feeding her can every other day or few days or mixing so she feels fuller. Just a thought, it has worked for me in the past.

Flynn, chiggers thrive in tall grass along the road side. I know this from experience. And you couldn't see them on your dog. Just a thought.
