Linda, I have an even worse problem!! when I reduce Cash's food he starts eating his own tootsie rolls, if you know what I mean. One day DH told me Cash on his walk turned himself into a pretzel to get it on it's way out so DH couldn't get it first
I found with Cash anyway, that if I basically keep him on an all protein diet he does better. Kind of like the atkins for humans, he is much less hungry. I have just started to add a little kibble back in to the NV medallions but I think I had to reset his metabolism and hunger with all protein for a while. We use the Natures Variety raw medallions. But I cook them. But, not sure what you are feeding, but you could try an EVO kibble or Orijen, or Core.
Or the other way to go, is get him a Weight loss kibble, Royal Canin has one for small dogs, it has more protein, more fiber and they can have more for less calories and feel fuller... if Ricky isn't picky this may be a way to go.
good luck, we were in for a shock last time Cash went on a scale...24.5 lbs...he is a big Hav but still. We are now counting treats... and everything else.
