Calling all chubby hav's
I wanted to share what I learned today. Ever since I put my boys on high protein diet, they have gain so much weight. They are like little umpa lumpa's. I've been feeding Primal raw and leaving Evo to free feed. I've always free fed them with no issues, until I went high protein. They started blowing up over the past year. The lady at the Pet store told protein is hard to burn. Even though my guys get a 30-60 min off leash walk/run a day, they were gaining weight!
Today, I decided to switch to Innova low calorie dry food. I thought they would never eat it, because they hardly ever nip on their dry, unless they are famished. I've also tried every dry food out there, for them to turn their noses up. I bought HALO DINNER PARTY season mix( chicken flavor) and sprinkled it on the Innova dry food. The pups, even Bella, went to town on the dry! This HALO stuff is awesome. I also took cut yellow and orange sweet peppers, put in a baggy, sprinkled Halo on them, and shook. The pups loved this treat!
My guys will be on this low calorie diet until I can easily feel their ribs!
