My 15+ male Alex has always battled to keep on weight. For the past few months I've really had to battle to get him to eat. His teeth are in good condition for his age. He willingly chews hard biscuits so I don't think that is a factor.
He has ALWAYS been a finicky eater. I can't get him to touch anyting out of a bag or can, and for the past few months (since his running buddy of 15 years died) all I've been able to get him to eat is home-cooked venison/turkey or beef. He's gotten pretty scrawny looking (ribs and hip bones showing) but he just won't eat enough to put on any additonal weight. I've started giving him Nutri-Cal to try and bump his caloric intake, but wonder if there is something else that would help to bulk him up?
