Thanks guys. This is all very helpful. Barley drinks a lot of water, and if his water dish ever gets empty he brings it to me and plops it on my lap. I just started adding water to his food to help too.
What kind of vegetables should I be giving him? Like carrots and potatoes? I was feeding bacon to help him gain weight, but now he is back where I like him to be. I was giving him cheese to help with calcium because I heard that calcium needed to be supplemented with Taste of the Wild dog food.
Barley doesn’t have a crate. We tried it for awhile but he tends to freak out in small spaces or when he gets stuck in a room. I just let him roam during the day and he is content and doesn’t do anything wrong.
Does anyone use the Purina FortiFlora Probotic with your dogs? Do you think it helps?
Also I thought it was recommended that you wait to test for Fanconi until the dog was 3 years old? Barley won’t be three till November. Should I get him tested sooner? I was told it was late onset so not to test him as a puppy.
