Awesome pictures!!! Very Handsome dog! what camera are you using to shoot with?
and Happy Birthday!!!
^thanks!! he is spoiled rotten
Oh GOOD! Glad he is doing better.
here are a couple of more recent pics:
Phil, how is Baron doing. Btw, love his picture… soft spot always for the red and whites.
Baron is doing much better, thanks for asking. I switched his food and am feeding him in conjunction with EVO Redmeat some Trippett New Zealand Green Venison tripe. He seems to like it very much and am in the process of incorporating Orijen into his diet.
Scheduled feeding times helped a lot.
By the way how is Baron doing??? … I am sorry I didn't mean to "steal your thread" ..:p, I just felt identified with your situation.!!!!
No worries, I'm glad that this thread has hopefully been beneficial. Baron is doing better, he still will go all day and not eat but it's less frequent and he has been eating more with the scheduled feeding times.
so we'll see.
Pics from the dog park, our first snow of the season
Sayblee had lymphoma. However, she had some auto immune issue before that we treated for over a year and 3 surgeries. We did every chemo protocol, she crashed on all of them, even just steroids (4 different types). But we gave it our all for 5 mos.
That sucks, sorry for your loss. She definitely sounds like she didn't give up without a fight!
Do you mind if I ask what his current kibble is? Aside from EVO, the other brands you mentioned aren't generally well-rated brands – sorry if that makes me sound like a dog food snob! laugh But really, Baron may benefit from a brand with more higher quality ingredients and less filler.
I agree about structured eating time. And even if you have good kibble right now, you may want to continue shopping around for other brands of pet food, maybe try a different protein source (and transition gently so the change doesn't wreak havoc on Baron's digestive system). If you find the right one, it really can make a difference. I like Taste of the Wild, Natural Balance, and Canidae for good mid-price kibbles. Orijen, Acana, Before Grain, etc. are some more expensive (but not bank-breaking) brands you can look into. However, I don't think these are generally available in the chain stores like PetCo, PetSmart. In my area, I've been so pleasantly surprised by what I've found at the locally-owned pet stores (including prices!), that I almost never shop at chain petstores anymore.
And I also support the option of raw, if you want to run with it. We've done really well with Primal Raw, a pre-made frozen option, and other grocery store-purchased meats here and there.
Our B came to us eating a really low quality brand of kibble, and only grazed lightly, sometimes not finishing her food. Her previous owner said she was always like that... and part of her slowness may have been due to the transition process. But we didn't take long to transition her to better food, and we've had zero problem with her appetite since.
I'm learning about all the different foods available, he never had a problem up until about three weeks ago, now he just seems very dis-interested in his food??
He's been picky from the get go with his dog food preference.
I have rotated and mixed 3 different foods to give him a little bit of variety, he has an appetite because he'll eat treats and people food, so I guess I just need to get him on a schedule, which I have started.
