A few weeks ago, I had to take Babycakes to the ER Vet because she couldn’t walk. She has what’s called hip dysplasia. When the mood strikes, its like her back legs just stop. It looks like she’s paralyzed.
The vet told us to try to get a few pounds off of her.
This works out for everyone because we have another chunky dog in the house, who could also stand to lose a few pounds. So all the little dogs are on a diet now.
OMG! It’s so hard! They are killing me. They beg for food allllllll day long! I picked MooMoo up Saturday morning and I could hear his tummy growling. It wasn’t just any stomach growl either. It was a full blown ‘my stomach is eating itself’ growl.
I’ve been mixing their food with peas and green beans to help them think they are full, but it doesn’t seem to be working. And for treats, I’ve been giving them slices of apples.
