Dogs and hard boiled eggs.... |
McCoy gets one everyday with one of his meals. He also occasionally gets the yolk if my wife decides to eat only the white of a hardboiled egg. He loves them
The dog can be sound asleep upstairs in his crate. If he hears the sound of an egg cracking in the kitchen he is downstairs and in his "please" sit in a flash.

MC, I'm happy to report back that your suggestion of hard boiled eggs was the ticket! I chopped up half a hard boiled egg and mixed it up good with her kibble and she was on it like white on rice |
I could probably chop up some cucumber and that would work as well, but eggs are good for them so maybe I'll mix it up, cucumber one meal, eggs the next.
Since she has food allergies, I'm trying to keep it as simple and natural as possible.
Still trying to decide if I should take some vacation time next week or just crate her downstairs so my wife can take her out through the garage for potty...I hate to do that to her but she'll have to be crated eventually, I do have a finite amount of vacation time and she's going to be on a minimal activity/no stairs regimen for a while.

|MeadowCat||Do I remember right, TN, that low copper dogs can have hard boiled eggs or cottage cheese? Mary Jo would know. Both of my dogs love those....|

Hairy is a suspicious sort when it comes to new treats. The vet has tried to give him an extra treat in an attempt to make her place nice for him, I think. She has particularly good treats, and he will politely take what she offers him, and then drop it on the floor. |
He's gotten used to me offering him various things, however, and generally, even if it is something he's not had before he will at least give it a small crunch or two before spitting it out.
Heartworm meds are particularly hard to get him to accept. I have to give him the chewy, let him spit it out, then break it into small pieces and feed it to him a little at a time. And even then he doesn't like it much. It must have an off flavor or something.

Is the Rx food wet?
Maybe mix some shredded Parmesan cheese in there?
Just a thought.
Axel was a very pill savvy dog. There was no hope for him. When he was on meds I had to shove it down his throat. Can't do that with Mocha's food though.
Lily is a pill spitter-outer too!
Pepper is a black lab. She eats Everything!

|alan j.||My boy has always been a weird eater. The one thing he has consistently done is take his first mouthful of food and spill it on the floor. I always likened it to how some of your hardcore bikers would spill whiskey to the soil for their fallen brothers. He does the same thing when it comes to a high value treat he spits the first one out but there is always a Daisy underneath to catch that one .The second treat is enjoyed by him. Silly Doberman!|

Speaking of food, Mocha's not too crazy about the low copper Rx food, even with a little fish oil sprinkled on top and some green beans. She'll eat it, eventually, but I've seen her take up some of the kibble and spit it back out, then pick it up again. But at least for now, she's eating it.

Bug - We have worked and worked on Kadin's weight issue ! Typhoid tests - several times - not the in house type either , We had him on Hills a year ago and he lost 7 pounds - then on Purina weight management - then we could not get that any more so we put him on Eukanuba weight management program - he put back on 5 pounds he had lost and I'm feeding the minimum amount on that . The Vet and I talked a few weeks ago and we put him back on the hills - he would not touch it . period - it had a very strong smell to it . I called Hills and talked to them - really didn't find anything out from them , so know he's back on the Eukanuba for now - btw - He loves the Eukanuba - its the food he loves the most ! The problems all started when we got him fixed then we had him on a food that the breeder wanted us to use - his weight started up then , then we lost Ali - then it was winter , then the heat this spring - I took him on rides - we stopped by places for his visits , we walked the lane over at the farm - you name it . |
I do worry that he is so out of shape he can not handle the little girl with out having a heart attack , I keep there play time short and watch there activity very close . I may talk to his Internal Med Vet ,
Have a good one everybody

Good 6:50 pm Central time Peeps! |
Mister is making a bunch of racket cutting a door through what used to be a window.
I need someone to talk to because I can't hear my TV!

I just checked the phone Ken, and yup--you did call me. And yup I wasn't home.
I love the pictures of the lil' bad girl--she's going to take that extra weight that I keep worrying about that Kadin is wearing, right off him. Puppies--man they really have boundless energy.
I think I got it backwards and I can't tell anything from the time on my phone set up because I set it wrong years ago and lost the instructions so can't even reset it it now. I think your almost 5:00 am was my 2:00 am and maybe it was the phone ringing that woke me up about that time (but I wake up a lot in the dead of night anyway--one of the cats and I go looking for food--Joey sleeps through all of it.)
Geeze--who calls anyone at 2:00am--never mind I don't want an answer to that...
