Starving?

by Twila Griggs
(Bay St.Louis Miss.)

My 2 year old Pyrenes is kept inside. He gets daily walks and goes with us almost everywhere. When it comes to feeding time he does not eat much. I have tried different foods. He eats Gravy Milkbones and Pedigree beef. He weighs 73 pounds and is skinny. HELP what do I do to fatten him up?

I think he needs to exercise, the more active they are the hunger they get. I know you can mix in cottage cheese to bulk him up bit the problem is if he is inactive you will only add fat and not good weight. If you want to feed more you have to get him active you want to build muscle not fat. So you need to get him out and moving. It all works together. Exersize builds muscle, muscle weighs more then fat. He will get hunger and eat more so it is a circle. More exersize more hunger, more food intake , more muscle and more doggie. Do it right you do not want a overweight Pyrenees. Last take your time build health weight.

Different feed regime
by: Anonymous

I would recommend a higher end food such as Fromms or an oven-bake dog kibble such as Oven-bake Tradition. Have a close look at the ingredients on any kibbles you look at. Anything that starts with grains is not nutritional for a dog. Also, try more natural treats.

Better yet, get him onto a raw diet. You will probably find he'll like the raw much better. Do your research on it.
