I bought a ramp for Max, but he used to hurt himself trying to avoid it shocked so I undertand Coop!

It would be helpful if you could try to train him on it though, in preparation for the surgery. First with it laying flat on the floor, and then slowly rising one end. For Max I would just help scoop him up from behind his legs and didn't use the ramp (am going to make an agility piece for jazz smile ), but I'm not sure that would be good after a hip surgery.

Anyway, thinking of miss moo! Always!

Thank you so much Lisa hugging I have been trying to get him used to it...nothing like plonking treats along it! Yes it did remind me of training Moo at agility too! What you were doing is what I have always done and sometimes he would squeal and I assumed (wrongly - before diagnosis) that I had squashed his boy bits blush

So far she is back to her normal again. It makes me laugh though as Cooper I am sure is a black Lab with pricked ears - he will eat ANYTHING...but their Sunday Sundae he hates it. It's so funny to see the pathetic look on his face when I won't let him leave his bowl until he eats laugh Moo thinks it's delish thanks very much smile

Oh I forgot to say, the only types of food I can buy here are Canidae( which they are on), Royal Canin, Iams, Science Diet and some working dog brands (cheapish) from the stockfeed shop. I pay $128 for a 13.6 KG bag now so I will have a look on-line and see how much delivery is.

Outrageous cost! When indy was a pup, the only really good food was Innova, Canidae came out later. Of course I tried Innova and it caused a flair of pancreatitis shocked

That would be typical wouldn't it! I really am not sure what to do, their 'output' is fine, Mollys coat is lovely, Coopers is okish but the burping to me indicates something is not right.

I think I can try Taste Of The Wild for about the same price with shipping so I think I will order a small bag and mix it and see how they go. I looked through so many threads on an Aussie forum and a lot (heaps) of people seem to use some of the grainstore working dog food. But they are all full of grains and that's not good is it? Cancer risks etc? If only I gave this much thought to what I eat laugh

Hi Bianca... Good to hear the Molly has settled a bit for now....and I hope you gave Coop a talking to for scaring you like that.

Food is difficult isn't it. I bought some TOTW for Kobe to replace the dry I ruined with the liquid herbs...he didn't like the salmon one but will eat the Bison one.

I also know what you mean, I feed a fairly decent dry food to my others as a base, I have noticed its expensive feeding Kobe all meat and veggies....given the meat volume needed to maintain his weight. I also am reluctant to use any RMB's with the tumour he has. Owning a large breed dog has its drawback sometimes......much cheaper to feed the little ones....

I don't really have anything to add, but wanted you to know I stopped by (haven't been reading forums much) to catch up on Miss Moo. I am sorry it's still a struggle, but hope you can find an answer!

I don't think there is a good answer frown I have never been lucky with any kibble, so I'm really no help. I would go with the freshest that you can get, since older kibble is more likely to grow stuff in it. (Thinking about shipping I guess....)

Grains....while canidae is grainless, it probably is high starch because it contains potatoes. If you can find a food that has similar amount of meat content, but, say, is rice based, that may be just as good, sometimes better, depending on the dog. To me, the important thing isn't so much that it is grain free, but that it has the most meat content, which tends to occur in grain free versions. However, I have never found a feed store food that has high meat content.....so, you are probably stuck, and even more frustrating since she seems to be doing so well, and you really don't want to rock the boat when things are working!

LOL Alison rofl

Thank you all I appreciate it hugging

I have no idea what to do about food and now my head isn't in it due to Coops upcoming surgery (will update his thread).

Considering how well she is doing on the food overall, and what you will be managing with Copper, I think I would be very hesitant to start messing with the food. My only preference for a trial would be no kibble for a seizure dog, but that's not an option, understandably so! Living on an island is incredibly expensive!

I hope that she maintains hugging
