Chase, my German Shorthaired Pointer, suddenly seems hungry ALL THE TIME! He has always taken his time eating, and never begged and now he is gulping down his food and counter surfing and trying to get into our dinner!
He is on Innova puppy and receives just shy of 3 cups a day. I found if I fed him more he gets loose stools. The treats that he gets are a stuffed kong every couple of days and liver for training. Also a RMB maybe once a week.
Is this normal? I've seen dogs beg while people are eating, but Chase is acting like I am starving him! Any advice?
We have a 5 mo old setter who is in a growth spurt. He is constantly whining for more food after he eats, before his scheduled meals, etc. We have increased his food intake a bit and have been adding green beans (good filler-low caloric intake) With large breed dogs you have to be careful with food intake and HOD. But it sounds like yours in growth spurt. Try an extra 1/2 cup of food for one feeding and try some grean beans at the other feeding. Good luck
I like him a lot better than I like most people. To you he's a dog. TO me he's an adopted son who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly. I have no problem with any of these. <
