Rotation And Variety

Question:
I wrote some time ago that my little picky eating 4 little maltese were less than thrilled at the variety of kibble I had purchased them.

I received some samples in the mail and tried every one. I finally now have

2 formulas they will eat: NURTURE & OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE.

???? I feed 2x's daily and add cooked chicken breast to each meal.

Is this necessary?

???? I purchased the PDF to promote weight gain..... didn't have an effect.

She's still a 2.4 pound, very skinny, little girl..... I feed her multiple times a day. (SHE'S not a sickly dog either)

???? I've been purchasing Angel Eyes to prevent those dark tear stains that are ugly! on my beautiful white dogs. Any suggestions?

I'll be placing an order today or tomorrow.... so need advice!

Thanks for your dedication to nutrition to our beloved pets and ourselves!

Answer:
You do not need to feed fresh meat or kibble at every meal. Variety and rotation are the keys to health.

If you have not had your hard gainer checked for parasites, that would be wise to do. You might consider increasing the dosage of PDG, but also trying some foods that may help with weight gain, including the Nurture™ and Optimal Performance™ you noted, as well as Epigen™ and the TNT™ products.

If none of this works it just may be that you have a naturally slim dog. If all else is well that is not a problem.

We do not have any information about the Angel Eyes products, but we have had reports of eyes clearing up with Archetype™ and Epigen™ added to the diet. You might also try the AddLife™ and EFA™ supplements.
