Finicky Dog Advice

finicky dog adviceFreddie, my three and a half year old Maltese, is a very finicky eater and has been since he was a pup.  I have tried every enticement to get him to eat his dog food. I would cook chicken, beef, turkey, eggs, anything to add to his dog food to get him to eat and finish his food. He likes the Innova dog food I feed him, however, he would still look for morsels of homemade food. He never seemed to eat with enjoyment or complete the meal. plus if I added “people food” to his dish, he would selectively pick it out before he took a few bites of his dog food.

I had two Pugs before Freddie and they lived to eat and would eat anything I put down for them. Needless to say, they were both over-weight and being a typical Mother; I was thrilled to see them eat. I grew up in a household where cleaning your plate was the norm.  Even though Freddie likes my cooking, he still needs to eat more dog food and I would try anything to get him to eat.

Recently my local pet store owner introduced me to a protein supplement by Halo, Purely for Pets, dog and cat food,  which improves the taste and nutritional value of any meal.  It’s called Dinner Party and it contains 75% protein mixed with herbal seasonings. The main ingredient is freeze dried chicken, freeze dried salmon, or freeze dried beef and only a small amount needs to be sprinkled on any meal for your dog or your cat to give their food a tasty incentive to eat nourishing and healthy food.

Halo foods supplies natural dog and cat food as well as natural supplements, treats and grooming supplies. I think your pet will be very pleased with their products and you will be happy to see how well-nourished and healthy your pet will be with the use of Halo natural products. Ellen Degeneres, the well-known comedian and talk show hostess, has used Halo products for years and is an ardent animal lover. She loved their line so much that she became a co-owner of the company and actively promotes their products.

Freddie loves Dinner Party chicken sprinkled on his food and now eats all his food in one sitting and leaves a clean dish. Good boy, Freddie!

    Mary, I must ask. How do you keep Freddie’s eyes and beard from tear stains? Please don’t tell me you use supplements in his food. I’m hoping it’s something simple. Could you please email to me your secret? Thank you. P.S. I’m going to be making your zeppoles this weekend!
