Look at that waist. Do I look like a food addict to you!? (Never mind. Who cares!? It gets me more pumpkin in my food more often. SCORE!)
Hi. My name is Sissy and I’m a food addict.
No, seriously. It’s in my chart now and everything. Gretchen Greer isn’t being snarky; I’m doing this post on my own, while everyone else makes jokes about my latest trial and tribulation. Only my pawsome vet, Dr. D., isn’t razzing me about my exploits. She says she has the same problem, and prescribed high-fiber add-ins at both of my meals. (Extra smooches for her next time I see her. I really do have the best vets in the world.)
Mama here. No, we are QUITE serious, or at least… Dr. D. and Sissy are. The Knight is blaming Sissy’s probiotic, but Dr. D. did some research and couldn’t find a SINGLE report of dogs developing extreme hunger or behavioral issues from said product. Just the same, she agreed it wouldn’t hurt to step Sissy down to a maintenance dose. This week, we’re doing a half of a packet daily. Next week, we’ll do half of a packet every other day, and then we’ll drop to half a packet once a week as long as Sis’s digestive system is running … well.
I’m blaming our new schedule that is rather short on routine. The dogs and I are still logging 20+ miles a week, but I’m gone longer most days than I was with my other job, and the Knight comes and goes very sporadically. I also moved their morning meal up 30 minutes and their evening meal is still at the same time.
I know several of you have smart, athletic dogs that counter cruise, steal food, etc. Have any of them been slick enough to get an official diagnosis AND treatment that encourages more human ad-ins!?
