I sprinkled some dry garlic on her food this morning. She is a chow hound and wants to eat all the time, but she has a heart murmur and her vet wants her to loose some weight. She is not overweight, but she is a smaller dog weighing in about 17.5 — 18 pounds.
But, the vet wants her at a lean 16. So, we cut her food down a little bit and then had a handful of frozen green beans. Put flax oil, some brewers yeast, and now the garlic on that. She has had problems with itchy skin and the brewers yeast and e-mail seem to really help with that.
In addition she gets half of a dental doggie every day. She will be five years old and has yet to have her teeth cleaned. The vet says they are in perfect condition.
