You want a softer shiney coat? That's easy.  Feed him 2 tablespoons of yogart on his food once a day.  it's good for his digestion too!  Lady and Grace get it every night and they are so soft and shiney.   They poop like mad.  Really big too!   If you're worried it might make him fat...get the low fat yogart.

Hi,

One of the other boards I read has a bunch of Raw feeders on it. Many of them sware by this stuff  ??? Seaweed sounds pleasant compared to this.

Raw sounds great but boy I'd have a hard time serving up that stuff  :P

EWWW Thats just nasty. I could likely buy a whole cow for the price of it too. I keep thinking that I should raw feed Judge but Im not sure if I could stomach it. I have trouble eating meat if Im the one to cook it.

I feed my guys the can Solid Gold Green Tripe with their dry food, they can not get enough of it.  I add about 1/4 call to each meal.

I feed my pups raw and supplement it several times a week with Tripett canned green tripe. The smell is a little unusual (as in nasty) but they love it and it's supposed to be good for them.

One of my dobes, Sasha, has such a sensitive stomach that if I fed her raw she would puke all night!  She cant even handle a raw beef bone without puking for hours after it's gone.  Very sensitive, she is. (did I just sound like Yoda???)

What about Wangus?  Is he eating the same food as Cody?  Does he have the same issues?

Maybe take Cody off his food altogether and start over.....maybe fast him for a day and then do the sensitive tummy diet for a week or so (boiled chicken and white rice) and see if makes any difference.

It IS a mystery!!

no kidding huh?

this all happened a while ago, like several months.  but he has remained fat since.  and i did take him off the seaweed stuff, AND the food cuz of his gas, and now he is on the nutro natural that his belly has always done great on.  so basically everything has changed except for his weight.  AND, he is getting WAY more exercise.  him and angus run in the yard several times a day, they go on long walks a couple times a week...and for the most part...cody stays in the yard all day and runs by himself (he can be offleash and angus can't). 

so yup, i am stumped.

AND, if i starve him, he throws up.

he is on a very strict food schedule, and if i'm late by even 30 minutes, he is up chucking everywhere.

Has the vet done an xray?  Have you cut the amount of food he's getting?

This is all very confusing.  It sounds like he's completely healthy and you are doing everything right....but why would he get fatter and fatter and have smaller and smaller tootsie rolls???

I KNOW. 

the one thing we have not done is Xrays.  i guess that is next on the list because i dont know what else to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the vets dont necessarily want to do them, because they do not think anything is wrong...they just think he is beefing up in the older age (4). 

I DONT KNOW.  thanks to EVERYONE who replied

Have you thopught of getting him on some sort of GI supplement? You know how they have them for humans to "clean out" the system. They might have some for dogs. I sounds like he is constipated. And he needs something to get things moving. That could explain the weight gain, his full and bloated. Just a thought.
