Way to go Brownnie! When Brownie was first diagnosed with cancer he was 87.5 lbs. Then with guilt treats he jumped up to over 90 lbs. The vet said if he is going to be a tripawd he needs to loose weight. I have always fed Brownie a high quality dog food that is grain free . I started making his meals smaller but he just wasn’t loosing the weight. So i started “feed the dog starve the cancer”. I chopped the vegetables very fine but he would just smell and tip the bowl over. So in started putting the vegetables in a food processor with water then adding cottage cheese, one of his favorites. Now he can’t eat it fast enough. I also went raw on red meat. He loves It! I stopped giving him treats from the grocery store. I never new how much sugar they had. According to the cancer survival guide (great book) he should not have sugar. So for treats he gets raw bones and I only buy treats from my favorite neighbor good pet store. All three of my fur babies only get sugar free treats. Natural pig ears, vegetable and sausage rolls. And their favorite is the chew that is the throat of a cow which is also great for joint support. Yesterday brownie weighed in at 75 lbs. They took his measurements at the vet and for his size his perfect weight is 70 lbs. So 5 lbs to go. I have noticed he is getting around much better and I had to tighten his hardness. 

When I received my beautiful necklace it came with some cranberry treats that all 3 love. I would like to know where to purchase some.

I am SO proud of you and Brownie! WOW! Seriously, it’s not easy to help our pets lose weight but you DID IT!

I love the veggie and cottage cheese smoothies you are making for him. What a fantastic idea. Good job Mom!

The treats are from Trader Joe’s. Unfortunately I think that the closest one to you is in Austin. Next time I’m around one (probably not until Fall, I will be sure to get you a bag!). xoxo

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
