Dusty

IMG_1387Dusty is an old man. He requires things to be a certain way. For example, if his morning food must be sprinkled with the NuVet with the Duralactin sitting atop or he will give me the look. Oh, better yet, he won’t eat a nibble. The trifecta –Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice, the NuVet (powder), and the Duralactin. They keep him mobile and more than comfortable.

Our Adults eat the Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice including Dusty. On occasion, we use a higher calorie food that is very similar–for those needing a bit more than the typical fare. The Duralactin is an all-natural anti-inflammatory supplement–it takes about two weeks to see dramatic results. It helps to diminish the need for prescription medication that is sometimes needed to manage inflammation.

We seriously believe the NuVet combined with a quality basic food (such as the Diamond Naturals) is an excellent diet. Dusty also enjoys steams squash, steamed pumpkin, various other veggies, and whatever morsel he can garner along with his basic diet.

IMG_1388Dusty has a crate (or maybe we ought to call it a hideout) that is located in our utility bath. When the door is open, he can put his eye on me working at my desk. I think he likes that arrangement. You can see his food hangs on the door.

We have had a lot of questions about food lately. Please be aware that your food company may switch the ingredients without warning. A person who was using another food had severe skin and coat issues–hair loss and sores. After spending some serious coin at the Vet Office, they contacted Cliff. It was then that we suggested they check their food for change–sure enough, there had been. They switched over to the Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice (ordering it from Chewy.com), and her coat began improving within a few days. We suggest you be aware of the food as well as snacks–keeping in mind companies can make these changes that may well raise havoc with the Weimaraner’s coat, or tummy. We can all agree that this situation is best avoided.
