We struggle to keep weight on our older GSD, Jax. Jax is 17 1/2 months old. He's been checked by our vet many times, as well as checked for parasites. There's nothing physically wrong with him, he's just super active and a picky eater. We have our 4 y.o. GS staying with us, he's in motion non-stop so Jax is as well. The child likes to run in circles just 'cuz he knows Jax will follow him in that circle. Get the picture? Jax gets 4 cups of TOTW a day and since he's a picky eater, it's a struggle to get him to eat that much. It requires lots of encouragement on the part of my DH. Jax won't eat anything unless DH tells him it's okay. So, we started adding satin balls to Jax's food about a month ago. He gets rougly 3 cups of satin balls a day. I was very hopeful, hearing all the praise of satin balls, but they really haven't helped. If anything Jax has put on maybe three pounds. We were hoping for 10. We've about used up the last of the latest batch I made and are thinking about going to straight hamburger instead of the SBs. Any other ideas? Jax weighs about 85 lbs. now and looking at him you can clearly see that he needs about 10 more pounds.
