Boneless mince for dogs

There is a problem in the kitchen with one of our new dogs. She is an 80lb American Black Lab. She is so greedy, and just will eat everything! She will eat from my hand when I make tea, she will eat table scraps, she will eat from my husband's plate, she even eats our cat food. If it is left in the kitchen for a couple of days, she will eat it. One of our neighbours has just come to us with 2 Golden Retrievers that she has just got, and she says her dogs are very hungry, and they eat everything. I am just wondering if we have a problem here, as our Lab eats our food, our husband's food, and even the neighbours food, we wondered if this is a common problem for dogs, or is it the problem of our particular Lab?

I really don't think you have a problem, our Duggie used to eat everything from my hand. He had a really sweet tooth and was a big eater. But now at 16 years old he is no longer interested in anything unless he sees food.

We think our girl is on the small side in terms of weight and that probably contributes to the problem because she is in the same house as our other three dogs that have the normal weight. So the little girl gets fed with the big guys table scraps as well. We feed the others twice a day and give them the big food twice a day. I don't believe we have problems for our dogs.

Yes, I agree. Duggie was also a big eater. Now at 11 years of age, the only thing he seems to eat is table scraps. He is on a healthy dog food, so I really do think it is the size of the dog.

My dog has a sweet tooth too, and is the biggest and fattest dog in the house - but she loves food too much to eat much of what is put out for the family - only the crumbs fall out and she eats that. This is a very good thing, I have no problem with her being overweight. It can't be good for her health to be so heavy! It makes me laugh every time I see her, she walks more slowly than everyone else and doesn't look fit at all, she walks like a bear!

I always get excited when I read posts like this. We've been on a weight loss journey ourselves, for 3 years now. We didn't need a dietitian to tell us, "Your dog has the potential to be underweight" (our vet sd that a couple years ago), we just did some research, watched the videos and started trying to find good food. We have a 7 year old boxer with a "heavy" appetite.

I was surprised to find this page when I googled 'low fat dogs'. A quick look through a lot of posts and lots of comments, seemed to confirm my impression. We try to only give her treats/meat that is around 3 days old, because if they're a bit soft, or we know that she doesn't like it, we don't give it to her. She isn't always perfect on the diet and she's very food averse (the very opposite of my son), but she has lost 15 pounds over 3 years! No one has ever noticed any significant changes in her coat, although the softness of her coat has improved. The best thing about this is that it is really healthy for her. (And she is so small, it's like a giant loss!)

I wonder how much she's been tested/screened. Our vet does recommend getting your dog tested for food allergies. I am going to have to do some more research on the diets I can use, and what tests I need to make sure she is ok with the food.

My dog's weight varies a little. She's got a tendency to 'poo' the bathroom. So, I just have to catch her in time. She has been pretty lean lately, but a lot of dogs do... and I don't think she needs to be.

My daughter and I had a big debate about feeding kibble to a puppy. We're all big fans of homemade food, and I would love to make it for her (with the addition of things I don't think she's getting from commercial food). She's a golden, and her coat is just so soft, no idea if that's due to her diet or genetics. I'm really not sure she needs to lose any weight. I was told a very young puppy could get away with losing weight, but it wouldn't be healthy. And there's already so much to it! My first time around I got myself into trouble by cutting her calories too low.

She's getting her 1st vaccinations next week and a wellness exam, but other than that I haven't heard any official word from the vet about her weight.

I've found that puppies get into the habit of eating, sometimes it's hard to break. So, it may be that, at this age, it isn't any of our business if they are getting enough or not. Some day, when you have older dogs and you think back, you may think, "Oh, I should have been more concerned then, about the size of my pet".

She's a golden, and her coat is just so soft, we thought it'd be a shame to dry her out and make her skin itchy by using kibble. (She is about 12 weeks old).

I was totally surprised that she doesn't have a weight problem, and it took some time to figure out why. The first thought was that I had been giving her kibble for a year and a half. But the vet sd that I had been feeding her good quality puppy food (from Hill's) since day 1, and that is the standard diet for golden retrievers! At about 10 weeks, she started eating solid food. By week 16, she ate well in her puppy food, and we've been slowly increasing the amount of time she gets to eat kibble (I don't want to encourage her to eat kibble longer than she's ready).

It took a few days, but we did discover that we could use only a small portion of the kibble in her puppy food, and she continued to eat her
