Need your advice please..
We have a 11 yr Golden named Gunner. He will be 12 on March 24 th. He has not been well and we have finally connected the dots. Itís the Royal Canin we switched him to on Dec 13th. Slowly things started to deteriorate until he was throwing up kibble and just stopped wanting to eat. 2 weeks ago, I started to feed him cooked chicken breast or ground beef. He will not eat any rice. I cook him carrots and he likes snap peas. He also wil only eat snow an$ WILLNOT drink water !? After reading reviews on Consumer Affairs and Pet Advisor, the stories are very similar to mine. This stuff is toxic. After 2 weeks of not eating this stuff, he is wagging his tail!!! 😊., he snores less, doesnít curl up in a ball all day, his fur looks better, you can see it in his eyes, he is feeling better.
I realize he is almost 12 and things are slowing down, but now we are getting our boy back. 💕. But, he just wonít eat anything but cooked chicken breast or ground beef, cooked carrots, snap peas and the odd homemade pumpkin cookie.
I tried buying a better quality food to try, Blue Wilderness and Merrick Turkey (which smells 100% better than Royal Canin)
But not interested, I mixed it with his ground beef, he almost gagged. In the last few weeks, he also will not drink water, only eats snow. That is just odd..
Iím sorry if this is long, but Iím hoping someone with similar experiences can help. I worried his diet really isnít balanced. Any suggestions sure would be appreciated.
