Our 14yr old male has pretty severe,, but managed, arthritis & isn't as active as he once was; although he still has bursts of puppy energy from time to time. Despite being on a grain-free kibble that is supplemented with some wet food, vitamins & also pumpkin, squash, salmon, veggies, fruit, etc.- he has gained weight. He's currently at 66lbs. The vet isn't concerned but we both agree he would feel better if he shed some weight. My issue is, he is CONSTANTLY begging for more grub! He's at our feet when we eat crying; at the treat counter crying or locking his bowl & crying. This is behavior that has developed as he's gotten older- he was a perfectly trained gentleman in his younger days. A lot of times I give in because I don't know if he's truly hungry, but that means he's sometimes eating 3 meals a day instead of 2. Im just wondering, would it be better to give 3 smaller meals instead of 2 bigger ones? Maybe he needs the steady glucose support through the day?!? Advice??
