    Default Nutri-Cal anyone?

    Has anyone here heard of Nutri-Cal?
    Or used it?
    The place where I got Lily said I should gives this to her up to 5 times a day.
    I don't give it to her all the time as I'm not even sure if it's the best thing for her.
    Does she really need this??
    We are one week down with the food switch to Fromms...so far so good.

    Any thoughts?
    Should I stop giving her this?

    Nutri cal is not needed. It is for dogs that have a tendency to be hypoglycemic. Although if you have been giving it to her regularly you may want to wean off of it slowly, just in case. Bulldogs are not a breed that commonly gets hypoglycemia. They love it tho, but I would not put anything added into their system that is not necessary.

    I do keep some on hand to help stimulate the wee wittle puppies, but rarely have needed to use it. I have never given it past 2 weeks of age. If anything I prefer to use a dab of corn syrup instead on the occasions I did need it anyway.

    I used this with my Yorkie when he weighed only 1 1/2 lbs to prevent hypogylcemia, but I have never used it with my bully baby.
