    Default Brutus losing weight

    Brutus is doing great on the honest kitchen. I mentioned about a month ago he dropped 10lbs. I haven't officially weighed him again but I suspect he has lost a few more. What can I give him as a lunch meal to get some pounds on him? I started him on nuvet plus again so maybe that will help, but this is starting to make me nervous. Any suggestions would be great.

    I don't know... we don't have that problem in this household The food switch will probably take care of the issue by itself maybe... but an egg sounds like a great idea. I give ours egg sometimes, not everyday though. We have our own hens so I give them when I have extra eggs left over

    Does he get 3 meals a day or breakfast/dinner? Maybe he needs to have 3 full meals since with THK, he is maybe taking in less calories?

    He gets Breakfast and dinner. I guess I could try to give him it for lunch. I wasn't sure if since it is so healthy that the extra meal of THK would put weight on him.

    I think you need to either give him more at each meal, or up it to three a day.

    We had the same problem with Blue. First time we put him on raw, he lost weight when we followed the feeding guidelines. I had to give him more than the recommended amount just to maintain his weight.
