The great thing about the stew is that it is a high fiber stew. It makes them feel full!! Vegas dropped the weight and is now at 54 pounds. He's maintained this weight after being on the stew for only 6 months. It's been several years and he is still at that healthy weight. Here is a before and after photo. For treats....he got only frozen green beans. He loves green beans...it's his absolute favorite treat. It's very important to make sure that they are getting healthy treats...nothing else. My MIL was a huge contributor to him and his weight. She always would give him bites of her human food.
    for the last couple of years he's been back on his 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup in the evening of kibble.

    Wowsers! I need to make this for Petunia...she is a hefty 66 pounds and way too heavy. I have her on Fromm's Pork and Applesauce kibble-3/4 cup in AM and PM with a dollop of Merrick's Grain Free beef

    I am thinking maybe making Vegas' stew and supplementing because she is always hungry.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    It should be a sticky thread, all I know is that Vegas stew is usually highlighted and you just click the highlight it should take you right to the videos and everything

    I'm so exited Benedict has lost 2 lbs in 2 weeks since we started him on the Vegas stew so basically 1 lb. a week. His Ortho vet was so happy.

    That is so awesome! Are you giving any treats? It really helped when we put a stop to my MIL giving the kids "a taste" of her food at each sitting. We usually only tend to give green beans as a treat, but sometimes a cheeto or cheeze it makes it into their mouths.

    Its almost been a month of princess beefy's salmon diet and regular walks (they r very short) and she is doing great I have not weighed her but I see a major difference already she has a defined shape now (other then blob.lol ) and she seems to be getting on her chair easily now. (Its a low chair) I do give her treats only 2 times a day tho and they are skin and coat treats with glucosamine for her joints ( my other dog has hip dysplasia) but beefy gets the treats for letting me clean her wrinkles.
