    We feed her with Acana food for puppies and we add salmon oil once a day.She eats 100gr -3 times per day.Also we give her orijen treats with lamb- 5/6 pieces per day as a reward.but you stop the treats for a week now because we are worried for her weight.

    You’re feeding her perfectly. She’s only 5months old plus she’s sitting down so yes you’ll only see their belly hanging. She’s adorable!! Regarding the lamb part, you mean fresh lamb cubes with the treats? 100r 3x per day is less than a pound as 454gr is a pound. So 300gr per day of Acana is fine. What are the calories of the orijen treats? Orijen n Acana (same company)is one of the top quality of food you can give to a dog but orijen is much higer in calories. Keep an eye out on them treats. If it’s 5-6 pieces of lamb cubes/pieces also keep an eye out as both are very rich for everyday treats. Great treats but give 1/2 of it. Get her to eat a few fresh frozen green beans as snacks. Rotate the snacks.

    By the way, is that a flea collar around her neck? If so get rid of that, them collars are made with pesticides!!!

    The treats that I bought is that https://www.orijen.ca/us/foods/dog-f...rass-fed-lamb/
    They told me that lamb is more hypoallergenic that other meat.it has 5 calories per treat.
    Your reccomendation about fresh beans is perfect.I prefer give her fresh food as they are more healthy.besides Kyla don't have any preferences at food.she eat everything with enthousiasm.
    About the flea collar ,we bought for extra safety especially for the mosquitoes and kala-azar disease.Except for that we put a insect repellent for dogs when we go for a walk and once a month we put her a ampoule with reppelent around the neck.I dont know of we overdoing with all that.
    We afraid kala azar mostly because when we go to our vet and talk with other dog owners ,some of them have problems with kala azsar that trouble their pets.
    I have read some articles that refer to more natural ways to have the same protection but I dont know if that are enough.

    As most knows I’m for the holistic way. I do a mix for both my dogs and it absolutely works 100% as I do go for walks in the Rockies where there are ticks n fleas n mosquitos.....Canada does have lots of them 3 little buggers. Some members have tried it and they swear by it to.

    FOr ticks/fleas/mosquitoes

    14 oz of Witch Hazel
    12 drops of Lavender
    15 drops of Citronella
    15 drops of Lemongrass

    Put all in a spray bottle and shake.

    Also you can add pure lavender or eucalyptus lemon oil on top (outside) the collar.
    People thinks..”what can a nice smelling oil do”...it actually burns their little receptors.

    Have a look at this thread and you’ll find great recipes that works or I wouldn’t post them if it didn’t.

    We finally went to an orthopedic phycisian.he did x-rays at kyla to see that is the real problem.
    The news are bad.The xrays show that kyla has symptoms of dysplasia at two hinder legs.The bones at her shoulders grow more then normal.The worse part and the most concerning is that the doctor said that her bones aren't grow at the edges as normal but kyla's bones grow also at the midle and that is extremly painful.
    Then we went back to our vet to show him the test and said that the growing of bones stop in same point as kyla grow up and those points in the bones will close.
    Sorry for my english.I want your opinion if you had a similar problem as you have a big experience with eb.
    I am depressed with all that and angry because the first thing the doctor said to us is why did you buy an eb,if we know that eb have problems.we love our dog and we will do everything to have a happy and normal life without pains.
    Thank you again
