    Default GYpsie and Her Food

    well we had major progress last night!!

    as many of you may know gyps has major male human issues and is not a very trusting dog. it took as ages to get her to eat and my oh hasnt been able to feed her without her having major anxiety attacks and hiding upstairs. he can hand feed her. but if he picked up her bowl that was it zoom she's gone and it would take me hours to get her to relax and go to him for a snuggle.
    ANYWAY

    last night dano got her bowl and she trotted behind him into the kitchen and i was like WOW!!!
    he pulled out the chicken necks and let her sniff them (thump thump thump goes the tail) and then the mince and then the chicken mince and then a bit of yoghurt. picks up the bowl and says comon gyps and walks straight out the back door (she followed him wagging her tail )( i nearly had a heart attack and couldnt believe my eyes because this is where her anxiety usually is worst.
    and then she ate her food slowly and relaxedly the entire bowl!!!!

    i was so happy i nearly cried! i have no idea whats caused this turn around but 9months later here we are!!!

    Love heals a lot of wounds, and I think gyps knows this now.

    There are quite a few members here who do feed veggies however, so they should all be able to help you, Laura.

    Cos lettuce as main vegie
    Celery (small amount)
    beetroot (raw)
    carrot
    silverbeet
    zucchini
    green capsicum
    apples (NO CORES)
    Kiwi fruit
    Broccoli (small amount)

    I use food processor and finely grate it all...put it in 500ml reusable containers and freeze portion sizes. I feed it once a day...vegie should be 15% of their food. I also give 500mg Vitamin C...Extra virgin Olive Oil (for Vitamin E)...ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar (Brand Bragg from health shop)...kelp powder...natural yoghurt every day and 2 salmon oil capsules a day to each. It is fed raw...I do not cook any of their foods.

    Vitamin C is important to help absorb calcium in their body.
