Q. Hello my 3 year old Cavalier has colitis. She cannot have any grains. Only meat and veggies. I am looking for new ways to help her gain weight

Answered By

A. Have you ever tried diets with hidrolized protein. They can contain grain but because the proteins are split in small pieces the body doesn't recognized them and they didn't react. One of the bests is Hill's z/d ultra allergen free, is expensive but an excellent option for those dogs that can not eat some ingredients.
