Lottie is a German short haired pointer 11 years old - 12 in December. She is from a working and show pedigree. She has no major health issues that we are aware off, never been on any long term medication. Unfortunately she has always been a food obsessed greedy dog so it wasn't unusual for her to have loose stools and go often. As you know she is an amazing swimmer!!!
My husband has a 4 year contract in Montreal, so we had to decide if shipping Lottie to Montreal from the UK was the right thing to do for her and for us, we did have the option to leave her with relatives. We just didn't know how she would handle the 12 hours minimum in a crate. It was heart breaking leaving her and I hadn't actually seen her for 6 weeks prior to her arrival at the airport. We could hear her howling in the cargo collection area before we could see her so we knew she had survived the flight. She has always been a very clean dog but we were amazed to see she had not done anything in her crate, she went crazy when she saw us and did the longest wee you have ever seen.
The first few days she seem a little stiff, panting a lot and diarrhea, we put this down to stress and the journey, but I was concerned she looked a little skinny. Before leaving the UK some friends had recommended we try a raw food diet for her, so I thought this would be an ideal time to try her on it. I did some research online and found Mrs. Meady's. David has delivered every order we have placed and over the last 4 weeks we have watched her put on a few pounds, and regain her energy levels, but best of all she does poo I can pick up and you would think it has come from a Chihuahua. I try to be really strict with her and the only treats she has is from Mrs Meady's Chicken necks, tripe and meaty lamb bones.
I am so pleased we changed her diet and I am certain Lottie is too.
