|Nupro is terrific!!!! I mix the skin and coat supplement in with all my dogs food (show or not)... it's basically a miracle working. I couldn't name one downfall of this supplement, I've never seen something that works so wonderful.
Cali, the oldest golden in the household overcame fibrocarcosis two years ago, she was, at the time, not on Nupro because she wasn't a show dog and therefore I didn't think it was necessary.
Well to remove the cancer, parts of her back had to be shaved down...for two months there was no growth of hair so I finally said, hey I'm going to give Nupro a try with her... and within that month, her hair grew back wherever it was missing.
Nupro also restored Cali's "lost youth"...she still acts like a puppy sometimes.
If you look at my page you can see Eden's coat and decide for yourself... before shows, all I have to do is trim her ears, she rarely and barely sheds and has never had a mat in her life. With nupro and a good bath and brush every once in a while grooming with Eden is virtually non-existent.
AS FOR FEEDING:
I just purused your pages because technically weight doesn't matter as much as the breed and activity level of your dogs.
How much are you feeding now?
What are you feeding now?
Make sure whatever you are feeding is a premium quality food, and no that isn't Iams or Purina... it's Canidae, Wellness, Merrick, Blue Buffalo...Always look for main ingredients including: turkey, chicken, lamb, venison, fish, BROWN RICE, oatmeal, and ABSOLUTELY NO CORN..corn does just as much for us (nothing) as it does for our dogs
If your guys are active in the sense that they go for frequent walks throughout the day, RUN in the yard for a couple hours, and/or are just altogether hyper then those dogs need the most food...
If you have lazy and less active dogs that would rather lay on your lap than play frisbee, they should eat less food.
One of my goldens is very lazy, she eats 1½c of food each day... one of my cockers, on the other hand who weighs about 1/4 of what the golden weighs eats 3c of food each day!
All your dogs look like they're in good condition...just remember to make sure they always have a waist, once a bulge forms you know you've been feeding wayyyy too much. Especially with the lab mix (Nate) and the boston terrier...they will be very susceptible to weight gain. If you can give me some more info on what they're doing now, I can help you a little more
