After being tested for worms, diabetes, etc. our 15 yr. old American Cocker has been cleared of all possible critters. She weighs 18 lbs. and is very petite; however, she seems hungry all the time. We have fed her Nutro's Natural Balance for Seniors chicken/rice blend dry food about 1-1/3 cup per day. Is there a supplement she can take to reduce her hunger? Her growling at us until we feed her some of her food has become very trying. The energizer bunny has nothing over her. She has been on Nutro dry food all her life and never behaved like this before. What do you suggest we do? Barbara

Has your veterinarian checked a stool sample for digestive capability? Sometimes more pancreatic enzymes are necessary. I would start by using the homeopathic H2O-IONX to aid digestion. I would also give PROBIOTICS which improves intestinal flora and helps to break down the food. OMEGA 3,6,9 would be helpful to decrease inflammation in the gut. Providing extra calories in the diet in the diet by adding extra fat such as olive or coconut oil to the food should be satisfying if she has enough bile to transport it in the blood stream.
