    When I got my GD I was told to feed him from a raised bowl. I didn't ask, or question why. I just did.

    When I got my IS I was told by the vets that she was a breed susceptible to bloat, and to feed her from a raised bowl. After reading up on that I found it was the wrong advice, so didn't.

    Fast forward to tonight. Bess had her favourite dinner - rabbit. Cut into two haves so she can eat it better. She only ate one half, and then was the model dog lying quietly for the evening.

    So I ignored the fact she'd only eaten her 'breakfast' at 5 o'clock, so a whole rabbit at 7 was a bit too much. I've spent most of this evening worrying she was going to die.

    There's nothing wrong with her - but before I knew so much I wouldn't even have been worried.

    Good thing? Bad thing? :rolleyes:

    she'll be fine ;)

    We didn't you just ditch the breaky today and give the whole rabbit? Once a day feeding is soooo much easier for me especially so they can have larger meals!

    Because she needs to have 800 g per day, and she decided she didn't like breakkie.:D

    She's been told all day she was not getting her rabbit until she ate her mince!

    (I'm trying to be a stern dog owner here). :D
