    ok mums looking to bring Dylan off hills RD

    i've persuaded her that while he needed RD last year he was 48kg, and i basically forced her to put him on to it tell her she was killing him, i done it infront of the vets and they backed me up. so it scared her


    hes not just under 30kg (well done Dylan) but not losing more weight so we feel he needs a diet change

    i just read burns is renown for not putting on weight...........


    the other thing is she needs to be able to get it in germany

    burns and skinners both have stockist there
