I need Hills RD weight management prescription dog food for my 11 1/2 min pin. She is about 2 pounds overweight (from 4 pounds and couple years ago and when I got her Rx from Pet Smart--[was there for their coupon associated with Alaska Airlines for health certificate). It was only for 6 months so I called and no go on the food unless an office visit. I tried a couple other over the counter weight management foods and they didn't help, she put some weight back on and wasn't full like she gets with the Hills RD, sometimes not even eating it all and PRINCESS is a pig when it comes to food of any kind!! I was in California origninally and now in Washington in a rural very small border town, Oroville There was one vet in CA that I usually took her to and they would order it for me. I haven't found a vet her that will do that except one and that vet doesn't have access to the brand I want. Can you help?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about and?
Customer: Princess is old but very loved and happy. She's my EMS animal. She goes everywhere with me and she thinks she's a person (I think!) She's the boss. Princess has a cough when she barks or gets too excited and the CA vet's receiptionist and another office both said she probably has water on lungs (I think that's what they said) I do not have money for high cost to comfirm this. I take very good care of her. She had a hernia removed, was spayed and had an absessed tooth pulled by 3 years old. She has been to vet twice for being sick in her lifetime, last was over 6 years ago. All vaccines and rabies
up to date, no worms, and she has arthritis
! No I haven't taken her to vet for it, Princess told me so...(in her walk, ability to jump or run, at times not wanting to or stiffer than usual) I don't give her any medication because she doesn't ask for it. I have twice over 2 years and once was she slipped and hurt her self and other was really hurting and it was teeney tiny piece of aspirin.
