7yrs old and weighs 4 pounds

Okay thanks

I really like the Royal Canin products

They are quite palatable and high quality

You can add no salt chicken broth to make them even tastier

She is on Royal Caniin right now and won’t eat it. She eats small amounts not even enough to keep her blood sugar up.

Okay

And have you tried the no salt chicken broth?

I had a very finicky English Setter who for 15 years I added this and cottage cheese to her meal
