A few weeks ago a friend of ours gave us some dog food & treats they had gotten from a friend when their dog died unexpectedly. I looked through the bags of treats & noticed there were some very large freeze-dried treats in one of the bags. One evening I gave one of these large treats to Digby & he was DELIGHTED!

The next day Digby was not wanting to participate in any of his regular activities, & we attributed it to the rain. He really didn't want to go for a walk, & I had to drag him off the front steps, & most of the walk he was very slow.
Later that night I looked at the bag of treats I had given him & discovered that these are not actually treats. They are "part of a dehydrated meal plan". Each piece is 1.5 lbs of meat you are supposed to rehydrate them & feed a dog of Digby's size 6 of them a day! Oops, I guess I'll read the labels a little better on the other bags!
He has fully recovered, & is begging me for more treats...
