    Morning Dr. Janey,

    Can you please advise me how much I must feed my Jack Russells.

    They get cooked food in the mornings and they get dry kibbles in the afternoon.

    Chiara is 11 years old, Didi is 10 years old and Max is 9 years old. They are active but not overly active.
    Their weight is between 9 – 10kg.

    Looking forward to hear from you soon.

    Kind regards,

      Thank you for your question Tanya. I will definitely address your question of how much to feed in the coming episodes.

    Morning Dr Janey,
    I too would like to know how much I should be feeding my Jack Russells.
    They get dry Hill’s kibble in the mornings (about twice a week I give them a cooked scrambled egg each) and cooked food with some kibbles in the evenings. Max is 10 years old, Jake is 4 years old. Max recently had crystals removed from his bladder and is on Hill’s Prescription kibble for this. Max’s weight has always been around 7.5 – 8kg all his life, but he is now putting on weight very easily. Jake is a stocky build, but I battle with his weight – he is 12kg. Thank you, kind regards, Michelle

    Hi Dr Janey, I have two Dachshunds ages 10 and 11. I cannot feed them kibble because they seem to be allergic to grains. I started a raw diet last year and they have done well on it. Last week my 10 year old girl Mandy developed bloody diarrhoea. I took her to the vet and the vet said the cause if probably due to the food. The place I get my food is registered and they periodically test batches for salmonella and e coli. This obviously does not guarantee that every batch is clear. The food consists of chichen, venison, ostrich and beef. I also feed them steamed pumpkin. I am at the moment not very happy to continue on the raw because of the above. Took my girl to another vet yesterday because there was no progress in her condition. The vet gave her antibiotics and she is doing much better. I tried Vondis once but there appears to be more grain than protein in it.

    Hi Dr Janey, is raw bad for dogs? My Dachshunds have been on raw for just over a year and my one girl developed bloods diarrhoea. She has been very sick and was admitted to hospital yesterday for a drip and antibiotics. The vet seems to think the food could have had salmonella in it. The place I get the food from tests random batches for salmonella and e coli. Vondis is full wheat and grains . They cannot eat kibble due to allergies. Please help

    Dear Dr Janey. I have a year old rescue that has extremely bad Snuffles. She sneezes all day and her nose is constantly clogged. She has tested negative for feline aids and leukemia and has been spayed. She has been on Doxysyrup as well as other antibiotics but I suppose because its viral, nothing helps. Please help, I dont know what to do anymore.

    • Dr Janey Posted 20 July 2017 18:41

      Hello Linda, many thanks for your question. I am sorry to hear that your feline friend suffers so much from Snuffles. I look forward to addressing this important issue in a video soon.
