I have been feeding my dog since I got her 5 years ago with dry food, mixed with a bit of "broth" made from canned. She is an avid over-eater. When she was a stray she was hungry, and won't ever forget it. As a result, she is over weight, even though I use "healthy weight" dry food. I just heard that dry food was NOT the best way to feed an over weight dog. The dog drinks water after eating, and the food swells up, and the stomache gets stretched out, and the dog feels hungrier. Is this true? Have I been feeding her wrong all this time? She always acts as though she is starving. Has anyone else heard this? P.S. I try not to over feed, but I know her weight problem is my fault in the end. sigh.
