Thanks for your advice chrisanne, appreciate anything. What brand what that you used? I have been giving him the nutro for overweight dogs older than 8 years old. My daughter just told me that science diet is one of the only brands that has a good light dog food, she said if its spelled "lite" instead of "light" it doesnt mean its lower in fat at all. She works at petcetera, maybe I will switch to that for a while.
Thank you too KFielder that might be worth looking into.
Also maybe I'll keep a closer eye on whisket while hes in the backyard playing. Im with him on walks and do pick it up from the yard regularly but still I have two dogs so there is sometimes like 6 or so messes to pick up so I suppose its possible but I hope not seeing that I let my dog kiss me, on the face. (my mother would have had a fit lol)
