    Sorry, I read that back and I ment to put "not a heavy weight". I would rather them be over weight than under weight especially if they are hay and foraged based. Are you going to put them on a diet? That's good you bought them forward - I brought maples fives weeks early as that's how it worked out for a Friday one month early. I'm sorry that you have to go through a double dental

    I'm really surprised that Joey as well as Boo will need to have dentals. Boo, I can understand, but it's a mystery really why Joey now has a dental problem.

    I can't imagine they are that much overweight and I guess it will be difficult to know how to reduce it. Perhaps you should make them all run round the house each morning before they get any forage

    I've just seen your update and it is certainly good that you took them in early.
    Syrups gained a lot of weight and I believe this is perhaps hay cookies. Isn't there a type of grass that Is fattening? I am not putting her on a diet though

    Alfalfa has more calories than other grass. I wouldn't think that hay cookies are made with Alfalfa though.

    Becky says really important not to be overweight, esp now he is reaching age where potentially arthiritis might kick in, apparently they find it loads harder to manage if they are fat. No diets though til after dentals

    She’s a good one isn’t she

    I always trusted her at our local vets where she worked for years, but I didn’t always trust the practice/facilities as a whole hence regularly absconding to CL whenever something tricky was going on, then I moved there full time when Becky left.
    Even though she was good before she seems to have come on amazingly and I’ve seen a huge difference in her in her two months at CL.

    Hope Boo’s mouth is feeling loads better.

    Awww thank you. You're right about needing the right person and the right practice. I'm certainly very pleased with her
