My Vet laughs when I tell him I have to sneak the crappy dog food to the check out line. And he said the same thing..."some people feed Mighty Dog and their dogs live to 15."
The only way Birdie will cooperate with a nail trimming is if I give her milkway candy bars. It is the only way that she will sit, give me a paw and let me clip a nail without a struggle, needing to restrain her or paying someone else to do it. Seriously.
I divide the small bite sized square ones into 4 pieces, she gets one piece per nail. I've tried just about everything, bacon, bologna, cheese, hot dogs, roast beast, steak and even ice cream. She'll only cooperate for a bite of milkway candy bar.
Nuts, I tell you, nuts.
