My boyfriend and all my friends think I have gone insane, but I am adopting a 7 year old female great dane from a kill shelter about 30 miles from me. I went to meet her today and she is an absolute angel, so quiet and kind and just wants love love love! I have a small yard, and my corgi, Tegan... so I am hoping she can spend the last few years of her life with me, happy.
She is a little underweight, had a severe infection when they got her because her sitches from being spayed never got taken out before she became a stray and were in for over a year! She has been through a lot.
I am a 21 year old 5'4" 100 lb girl... everyone thinks I am CRAZY to want her... but I have always wanted a great dane since I was about 8 years old- and she is such a love. I want to help her live a good life in her senior years.
Ayway- I feed my corgi Artimis Maximal: Artemis - Holistic Approach to Pet Food
Which on dogfoodanalysis.com is a 6 star food. He only eats a cup a day cause he has a corgi metabolism... he could gain weight on a cracker a day lol... but I was wondering if this was alright for her. I have done a lot of reading on danes and I know their diet has to be modified slightly from a different breed.
So is this food okay for a senior dane?
If not, what is?
and how much can I expect to feed? 4 cups was what I was reading before...
