Overeating, doggie dementia?
We have recently combined a household and this involves my 18 year old miniature poodle, Princess, and my husband's 10 year old Chihuahua mix Link. They have both always had a bowl of dry food out for snacking and a bit of wet food in the mornings as they've gotten older.
My problem is that Princess has started overeating to the point of vomiting most days. We can go a week without an incident or wash her bedding every other day. I've taken her to the vet and they say nothing is wrong other than she is old enough to see some memory lapses.
My husband seems unwilling to change Link's feeding habits too drastically.
I'm kind of at a loss here...
Ideas? Thoughts? A good means of dealing with a sweet yet forgetful old lady dog?
