, I can help you with your question today.
Is he getting the sardines daily?
Sardines are fine on a daily basis, they do have a good number of calories and fat to help maintain his weight.
I am a little concerned about the oil, could you get them packed in water instead?
Yes I could do but I currently have about a months supply in oil. what if I bought some in water and alternated them?
That sounds like a good start.
Has he ever had an issue previously with pancreatitis?
When he was a puppy he had sickness and diarrhoea that was when I started feeding him a diet stomach
He's not had pancreatitis
I would be much more concerned if he had a history of pancreatitis.
I think we have a good plan.
Alternate the oil and water until the supply of sardines in oil is gone. Then you can switch to sardines in water only.
You can also supplement his regular kibble with puppy formula too.
