Mitz went to see the vet this morning. I called them because one of her carnassials looked bruised, for lack of a better word. I started looking up what it might be, and every picture made me increasingly worried that it was abscessed. I love living in South Dakota because I called the vet's office at 11:15, and got an appointment at 11:30. Where else does that happen? (0:
A finger went into an inappropriate place, judging by the look on her face. It took 3 people and a muzzle to get her nails cut. The tooth is just chipped, thankfully, but an appointment is coming in October to extract the tooth and get her spayed. She didn't trust the treats the vet gave her afterword, she maintained eye contact with him while spitting them on the floor. We had to tell her they were treats before she lowered her suspicious gaze enough to try them, lol.
The only thing I'd like some advice on is how to get her weight down a little bit. She's 30lbs. We're giving her extra exercise, but how much should I be feeding her for a diet? Which brand of food do you use when yours need to trim up?
Thanks ahead for any advice.

Thanks guys, I think the green bean diet is the way to go. She's eating Purina Dog Chow right now. I wish I could get her to eat something healthier, but we've tried Blue Buffalo, Iams, Science Diet... she hates everything except Dog Chow. She also gets a spoonful of peanut butter a day, a calcium chew, and a glucosamine chondroitin supplement.
. We use either Taste of the Wild or Canidae(has rice) but NOT corn. The green beans are great to for making them feel fuller. Teddy my one rescue is on a green bean diet but he won't eat the green beans mixed in with his food but likes them as "treats" awhile after his food, he gets 1/3 cup 3 times a day but it also depends on their exercise level.
Good luck and i'm still hoping to get back to Sioux Falls yet this fall and maybe we can meet!
