My dog, Lexi, is an older rescue dog. Her exact age is unknown, but we estimate between 10-14 yrs. She is a Shih Tzu mix who weighs about 10 lbs. She only has a few teeth left and she recently began showing symptoms of congestive heart failure. She has never really been an enthusiastic eater and will often skip meals. A few weeks ago, she stopped eating altogether. Unsure if this was a symptom of her illness or a result of her inability to chew the dry food, I frantically went to the store to find moist food that she would eat. I bought several options, but Vital was the DEFINITE winner! Lexi LOVES this food! She jumps around with the energy of a puppy the minute I pull the bag out and greedily devours her food! She didn't have any digestive issues switching to Vital, and I love that it is not messy like some other moist foods can be and it actually smells good!
