Default My mom is a health concern for my dogs

My mom hasnt had dogs since she was little and when i was 19 i got my first boxer ( myself ) and now i have 2, But my mom treats them like little humans and feeds them just the most absurd stuff, and when its treat time she gives them like 5 treats each,

Ive tryed alot of to get her to understand she can not do that to them, its hurting them, maybe not now but eventually it will. My male has a cast iron stomach he dosent get sick easily or affected by the junk, but my girl pukes, farts, and has bad diarrhea from the affects of my mother.

How can i teach my mom how to feed them only and just their dry food. Are there any good videos out there that shows what happens to dogs if you feed them in this way. Sometimes i could kill my mother because shes just so dum and dosent understand that these arnt just a stray dog i braught home but spent a nice couple hundred to thousand on them.

I have even took there food dishes away into my room and fed them in my room but one day i saw them back into the kitchen and my mom just feeds them, They have turned into terrible moochers now because of my mom. As i said before i am moving to europe and taking Amy my lil girl with me, But bruno will still be back home with my parents and most likly my mother with still be feeding him shit.

PLEASE HELP ME !!!!!!!!!

This is a tough one because parents are the worst listeners and think they know better. My mom grew up always feeding her dogs and cats from the table. When she visits I have to read her the riot act about not feeding Rocco anything from the table. And, I hide the treats. The funniest thing is she sits there and talks to Rocco saying things like, "I know your mommy is so mean not letting you have that yummy bacon."

Unbelievable.

You could explain to your mom that feeding your dog things other than their food could give them pancreatitis and that could be life threatening (and expensive). Do you think she would listen?

Good luck.

I agree with above. My parents & my husbands parents do very well at not giving the girls extras when they visit. We've never given the girls table scraps & treats can sit out with no one asking about giving them treats. Even our boys won't just get in to give them a treat. I wish you the best in getting your mom to understand that what she's doing can in the long run end up hurting your pups. Just keep telling her, maybe one day it will click & she'll understand.

My mom is exactlly the same Rocco, she always says im sorry but mommy wont let you have this or that, I feel really bad to because i really dont think she will open her eyes to anything i say until one of the dogs does get really really sick from what shes doing.

I strickly just give them there try good and one treat each if they do there tricks but thats it. I know its not good for any dog, but my lil girl is really gets affected by it, pukes all the time and farts unbelievable and i dont even wonna talk about the diarrhea..

I swear sometimes the stuff i tell her goes in one ear and out the other.

Okay I think Rocco's mom and Bruno the Boxer must be my siblings cause they are describing my mom!!! Yes....my mother is the queen of passive aggressive behavior.

Give her the vet bill when you have to take your girl in because she is vomiting and having explosive diarrhea. People seem to get the idea when it's them having to shell out the $$.

Man I know how you feel. Had to explain to parents, friends, other family and any visitors...."NO DAMN TABLE SCRAPS OR BEER!!!! HE WILL HAVE EXPLOSIVE DIARRHEA AT 4AM AND I WILL HAVE TO CLEAN IT UP!!!" I told Leo and he didnt believe me....stinky a$$ diarrhea woke up out of his dead sleep and had to suffer through the smell EVEN AFTER I cleaned the carpet....then he understood.

So...I have an idea. Let Mom feed your female whatever food she wants...let her sleep in the room with your mom...she craps like her butt is a water fountain...and mom has to clean it...problem solved lol.

I know your pain. I got my mom on board with Silvia and he weighted raw diet. But my dad feeds her and rocky together and Silvia (11 months) will punk rocky(almost three months) for his food. He is completely against it and tries to sway me with vet this and that. No matter what he won't listen to me or my mom. Tryin to get parents to listen to their kids is near to impossible. I've been trying for months, fits, fights, talking, nothing works.

I feel a lot better knowing I am not alone in this case, But it is a serious problem, But i think your right gracie, next time my girl is really badly sick and has to go to the vet because of what she has eaten, i will leave the bill to my mom to handle.

I think that's a good plan. My mother used to be awful with that. I literally had to lose my temper with her. She used the excuse that I give them people food, well yeah I give them veggies and meat before I cook supper. I don't give them potato chips or gummy worms. Her dog it horrendously over weight and he calls mine anorexic, well Octane is perfect, Rally could actually stand to lose 3 or 4 pounds.
