Some members have had this chat before. Here's a link http://www.cavaliertalk.com/forums/showthread.php?42993-Raw-food-diets-and-chicken The thread starts off about feeding raw but Rod gave some excellent advice about his opinion of wet vs dry food. Awhile ago a similar thread was started about this topic. Some of the arguments for feeding wet food did prompt me to switch one of my cavaliers meals to wet only for one meal a day. He's over a year old now but I still feed twice a day, it just works for me. I do not think cavaliers are fussy eaters, I do think they are wonderful of training us adults to give them exactly what they want. Smart little things:)

Im kinda in the same boat..oliver was wayyy over weight. i want to keep maggie at a healthy food.

I feed her acana dry..howeve..shes picky and wont just eat it (rollyeyes) so i found mixing a healthy wet into it..making it kinda like a oatmeal type thing..works..as long as i switch back and forth between flavors of wet (beef, and chicken) keep it interesting.
im constantly taking pictures of her body sahpe and sending it to my breeder just to Make sure she still looks at a healthy weight (haha i can be so annoying)

the people at bosleys had me try tripette as well..it worked for a bit Stinks to no end..im kinda glad shes settled on liking the chicken or beef.
