Good point loosie. I will definitely look for an independent nutritionalist to go over the same stuff as well.. see if they are in agreement etc.

You stated that you had the field tested, so be sure to show them the test resutls. Also most important What is in the feed .. Animal Fat? By products?
Corn? Vs corn meal ? Wheat? Rice ? Oats barley alfalfa, grass ? It is a type of Vitamin /supplement again.. what are the ingredients and how much fillers and animal product or by product... don't want any of those !

Oh, and take your scoop ! If you always use the same scoop, take it and show them the scoop size, they should be able to help figure the lbs or oz per scoop

YAY definitely no need to be nervous, they were really nice and explained everything to me

As for what they said-

We are going to give 30 days on the Sentinal performance LS
first week only give 6-8lbs
second week give around 8-10lbs
third week give around 10-13lbs

If by third week he has put on weight we are going to add an omega weight builder. If he does not put on weight we are going to try another feed.


I have scheduled an meeting with an independent nutrionalist and I will be meeting her after work this week at her office. I just have to bring the field testing, a sample of the hay or if I have the result back by then bring them. Take a good clear picture of the feed label to show ingredients etc, take 4 different pictures of bailey (front, back and both sides) to give her a visual and bring a picture of when I first got him to see the slight difference.

So hopefully she will agree with the other nutritionalists so I can have a clear idea of how to get this guy some fat!!

Thanks for the help guys :)
