Hello! I have a 10 year old flatcoat named Loosey. She is the most wonderful companion... the most special dog we have owned. As she gets older I am aware that she is nearing her life expectancy. She is not a show dog- just a devoted family member. She has quite a few lipomas now but they don't seem to bother her. We lost a flatcoat to cancer at 5 years old so I've doted on my Loosey. She has arthritis and can't play as she used to.... but she is still bright eyed and tail wagging! We switched her food about six months ago because she wasn't really eating much but would eat my granddogs food when visiting. We feed her Merrick now(6 months). She eats better than before. Her coat has started to turn red. Mostly on her chest and her legs. Could this be her food? She also didn't shed her coat this summer as she usually does. her shedding increased slightly but not like it used to. Any ideas?
