We were introduced to Lottie by Rachel White from Cardiff, who describes her as ‘She is an absolute angel and so happy to be a part of a loving family.’

When Rachel first rescued Lottie just over 2 weeks ago, she had a horrible operation to remove a huge growth on her back leg, which wasn’t healing properly. Now after a lot of ‘TLC’ the wound has finally almost healed. We will share with you the photos and stories of Lottie’s progress on this page.

Since Rachel has taken care of her, Lottie has lost 3kg, which has taken her from 30.8kg to 27.8kg.

Rachel is going to weigh Lottie  every 2 weeks. Her next weigh-in will be 15th July.

She is also measuring her. Her first measurements are:

  • Chest area: 29.5 inches
  • Stomach:33 inches.

Stomach – 33 inches

Rachel is feeding her Porky Pooch mostly, mixed with a small amount of Lamb 

Senior. She is already more alert and happier and the vets are thrilled.

“We want to to try and get her weight down to at least 20kgs which will help
her arthritis no end.” says Rachel.

 At CSJ, we’ve worked out a diet of: 
  • 1 x Porky Pooch
  • 1 x Lamb Senior
  • 1 x No Ake
  • 1 x box of Dem bones
Dem Bones!  are low calorie treats, which can also act as appetite suppressors. Get Over! herbs or No Ake! will help with arthritic pain.

Chest – 29.5 inches

Now Rachel says “She’s.really interested in the herbs. She doesn’t show she is in any pain, but she is amazingly resilient. It’s only looking at her paw joints and back you can
tell how arthritic she is. Vets have said it will improve so much with her weight loss.”Really looking forward in sharing her progress with you. “I am a big lover of CSJ, as I feed my dogs on it and I always promote the food. Anyone who is asking about Lottie I am always telling them about Porky Pooch!
