Sudden increase in appetite
  • Koji is 22 months old. The last 2 weeks has seen a drop in temperature as we are approaching winter and Koji's food consumption has nearly doubled. Sensitive to the cold, I have started wearing long thermal underwear when we go out. I'm thinking Koji doesn't have that option and so he's had to compensate through food. On the other hand, I didn't notice this last winter. Admittedly, I didn't walk him very much last November because he was recovering from a broken leg. After the final surgery in January when the plate and pins were removed, I decided to walk him more to strengthen his bones and muscles. These days I walk him 3 to 3 1/2 hours a day, and we spend another 45 minutes playing and training in the evening. Has anyone notice this appetite increase in winter?
