Do your English Setters have a "split" or "double nose"? I had 2 E. Setters as a kid. Great dogs and GREAT Hunting dogs too.

Never saw my dogs ribs. Can you post a pic or two? Cut out some of the chicken and add some more veggies. My Black Lab LOVES carrots and broccoli and we buy him both every week.
