I ask this question because I just moved to Guam, a US territory that doesn't view animals the way the States do. There are more emaciated dogs on this island then I've ever seen in my life. The sad part is most of them have owners but the owners chain them up in the corner of their yards, on 3ft long leashes and don't feed them and don't give them water. I've put dog food in my car to feed the starving dogs I can see but I'm afraid to over feed them! I know that can cause more damage to them. Has anyone nursed a starving dog back to health before?

Please, please check out my blog - there are pictures so you can see the condition of the dogs and know that I'm not exaggerating when I say they are emaciated. Also, if it's not to much trouble, please follow my blog - I'm trying to get a good following so that maybe someone with some power will take notice!

I would just give them small amounts of food at first and slowly increase the amount thet get. for example a dog that should normaly eat 4 cups I would give them 3/4-1 cup at first. Good luck.

That is so sad and kudos to you for trying to help. I hope someone does take notice and changes the laws to protect the animals. I agree with the previous post probably a little less than a cup at a time to start with a couple of times a day.

Thank you all for your replies and advice! I hope I'm not over feeding!! I've been giving at least a cup. I just feel so bad for them and it's hard not to want to give them lots of food!
Silly me forgot to put my blog name on my post - it's saveguamsdogs.blogspot.com - please stop by for me details on the problem!

Thanks again!
