Interesting consequence. I've been feeding Garrus by hand and I think it is helping but the other two dogs seem to think he's getting treats or at least special treatment. Yesterday Leela snarled at him while I was feeding him, and this morning I had to hand feed Hoshi too. I finished feeding him and checked the other two's bowls and she had only eaten half. I held some kibble in my hand for her and she gobbled it up so i fed her the rest that way.
