My dog Tiki is tired a lot he is only 3 years old and I want him more active.

There are many reasons your dog could be tired and without knowing more it is hard to comment. First thing you might want to do is have a full blood panel done by your vet to rule out anything of a medical concern. Next, you may want to change his diet to one that is homemade: please see the work of Richard Pitcairn, "Natural Health for Dogs and Cats", "The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat" by Juliette de Bairacli Levy and "The Barf Diet" by Ian Billinghurst for more information and recipes. In addition, please see this website ( for the posting entitled "Show Dog with Low Energy".
