If something is wrong then please tell me, we began to feed her the vegetarian meals (dry corn), mixed with beef stew. I'm guessing I should stop feeding her beef? Would switching to chicken help? And if possible, are there any specific brands you would recommend? Thank you.

And thank you to everybody else who replied, I will do what I can for her. Luckily, I live right next to the lake so she gets to swim every now and then.
