It’s been a whole month since George’s last episode of sick … oh no, should we not jinx ourselves?
So all his getting sick was he needed more food. But why the change? Ever since he came to us, I had been giving him 100 g of raw meat plus carrots or peas or even mashed potatoes sometimes – and he was fine. Occasionally he got sick. I was told to give him bedtime biscuits.
And then in January – every single night he was sick. Sometimes he actually threw up mulch but mostly bile. Someone suggested splitting his dinner and I fed him once regularly and then gave him some more before we went to sleep – but nothing worked – until I increased his intake to 125 g per meal. And I added a heaped teaspoonful of pumpkin puree and after having spoken to a specialist, I sprinkled Foragers from Mr. Slobberchops on his meal. I also spoke to Honey’s Real Dog Food and given the history that had been fine all along, they didn’t think it has to be the raw food. But it could help to add some warmed up Beef Bone Broth. That way it could help take away any acidic element from the food.And guess what? He hasn’t been sick at all since then.
Was it the increased amount of food, and not just bedtime biscuits? Was it the pumpkin puree and the Foragers? Whatever it was – I am not changing the “formula” – thank heavens it has stopped. In fact the whole time he was at the House of Mutt he had been fine.
I hope this is the last of any postings about George’s sick!
