    Hello again to you too Bobby dog,
    Thank you again for another great site! I will be looking at this one as well! I knew this was a great place to come! There is so much wonderful information to be had from people like yourself who have experienced similar situations.

    A quick up date. I called my vet and she suggested to give my little one pepto bismol to get her belly calm down first. That worked like a charm!

    She said then to introduce each of the foods separately for a few days and to add a little water. First, start her off with boiled non-seasoned white rice with a little water 1/2 cup in the a.m. and again in the p.m. for three days. If everything is working good then introduce her to just boiled chicken no skin or seasoning just plain chicken with a little water 1/2 cup in the a.m. and again in the p.m. for three days. She said to give her a call in a week and we will go from there. So far she is doing great no diarrhea or constipation!

    Again, I would like to thank everyone for their help! I hope with the information I just added maybe I can help someone else’s baby who may be going through what my little one is!

    Hello, Bobby dog,
    I understand your concern as I am also concerned that is why I am here. My little has been to the vet from the very beginning, she has been tested for obstruction, tumors, cancer, and so forth. According to the vet she is healthy just showing her age. As the vet put it her digestive track is slowing down so she needs some help!

    Before, I changed my dogs diet I did consult my vet. She said it was fine and she liked the idea because she knew how finicky my little one is.

    Thank you for the website link I really haven’t had a chance to get a good look at it but I love the idea that The vet nutritionists at Balance IT will also work with my Vet. That is important to me!
    Thank you for your help 🙂

    anonymously, I agree with you about a lot of inaccurate information on the internet. Before, I changed my dogs diet I did consult my vet to see what I was going to give her was okay. She said it was fine and she liked the idea. Then again, I asked my vet when she started having diarrhea and my vet suggested adding pumpkin to settle her stomach down and it did work but my little one does not like pumpkin.

    As far as prescription dog food maybe you are right and then again maybe you are wrong. I just want more of a natural approach without any additives, fillers, etc.

    I came here to see if anyone else had similar problems when they started their furbabies on homemade food and what they did that helped them. My vet is very much involved in my babies condition.
    Thank you for your help 🙂
