I’m sorry for the way that you lost Dixie. I’m going to keep on keeping on and hope that my little one improves. Thank you all for you input and posts.
As of last night, it looks like she has finally gotten over it. After I use up the type of probiotics I received from my vet and what I ordered on-online, I will switch to one of the two brands you both mentioned. Is this the type of thing that I ought to be giving to them as a daily supplement? Or, just when they are ill? Or, once a week or so on a continuing basis? And, how soon should I (if you recommend it) stop feeding them the HSD i/d food and switch to a brand with higher quality ingredients? The idea that I’m paying $2.75/can for corn and pork liver “flavor” vs. a brand with actual meat and whole veggies in it is killing me. Even if it was “formulated” to be bland, they are making a killing off of charging a premium price for selling subsidized GMO corn and what ever other table scraps are in it. While it might be useful when a pet is sick… it doesn’t seem like a product that they could subsist on in a healthy way an thrive. Or, am I being too hard on HSD?
Opps, didn’t catch what you said at first… we’ll also try just a spoonful of the pumpkin with her food like you said… to add a bit more fiber. Thanks again.
Thank you for your response Patty. We had already tried pumpkin, boiled chicken, and rice for a day or two… but she still had diarrhea and wouldn’t eat the pumpkin on its own when offered. That is a good point about the probiotics. We actually asked for some while at the vet and are currently given her some made by Purina. I just ordered more off of Amazon (for $20/w shipping vs. the $48 my vet charged me… go figure) after reading your post. I bet that it will help quite a bit as I believe what you said makes a lot of sense. We’ll give it a shot… thank you!
Hi there, I just posted a question right before you about some problems my dogs are having as well. My advice would be to check out Honest Kitchen. It really helped my dogs with digestive issues until recently when I screwed things up by trying to introduce a different brand of food because they were getting bored with my mixture of Blue Buffalo Freedom and Honest Kitchen that I had been feeding them for the past two years. Here is a link… I really love this company, how it conducts business, treats it’s workers, and creates awesome food for you good buddy: http://www.thehonestkitchen.com/products
