Thanks guys for the tips. We have racked our brains for months trying to determine anything at all that could be causing the upper respiratory issues. Nothing comes to mind that has changed. His blankets are washed in “Hypoallergenic” soap, and I also have seasonal allergies myself so we use nothing scented, not even our deodorant or soap. Due to our history of adopting older dogs, we don’t have carpet anymore, we installed tile floors and use throw rugs which are washed often, nothing different since the day he was adopted 4 years ago and this started one year ago. Scoured outside as well looking for anything new, and nothing, but it seems to be steady with Freddie regardless of season. I had hopes that the hard freeze would end his issues, but nothing different. Vet gives him clean report, blood work good, appetite good, just damn post nasal drip and eye discharge…looks like my friend who has a bad case of hayfever in spring, but freddies lasts all year.

Thanks anonymous! Freddie has absolutely zero dermatological symptoms though, no skin changes, itching, nothing…it is 100% upper respiratory as I said, should I still see a dermatologist? Thanks for the reply!!
Bobby dog I bought Fresh Pet vital chicken roll last night…he LOVED it!! I’m so happy, now he’ll get the nutrients he needs, thank you so much!
Thanks Bobby dog the Fresh Pet rolls look really neat, will pick one up tonight. Has in it exactly what I make for Freddie, but also has the nutrients I am missing…thanks
Excellent idea, thank you so much.
Thanks again anon101…didn’t know that about the orijens. Do you mix the chicken into Zignature brand at your place? Fred would just pull the chicken out of the bowl. And 100% agreed, hunger is the best motivator. It’s me that needs fixing, just wanted to hear it from someone else. Thanks!
I do that, he leaves the kibble like it’s poison. I certainly don’t mind adding in real food, as long as he is actually getting some kibble into his body too. He isn’t right now, unless it’s accidentally stuck to a chicken chunk. OK, skipped meals will be next, just hated it cause he’s only like 15 lbs. I need to man up I think. Thanks for the reply anon101
Ps) great idea on the pseudo broth.
