tonight i boiled chicken, then ultimate choppered it... added white rice, and wah la... easy food for arturo.. he ate it no problem.. still hasnt pooped since i came home, which is normal. his poop when i came home was the usual, soft serve.. hopefully this will ease his stomach. the vet said if he still has the runs onthe chicken and rice i have to bring another sample in and him as well to try to find out what is up..
well he pooped. freaking soft serve again... i am wondering if he has guardia or something else... i will give him 3 days on chicken and rice, and then take a sample to the vet.. 3 days should be enough right? i feel bad for him too, he is not gaining any weight again:(
Aww poor guy and poor you! I'd think if the chicken & rice would firm him up, it should take a couple of days of eating it. It really sucks that you both are going thru all this. Maybe he has coccidia or guardia as suggested?
(and I can't think of "soft serve" ice cream the same way after these threads... )
welll, so far he has had solid poop since friday night...... nothing but chicken and rice.. he has snuck into sonnys bowl and got a mouthful of kibble, i grabbed out of his mouth... starting tuesday i will introduce a small amount of kibble at a time, like 5 kibbles to start..
I'm glad he is starting to feel better. Is your kibble chicken based too? Maybe the kibble you are using is too rich for him?

the kibble was california natural, sometimes its too rich for some dogs.. i bought canidae to wean him on, as thats not as rich as the ca natural.. i wont try that until tuesday night, this way he will be onthe boiled chicken and rice for a full week
