Not much yet... the poultry/sweet potato stuff is a bit messy for training treats! Besides, my obedience trainer is out with the flu too.

Tomorrow is agility night, and if he seems REALLY fine, I may take him for that... It's rewarding enough in itself that I don't have to use many treats.

Wow! I am catching up...so glad to read Kodi is on the mend. Gosh just when things are rolling along just fine, something unexpected happens! Kodi is a healthy dog he will get over this quickly.

He's definitely feeling better, Robbie. It's hard to figure out how much wet sweet potato/turkey mush equals his normal serving of kibble. He seems starving, but I don't want to feed him too much and cause problems, either.

The good news is that since we had to do the fecal anyway, they sent it to check for parasites (always another danger with show dogs, as I'm sure you know) and he was clean from that perspective.

The vet was right, and just a couple of days on the abx and probiotics, and he's a different dog. I just want to keep him on the turkey/sweet potato until I'm SURE we are well past all of this!

Antibiotic and probiotic for a few days, and Maccabee was a different dog!

Glad Kodi is feeling better.

Is that what Macabee had too?

I am just getting back to the Forum and am glad to read that Kodi has recovered from his bout with Clostridium. From what you wrote, it was no fun at all. I have 3 dogs (of 4) trying to eat grass on the lawn whenever we go out, and it is really difficult to stop all of them. They are really sneaky about it. They look as if they are sniffing, and then they nibble some. Fortunately, nobody's tummy is upset.

I'm not positive that's what it was, Starr... Kodi eats grass all the time. Too. (we call him the little cow dog!). I'll probably never know how it happened. I guess some forms of Clostridium they have un their gut anyway, and it's only bad if they get an overgrowth. That kind can even be brought on by stress. So who knows?
