This has always helped settle her stomach and the broth is nutritious and gives the necessary fluids. In the past, I have always done a slow taper off this.
I currently give Dionna kibbles in the morning with just a little chicken to get her started (otherwise, she won't eat the kibbles and we can go back on the merry-go-round of her getting too hungry and that triggering throwing up bile). At night, she gets home cooked of boiled white meat chicken, chopped broccoli and steamed yam. The above regimine has really helped stabilize her. I am also thinking of consulting with the nutritionist that everyone has referenced just because I want to make sure that Dionna is getting the best care. How does one set up an appointment--can somebody PM me her contact information (or is there a link on this site somewhere?). Thanks.
Good luck with Django--I know how hard it is when our furbabies are not well.
good for you, I highly recommend Sabine, every dog is different and it is not easy to do this properly without a professional nutritionist. here;s her email firstname.lastname@example.org
Feel free to check out her website at ...http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index.php?page=main
She is on vaccation and I suspect she might be back monday. She is very inexpensive, and your dog will love you for it.
