Jasper made it through the night with no !!!

Does anyone know how long I should stay with the chicken and rice? and if I need to mix it in with his regular food for a while when I return him to his regular diet?

I'm so happy for you both. Nothing like a normal, quiet day after a scare like that. Sending loving vibes in your directions.

HI Missy!

I have no experience with feeding the chicken and rice, so I can't offer any advice, but I just wanted to say I was really glad to hear Jasper's holding down his food and feeling a bit better!

Missy, my vet told me to give small meals of chicken and rice for 3 days then just go back to reg meals. Cicero did fine with that. I'm glad Jasper is over his little sick spell.

Glad to hear Jasper is better. I don't know how long to feed them the rice and chicken, just be sure it is 2/3 chicken 1/3 rice in small amounts. I have feed my share of rice and beef, and to much rice plugs them up. give with lots of water.

Hooray, Missy!

I usually transition back to regular foods. 1/2 chicken/rice + 1/2 regular food (whatever that is) for the first day or two.

Keep watching those stools......

Glad to hear the news! We did about 3 days, then supplemented his regular food with pumpkin for a few days. (It made it easier for him to go back to the dull regular food after that delicious chicken and helped with loose stools to boot!)

chicken and rice is plenty good

Good news!

Now the challenge is going back to regular food after the good stuff! My dogs would love to eat chicken and rice all the time.

Whew for you!

I've read about Jasper getting sick when our Bella threw up after breakfast. I'm glad Jasper is better. I don't know if I should be concerned about Bella, though. We switched to Innova about a month ago--before that she was on Canidae. She would throw up about once a month--that's one of the reasons we switched (besides reading this forum!). But she's still throwing up (a one-time event) a couple times a month.

This morning, our DaniGirl refused to eat. I coaxed Bella and she ate, only to throw it up. Is all this normal? They go outside with one of us watching them so they couldn't have eaten anything. I thought it was odd that Dani refused to eat and Bella finally did only to lose it.

We walk every day and I wondered if they could have picked up a virus. They run and play, even this morning, so my hunch is that it's a normal thing. Any ideas?
