I feel terrible that I’ve been gone all week and haven’t posted a thing. This past week was crazy and exhausting. My poor little dog Cody has been so sick all week and has kept us up for the past 3 nights asking to be let out every 2 hours.
Cody is an English Lab who eats everything you can imagine and never gets sick. So when he vomited 2 days in a row and then kept running to go outside I knew something wasn’t right. Yet, he was relatively playful and still wanted to eat. Staying up all night and then busy working during the day makes for a very tired ME!The culprit appears to be his food. The company that we purchase his food from changed their packaging but I didn’t know they changed the ingredients – all of them. He’s been eating the same kibble for years, so when I mentioned to the gal at PetSmart, the spokesperson for this brand about the new packaging, she just said they gave it a face lift. Apparently though they added more fat to his kibble resulting in major intestinal upset, exhaustion, a sore bottom and a dose of medication. Rule of thumb: Never switch a dog over to new food without gradually weening them off the old – unfortunately I wasn’t aware of the change. Hopefully we will all be catching up on our rest now.
