Life with Jasmine and Juliet, Our Rescued Dachshunds

Random notes on our experience with our two rescued miniature dachshunds

Tummy Ache

on July 1, 2008

Jasmine has been having stomach problems for the last couple of days.  I’m pretty sure that it’s because of a change in dog food.  Eukanuba, our preferred food for both canned and kibble, changed their formulas for their canned dog food.  We generally give Jasmine a tablespoon of canned dog food mixed with warm water to make a gravy for her dry kibble.

We made the change a few days ago, and for the last two days, Jasmine has been having…issues.  Last night, she also soiled inside the house, rendering the carpet runner in our front halllway a relic for the trash can (no big loss).  Poor baby.  She still has issues with signaling us when she has to go out, and I can’t seem to teach her how to properly let us know when she needs to go–especially when it’s urgent.

I had one can left of the old stuff, so I’m going to ease her into the new food over the next week or so.  I should have done that in the first place, but I thought that Eukanuba to Eukanuba shouldn’t be a big change.  I’m also wondering if it’s something she could have picked up at the kennel, but it’s been some time since she returned…it would have shown up immediately.

Jasmine is still her rompy/sleepy/rompy self, so I’m not too worried.  Okay, so I’m a LITTLE worried.  What Mom wouldn’t be?  If she doesn’t adjust well within the next few days, it’s off to the vet we go.  She’s due for shots anyway.

    I think this stomach thing might be going around. We’ve had to take Kona to the vet because he kept throwing up… turns out it a stomach flu he picked up at doggy day care (he got sick the day after we brought him). They ruled out obstuction and parasites. Apparently, our vet has seen this type of illnesses in the last few months in dogs that are exposed to other dogs and such…

    But anyway, hopefully Jazzy feels better soon! Have a happy fourth!
