Jasmine was getting better with her rice/cottage cheese bland diet, so we decided to slowly introduce the new Evo dry and canned foods into her diet. We added just a little bit of both to her food, and she seemed to tolerate it. So, we slowly increased the proportions until we reached 100% dog food.
Well, it didn’t work. She went back to having loose stools. Last night, I put her back on the bland diet and stopped the dog food, but the “damage” had already been done. She had to “go” no less than five times last night (each time was worse). To make matters worse, she started vomiting last night and also this morning.
I’ve been watching her closely today. I put her on a fast today to give her body a break, and I’m taking her into the vet tomorrow. Outside of the obvious issues, she seems to be okay. She’s still following me everywhere I go, and has already begged for scratchies this morning.
I just need to solve this food problem. The EVO food seems to be the wrong formula for her, so I’m going to try a gentler chicken and brown rice formula. Of course, she might have a very sensitive tummy, and any food will be an adjustment. I just don’t want to cause her any more intestinal trauma. Poor baby.
