  1. No throwing up since the switch. Thanks for the help
  2. So I switches it up this morning. Gave him 1 cup THK, and 2/3 cup kibble. He ate it all, and finished his siblings food. Guess he'll eat the kibble as long as it's in the THK. So that's great!
  3. The vomit does look like his food, but not as much as he's eaten. He throws up a small handful. It's probably about an 1/8 of the food he's eaten. I just switched him. I usually do a gradual switch, but he wasn't that into the kibble he had. He's getting grain free turkey THK. 2 cups before hydration. I can cut back, or add back in some kibble and hope he eats it... I figured he should be fine by a week, and if not, that would be concerning.
  4. I can't quote on my phone for some reason. Mara: his puke looks like the food he's eating. He's going to the bathroom normal, and it looks fine. I will keep a watch on it. I don't know if he'll eat 50/50. It's possible, but he's not a fan of kibble. He needs to gain weight, so I'm trying to feed him more, so I figured 2 cups spread out didn't necessarily seem like a large volume. That's scary and sad about your dogs lymphoma. I had a ruddy Abyssinian, that meant the world to me, that passed away from lymphoma. Sue: he used to chew up and swallow all kinds of toys, fibrous, rubber, even rocks, etc. He's not like that anymore. He does chew sticks still and swallow bits. He gets raw chicken quarters, but hasn't had one in a few weeks. He's got a high metabolism, and is always running. He does a lot of full on sprinting during our hikes. He used to be fine with just 2 cups a day. He even had a little pudge at one point. Then something changed. He started eating less of his food, and started losing weight. I realized it was one of my females, Cedar, trying to gain alpha position over him. She's been low man until Riser came, and she's found a new confidence, and a best friend. She loves him and they're inseparable, but she's also bossy. She wanted to be alpha when she came into our pack, but Seek is definitely top dog and wouldn't allow it. So long story short, she was intimidating him away from eating. She would go into the room he eats in and send out vibes. Other times she would go to his bowl to eat, and growl at him for going in there. I put an end to it, when I realized what was happening. But then he sort of would be worried about his food after that. All has been sorted, and he's in a safe place, and has food he loves, so it's back to normal. Except the throwing up
  5. My dog is a bit too thin, and he's picky about eating kibble. I try to give him more food, but he leaves quite a bit in the bowl, and doesn't eat the extra food. So I decided to switch his food to something he would die for, The Honest Kitchen. He loves it! He'll eat as much as I give him. I've been giving him four cups a day; two in the morning, two at night. He's been on the food for about 4 days. He's thrown up four times in the last 3 days. It's strange though, I'll feed him his breakfast, and he's fine all day, then will throw up once in the evening, many many hours after he's eaten. I'm guessing he has a sensitive stomach and will take time to adjust, but throwing up 8-12 hours after eating is baffling me. Other than that he seems normal, happy, playful, ready to work, alert, and just his usual self. Any ideas?
  6. My friend has a bc mix that recently (6 weeks ago) started secreting her anal glands. She's 12 years old. Whenever my dogs have had this happen, it's been due to food. Once the food is changed, problem goes away. Ideas?
  7. Collars on when we leave the house, inside or going out to play in the pasture, they're off. my dogs stick around, and I'm with them when they're outaide. Speaking of safety, I'm curious of everyone's preference on having either quick release or belt buckle style, and why?
  8. Yes that makes sense. It's a great deal! Thanks! Thanks! We use the day glo collars for swimming, but the Tufflex sounds nicer for daily use.
  9. Do you know the difference between the Tufflex and the Day-Glo collars? They appear similar, but the Day-Glo are "see-through" and the Tufflex aren't. Are the Tufflex softer than the Day-Glo? I have 3 of the Day-Glo collars, and they seem hard.
  10. The problem with these collar we are all mentioning is that they don't come with quick release buckles. I believe you can find them with those (maybe boutique stores), but generally not. This is the only downside I see to these collars. I've heard horror stories of dog fights, jaws getting stuck, and no way to release the dogs.
  11. Hmm, we don't need rabies or registration tags, because we live in the country. If you live in the city you would (at least to my knowledge. You could put them on the D ring. Yes, I hook the leash to the O ring. Doesn't cause any discomfort. It does make the collar go in a sort "V" shape, like a teardrop on the dogs neck.
  12. Thishttp://www.gundogsupply.com/filson-double-ring-dog-collar.html is the Filson Are those the plastic ones? We have some of them, and they're great for swimming!
