AKB Posted September 19, 2007 Report Share Posted September 19, 2007 Arthur isn't feeling well. We just got back from the vet. For the moment, we're on a bland diet and keeping quiet. I am a smidge neurotic, I always think worst case scenario with my pets, and this morning Arthur was not behaving normally, and his stomach was three times its normal size. So I was worried about bloat, or a blockage, or twisted stomach. He had a bit of an upset stomach when we went outside, not like when he had parvo but his stool was way looser than it should have been. He wasn't standing oddly or trying to vomit but we went straight to the vet anyway. He doesn't think it's anything serious, his temperature was a little high but he doesn't like riding in the car or going to the vet's office (he especially hates the scale for some reason), so that alone could be it. He does not think that any of the three issues about which I was concerned are the problem. So that is good- he suspects that because he had such a rough start in life with the parvo and months of neglect before that Arthur may always have a bit of a sensitive stomach. I'm not sure what to do about this exactly. I of course plan to read up on the subject but does anyone have experience with this? Should I maybe add yogurt to his diet and see how that goes? Would smaller meals help? He eats Wellness Lamb and rice, once his stomach is settled shoudl I try switching his diet? Although that could create a whole new set of issues. I'm just worried right now. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
