This dog! gosh she has taken over my life in unexpected ways.
The first couple of days went fine - she ate, her poop looked good and then things went down hill. A combination of new food, water, the stress of the flight all caused her to have a major stomach upset.
She started having really bad diarrhea which became (excuse the graphicness) bloody and full of mucus. Naturally I became concerned.
She continued to be super active and to drink but the only thing I could get her to really eat has been bits of cheese.
I should note that I was not and am not concerned that she has parvo. She has all of her shots, she exhibits no signs of parvo and her poo while gross does not smell like parvo (I did rescue for a lot of years before retiring a few years back.)
That being said I dewormed her (just in case) and started her on Parvaid and Vibactra because they are great for clearing up intestinal upsets.
Her poop started looking better by the next day but she still has shown no real enthusiasm for dog food (canned or dry) she has however continued to devour cheese.
Anyway I say all this long back story to get to this point: I have never let a dog eat off of my plate before today. I sat down on the couch with a bowl of mashed butternut squash and the little freak went crazy. Seeing as how she has not been eating much ... I let her have at it.
Maybe she is like her Mum and prefers veggies?
She cannot just eat cheese and squash the rest of her life! suggestions? Sorry this is so rambling!
