New diet

August 31st, 2011 at 06:53 pm

The vet specialist that we went to last Friday has put my dog on a special diet. Hill's prescription diet. This dog has always been a very picky eater and does NOT like any dog food. She wants people food. So, of course, we are having to force feed her. I had to buy a whole case of it at the vets yesterday and it was the big cans. I am sure we will have to throw some of it away. A big can will probably go bad before she finishes it.
Today, I found some of the Hill's prescription treats and we bought those.
Of course, they are way too big for her (she is 4 pounds now) so we had to break them in pieces. She does like that. I sure hope this helps her get better cause I feel so sad when she cries and begs for our food.
I did do some grocery shopping yesterday and saved $9 buying sprite on sale. I will add that to my challenge money.

Prev. total $15,559.00
today 9.00
new total $15,568.00

    Can you freeze part of the dog food? Most wet dog and cat food can be frozen and then just take it out 24 hours in advance of feeding so it can thaw in the fridge.

    Never thought of that. Good advice, thanks!

    I know how you feel. Our cat got put on Hill's wet food after his recent discomfort, and he just refused it for days. We finally got scared and got the vet to prescribe a Hill's dry food instead and he'd eat that, though he was glad to get back to his regular dry food.

    Hope she'll be feeling better soon and like her new food. What type is it? Did they find out what might be wrong?

    The food is called Hill's z/d. They think she has inflammatory bowel disease.
