We finally return the 'Taste of the Wild Sierra Mountain Canine Formula (TOTW)' and gotten the Wellness simple Lamb and rice Formula. And the moment we give it to TOto, he gulped everything down!
His appetite is finally back!
Ever since the diarhhea started 2-3 weeks ago, TOto has been very lethargic and when we thought he is hungry; TOto doesn't really want to eat! And because of his lousy appetite, in the morning he would get so hungry his stomach starts to rumble/tumble but when we gave him food, he refused. We are CONFUSED! And because of the 'gastric' churning, he starts to have diarrhea AGAIN! So everyday we have to try means and ways to make him eat. We tried to gave him lesser portion but fed him 4x a day! It works for a few days and then he starts having diarrhea again!
So now we 'suspect' :
- TOto just doesn't like TOTW.
- TOTW gave TOto allergy.
- It was just a bad batch of Orijen Fish or just a bad batch of TOTW.
- It is the empty stomach which caused the gastric, which caused the diarrhea.
- Orijen +TOTW's protein level is too high and TOto has problem digesting the food.
- TOto who like my mother, need 'RICE' in his diet, hahaha!
Whatever the reason is, after dinner yesterday after feeding TOto with Wellness Lamb and Rice our 'Happy' TOto returns! It has been so long since I see TOto asking for treats and playing with his treats. He was so energetic and happy, he was bouncing off the walls and about the house asking to play!
But if 'Healthy and Happy' TOto is back that means I have to wake up earlier to entertain him in the morning!
This morning, after his morning walk and wipe; he automatically ate the mixed kibbles without coaxing and prompting!
We are keeping our finger crossed!
