One month ago, I was ready to tear my hair out over Hans's gastric issues.
If anyone wants to see what was going on, the thread is here :
Things have been steadily improving and I am very, very happy to report that we are now 100% raw again, and Hans is eating all his meals, normally, enthusiastically, and without any problems.
No more vomiting, and he has been so much happier and energetic.
This was done without Pepcid, without any sort of medication, just changing one thing that made all the difference: no more RMB.
As much as he loved them, my boy didn't seem to have the acid capacity in his stomach to digest them, so the problem was that they were remaining in his belly, rolling around in there, irritating his digestive tract, causing pain and making him very nauseated.
Poor guy, good thing I asked all the people here and got some very helpful answers!
The first week, I switched him to Ziwipeak and Vital Essentials with a little pumpkin.
Slowly, very slowly over the course of 4 weeks, I added the Darwin's Naturals back into his bowl. I also noticed him scratching with increasing frequency, so I am guessing that the packaged foods were causing the new development.
I had to phase them out, and as of this week, we are on Darwin's,
pumpkin, whatever cooked meats we are having for dinner, Feedsentials and Sunday Sundae from Carmen,
carrots, beets, I mix and match and offer him different things. Also, cooked and raw egg.
I am stuck with a freezer full of duck necks
and today I will thaw some and see if I can stick them in the blender. They should make a nice duck neck Slurpee for my Hans. Thinking of doing this with fish, too.
