We have had a time with Dag these past couple of weeks. Our trainer said he was food saturated, only feed him once a day. He could use to loose a couple pounds as well. We agreed. He wasn't over weight but wasn't lean either.
We started that process which was interesting and difficult. At 6:30 every night, like clockwork he tells us he is hungry.
Well he must have eaten something that didn't agree with him and got an upset stomach. Wow, that was brutal. We took him to the vet, $150 later the confirmed he had an upset stomach and gave us an antibiotic. Boiled chicken and rice diet. We did that for a week, skipped training, then he started limping really badly, back leg. I was able to narrow it down to a toe. No idea what he did. The only thing I can think of is he caught it between a deck board or bruised a pad. No training that week.
Then he got lethargic, lazy. You could tell he didn't feel good. I told my wife if he wasn't better by morning, we were taking him back to the vet. The next morning he acted a little better. By the day after he was back to normal but no training this week either.
Now we are transitioning back to kibble and he wants nothing to do with it since he has had chicken and rice for the past week plus. So far tonight he hasn't eaten. I don't blame him a bit. Who wants kibble when you've been eating chicken and rice? However, between being sick and the diet change, I'm concerned he is loosing too much weight.
I am anxious to get him back in training. I haven't worked with him a lot since he has been sick. He got a quick training session tonight so he has had treats but that isn't much food for a growing boy. I'm going to leave the kibble down for awhile tonight to see if he eats. He needs his strength to get over his illness.
Thanks, I just wanted to get that out to hopefully make ME feel better.

Dagr von Kaltwasser
That is his pedigree. In short, East German and Czech I believe.
