I swear she grew overnight

Looking at my little Kira, I couldn't help but notice those two baseball bats, called paws
I swear they were much smaller yesterday.

Oh yeah, she grew alright! I'm surprised she feels so well with the giardia- Stosh was miserable with explosive diarrhea.

Not sure if you read my update.
Vet called last night, and said the final results on her giardia were in, and the giardia was not shedding.

Not knowing as much as I'd like to, I understood it as her saying that Kira was OK.
Kira did have a round of Flagyl a couple weeks ago.

I'll finish her treatment, and I have 100% confidence that she'll be fine.

Stools are solid, and energy level and spirits are high.

I'm having a very strong suspicion about her food. I questioned it from the beginning, and many of you chimed in and felt the same way.
One day off the Proplan, and her poop is normal.

Since she's going to be on the ID prescribed food for 2 weeks, I'm wondering if the last week would be a good time to transition Kira over to something grain free?

Today, she is one, frisky firecracker

She's adorable! It's probably in the giardia thread but be aware it can rear it's ugly head again and often takes more than one round of treatment. If the diarrhea returns I would suspect it.

The last week of the ID would be a good time to transtion, however, most grain frees are too high in calcium for puppies. I would hold off until her growth plates have closed to move to a gf kibble.

It's just amazing how much one can learn from this place.

I still have 25 lbs of ProPlan large puppy left. Should I donate it, or let her finish it?

It would be a good time to switch her over to a different food, just add a little with each meal. There's many conflicting opinions about what to feed, you'll just have to see what works. I don't think I'd continue with the Pro Plan though. I tried Nature's Variety Instinct which is grain free when he was a pup, then went to Orijen Large Breed Puppy.

I'd like your opinion on Taste of the Wild.

I can get fairly large bags at a decent price.

Also, Wellness is readily available for me, also at a good price.
