    Jagger has had supper and breakfast on the bland diet. The chicken treats I bought are all natural made in the USA, human food grade treats. He has only had 2. And so far so good. I haven't had to take him out a lot for poop breaks. ( he actually hasn't pooped at all yet which is amazing) Also, he seems to be a lot more energized, last night he literally ran circles round my friends police car in the driveway. It was the funniest thing I had ever seen and the most energetic I have ever seen him

    Well he did finally go to the bathroom this morning and it was diarrhea I hope the next few days get better. If not I may need to do the boiled hamburger and rice. It very well may be the chicken that is causing his tummy issue. This process of elimination is hard. I want him to be better, guess this is where the virtue of patience is supposed to kick in :/

    That may be a better ingredient than the chicken actually. Did you put a tablespoon of canned Pumpkin in too.

    I did not do the pumpkin. I do have a can of 100% natural pumpkin. I'm going to give him a little longer with the chicken. I feel bad changing what he eats so much. He doesn't seem to mind he just really likes food. Starting with his next feeding I will start giving him pumpkin. Thanks

    This speaks Volumes Jennye..... This is a tell Tale sign he feels better, and shows his potential to be much better. A Happy pet will always show you how happy they are, body motions, running and playing, barking or being their usual selves, Just like an infant, they can't speak, but communicate through actions and body movements, and sometimes verbal barks, growls, and even whines. Food energizing his body is a great thing!!, He's getting nutritional values from it, something his body has been starving for. Something he's able to hold in, and onto to get something out of. Although it's a start, theres still a ways to go, But you've got so much great advise here in this thread, and the queens of nutrition working on this with you, I'm so happy your seeing the improvement, and the 100% pumpkin is guaranteed to help, so i'm standing with you looking for the next stepping stone to progress, in getting your baby recovered, along with everyone else... Awesome !!

    Jagger is still doing well!!!! He has only gone to bathroom once today. Which is completely opposite of before the bland diet. At lunch I gave him a little snack of rice, pumpkin and cottage cheese. He seemed very satisfied. Because he was malnourished I had been feeding him 3 times a day. So, instead of another chicken and rice serving I decided to give him more of a snack. He is liking the new menu and is full of energy and attitude. This is what he does when I tell him to get out of the grass and I end up having to carry him in the house. He and my daughter love napping on his dog bed.

    I've been following poor Jagger and wanted to say that I'm glad to see he's doing a better. When I got Sally she wouldn't eat at all. Had to do the bland diet with her too and then I supplemented her with a high calorie supplement for the first 3 weeks. She took a vege Scooby snack that first weekend so I let her have as many as she wanted, I just wanted her to eat something then. You've gone through a lot with him.

    I'm glad he is doing better. Remember...changing from chicken to boiled hamburger won't be hard on him...as long as its the bland diet. I would also cut back on some of the extras..like cottage cheese..applesauce. Remember..with digestive problems...less is more! After he gets back on track..you can reintroduce one thing at a time..and the whole chicken treat thing.. If its jerky..don't give it to him. Even Made in US...doesn't mean the processed chicken didn't come from China. This is what has been happening with the jerkey treats. I would cut out the treats altogether until you see him back on track. I know..I'm mean..but adding is always easier than taking away..

    Right now Jagger is doing well. His is still soft , but this is only the second time in one day Which is a great improvement. And it's a smaller amount of
    So, I will cut out the extras and just give him some rice in the middle of the day.

    He is obviously feeling better. His belly is less bloated. I am hoping this keeps working.... I may switch to the hamburger and see if it improves more. I have a feeling that it may be grains and possibly the chicken.

    The snacks are not jerky.... I only use the snacks to hide his medicine in. If I don't he will just spit the pills out and give me dirty looks
