    Riisi, when you give SK what kind do you use? Here in the us we have some in jars or you can buy it (somewhat) fresh in a bag. Would there be a difference? The jarred stuff probably lasts longer.

    @bullmama I would look for one without any additives. The one that I use is made of white cabbage, carrots and sea salt, nothing else.

    Thanks! I ordered the regular nuvet yesterday and its already shipped! I think I'll start one at a time since we're in a weird phase with him right now. I will also pick up the green beans this weekend from costco to start giving to him once he's off the bland diet. I am also going to look into the SK like @RiiSi suggested.

    I'll look, that may be hard to find here. Probably at the organic food store if anywhere!

    Good idea, always best to wait at least a week between adding new things

    @RiiSi - I found some sauerkraut at whole foods, it has only cabbage & salt. How much should I start with? Tyson's been real funny lately after the vomiting spells he had. And he's doing this weird smacking with his mouth only at night, it doesn't last long...and he drools while doing it so I think his tummy is off
    @bullmama I also got him the green beans today! Hope they keep him full.

    Start with a small amount, maybe just a teaspoon at first. It has a very stong taste too, so it could be he doesn't like it, so gradually increase the dose up to 3oz per meal. It sounds like he has heartburn.

    If it is heartburn, will the sauerkraut help? I'm so sad of seeing him not be himself.

    So the benefit to sauerkraut is similar to apple cider vinegar? With the added bonus of fiber?
