We feed our Morgan (13 weeks old) Fromms Puppy Gold (in the pink bag) but took a couple of weeks to make the change. He loves it and is doing very well on it.

    How do they diagnose aspiration?

    The vet will listen for water in his lungs and then take a chest xray. Depending on how serious it is he will either keep him overnight for treatment or will send you home with medication.

    Mabel is always "wet" sounding. We're trying to find the right combination for her of food, treats, and meds. I hope Dexter stays clear!

    however tonight's issues sounds like phlegm?! I can hear it in his throat when he breathes and he is not settling well?! Is this normal? Or should I be worried any remedies? We did go to the lake today and he decided it would be a good idea to stick his face completely under water?! HELP! Freaking out a little bit!!

    how is the bid boy doing?

    Dexter is good! The food switch has gone really well and we have solid poops and no more phlegm for the most part! If he chews a bone for awhile he gets a little phlegmy, he is settling in good! Is a biter for sure trying to curb having difficulties! Any suggestions??

    Firm NO and distract with one of his toys/bones to teach him what he is allowed to chew/bite on.

    So glad to hear the food change is helping...
