    Oh Rosalie, I'm just NOW reading this… I'm so sorry about Brutus, and I know how worried you must be… Hang in there, sounds like they will keep a close eye on him. Hopefully it's just a virus, and not an obstruction

    WTH does the vet mean about him NOW being allergic to beef, pork and chicken?!! Completely different proteins I swear these vets, I was arguing w/mine about the Fromm's. Bottom line is these guys do NOT know food, they just want to sell their Science Diet crap.

    Sending you lots of prayers & hugs girl… and PLEASE keep us posted!!!

    I think the point he was trying to make was why start out with the best food and then if you have a problem you have no where to go. Stupid point i think. with bullys who have so many sensitivities, starting with the best and avoiding the problem to begin with is the better answer. He really didn't get into it though because he was more concerned with his belly right now. I will update tomorrow or as soon as I have more news.

    So the vet just called. We have a couple of issues going on. The first is Brutus has an infection in his tummy. His white count is 18,400. They did an x ray and he did eat something. They see debris in his bowel and intestine. The vet seems to think it is small enough pieces that he could pass it. So no surgery for right now. They are waiting for one more blood test to come back to see if he has pancreatitis. That test should be back around noon. The second thing going on, is He has an ear infection which I knew but he said the cysts on his feet and his ears are related and he thinks it is allergy related. He wants me to change his food to Royal Canine white fish potato. I think this is a decent food right? I have seen several bullys here on it. The vet said it is a hypoallergenic food that is good for dogs with allergies. He thinks this has manifested from when I noticed Brutus was allergic to the Christmas tree. So...Brutus has to stay another night on fluids and to try to get him to eat solid food a little later to make sure he does not vomit and to ensure the debris in his tummy is passing. I feel so bad for my baby boy. I just want him home with me. Of course my husband is having a break down because it is costing a fortune but what are you going to do, things happen right? I just want him cared for and to be better. I will let you guys know how the last blood test comes out later. Thanks for all the kind words and prayers. You guys make dealing with a crappy situation so much better.

    Positive thoughts going out for you and Brutus!!

    Wondering what about Royal Canine Potato and Whitefish makes it a hypoallergenic food? Is it because there's no animal protein, just fish? If you didn't ask the vet, try to Rosalie. I checked and the first ingredient in it is dehydrated potato. It does seem to be a "limited" ingredient formula though..
