    Beasley will be 1 on the 26th of this month. He weighs 37.7 lbs as of yesterday, he weighed 41 lbs on the 5th of January...

    I did buy the canned Hills Science, sensitive stomach and skin.

    I have given him yogurt with meals today.

    Thank you all! Beasley was acting more like himself today, I am giving him his meds and he's keeping food down, so I'm super relieved at that.

    I want to get him through this pneumonia, that is my first priority. I have been researching different foods and I think I am going to give Earthborn a try. Question, do you mix canned with dry, just dry, just canned? What combinations do you guys use that works well?

    Thanks again! So thankful to have a community to get great advice from!

    Pneumonia takes time to develop but may present in a matter of hours once set in. I'm guessing that he's developed pneumonia over the past few days because of the episodes of gagging and choking you told us about. Watch him carefully. If he does not start drinking very soon he may need a bag of fluid to help get him over the hump. I would have insisted on it while at the Vet and I'm a little surprised that they did not suggest it.
    They did give him a bag of fluids yesterday at the vet, He is drinking now!

    For transitioning him from the Hills to Earthborn? You could add some dry kibble to his canned food... go slow 1/4 cup at a time over several days, and then gradually add more kibble. You don't want to upset his stomach...

    Hills canned food has a recall for excessive amounts of Vit. D. @BeasleysMom Please check this https://www.hillspet.com/productlist

    So happy he is feeling better! great news...

    So, why are you wanting to not back with Fromm Ö wat was the issue with the food? Eartborn is a great food just curious why the vet wanted you off Fromm other than them making more money off of you

    Nothing bad about Fromm at all, I’ve just been reading the food forums and suggestions and Earthbound seems to be a favorite above Fromm. There is so much conflicting information and I’m not sure what to do, so I decided to move to Eatthbound and try that.

    My cousin, a vet tech, posted this today. She has no clue the issues I’ve been having with Beasley or what I’m feeding him. Another element to add to my confusion. It seems it’s all about money, I just want to feed my boy a good quality food that will be best for his health.

    Earthworm grain free is great choice.. add a can of sardines once a week to cover any taurine needed.

    Ignore that article.. it is big pet food causing false alarms... only certain breeds could possibly have the issue and most if not all grain free foods add the needed taurine
