    I am so glad that she is coming home with you!! Poor girl looks precious. She is so adorable!

    I know they have those slow feed bowls are supposed to work wonders. The ones that kind of divide the food up so they have to take their time and work around it to eat.

    I'm going to try the small ball for Orion. The only thing about the slow feeder is it's plastic. I would rather use stainless steel..and instead of a wine box...an elevated feeder.

    So happy our prayers where answer and she is on her way to recovery!! @acarabias I feed Mocha Natural Balance LID no grains, this food has work wonders on Mocha and She has never had a problem with it.
    If you are thinking of feeding kibble , and are worry about it being dry ,you can always add can food to it. I do this at dinner time to Mochas food. I add 1 or 2 tablespoons of it to her kibble and mix it in(she also gets Grizzly Salmon Oil and 1\2 tablet of her Glyco Flex III at dinner time in her food). You can also add an egg(raw if you wish). I see that you have Fromm at home and many members here love it and it is great on Bullys. Introduce it slowly and she wont have tummy problems. Her poo will change so dont panic that is normal. Think about what is best for you and her and what you feel most comfortable doing.

    It helps sooo much. It moves around the bowl and he pushes..pushes with his nose. See..I didn't even realize there wre different sizes!

    Thank you @LisaMarie She still has a long road ahead of her trying to figure out why she developed pulmonary edema, but I just have to take it one day at a time.

    personally, I would stay with the ground raw, small meals to start with again. You're a good mum. relax a little and love her a lot. lots of huggies and kisses. she'll love all the attention, you know that. keep the little one calm. and yourself. she looks scared in the hospital pictures. hope you can get a few days off work for the recoupe time. I have nothing to add from experience. still sending those prayers
    Life is like a box of chocolate covered

    dogs can aspirate on anything its nothing you did,any raw is better than kibble in my opinion so grind the raw up,feed egg shell instead of bones,ive never tried a slow feeder but it may be worth a try ,karen
