    UPDATE

    I decided to add veggies to her meals to give her something besides chicken, potatoes, and superfood complex in her meals. I saw Vegas' Stew recipe and Twice's veggie mash for Abby on here so I decided to make Aubrey a stew with things I knew she would eat.

    Aubrey's Stew

    2 medium cans of diced tomatoes
    1 can of spinach
    1 small can sliced mushrooms
    1 chopped red bell pepper
    1 chopped green bell pepper
    1/2 bag sliced frozen carrots
    1/2 bag chopped broccoli

    I also added a bit of potato that I already made when mixing for her to eat.. I wanted to keep it separate in case it didn't go over well. All ingredients are either fresh, or low/no sodium. I also add boiled chicken when I heat for her to eat.

    She loves it! She wanted more last night, but I didn't give her more in case it upset her tummy. I gave her a big portion today, so we will see how she does. I gave her a small snack of chicken/cheese/a few pieces of Fromm this afternoon because she was acting hungry. I will see how it goes with the dog food. At this point, I really do not think it is the dog food that is the problem. I think she has allergies, but not to Surf and Turf because she does so well on it most days. I really think she may be ingesting outdoor allergens and it makes her feel sick to her stomach, so she vomits. I gave her a Benedryl this afernoon because she has been in and out a lot since it's a pretty day. Her little paws and face are pink, so I hope it helps.

    Anyway.. we will see what happens tonight and then tomorrow at the vet.

    ..... When she goes outside does she try to eat the grass????? Cooper does that and they says it the way they deal with an upset tummy and they are eating to make themselves throw up...... Cooper LOVES his veggies to. I m still mixing to fromm. I think if the fromm works I am still going to give him a veggie snack here and there! I was afraid Coop would get the runs or gas from the veggies, but almost a week now of veggies and still solid and no or should I say no more than normal!! I couldn't remember if I told you to boil on the veggies together and then mash them up.....I am sure you probably red Twice's comment if you read through my stuff and she tells how and what to make! You can also give her some fresh raw veggies here and there to!! O and did she make a mess with the veggies. Cooper always gets it all over the floor!!!

    Sometimes she tries to eat grass, but not all the time. I tried mixing some Fromm with her dinner tonight, but she spit it all out. I went in and the were only a couple veggies left but practically all the dog food I put in there was spit into the bowl, lol. We will see what the vet says tomorrow, then go from there when it comes to her food. I might change her to a different flavor of Fromm if the vet doesn't think it is her food that's the problem; I just am not sure if it is or not because she does fine on in half the time. I am thinking about trying wet food and see if she likes it better. Maybe she is tired of the same old thing, who knows? I did boil all the veggies together. Personally, I think it stinks, but Aubs loves it. As long as she's eating and keeping it down, I am happy.

    I'm getting nervous about the vet tomorrow morning. I want to know what's wrong, but I am so hoping it is something like allergies and not something major. If we can just get her back over 40 pounds, I will be over the moon!

    How old is she again???? Coop is almost 8 months I think he is right around 40 also. Not gaining but now we are getting kibble in him I am hoping he puts on a few pounds. Did the other vet do xrays and blood work.....if so I don't think he have to worry much about anything major.....but I know how you feel. I personally think both Coop and Aubrey have an allergy to something. I was thinking maybe grain for Coop but you have Aubrey on Fromm and isn't a fromm grain free??? You might just have a picky eater too....I know there are a few on here. I have Coop on the beef fritatta and he loves it. He eats all veggies and kibble and I have been giving him a handful of kibble only, here and there and he acts likes it the best thing in the world! lol I am nervous and excited for your vet appt too! I hope you learn something or they can give you suggestions. I might have to get Coop some of those awesome shoe socks...lol....his feet I think are getting better but he then they will look a little more red here and there and I don't know how long the cysts or whatever it is between his toes takes to go away! I am thinking about just getting an allergy test done just so I can know what his allergies are at this moment. But we are going on a litte over a week of no He played outside for awhile today and I notice his face is red! I need to get some Benedryl!

    O and my hubby and daughter are totally grossed out by Coops veggies mush!!! The sweet potatoes in Coops I think makes it smell pretty good but they bout throw up looking at it!

    Ugh... she just threw up. Not sure if its because I fed her too much (I did give her a little more because she seemed still hungry), or if its from her licking my foot earlier. I've been in and out, no telling what I stepped in, AND I cleaned the carpet earlier (we kept her off until dry and wiped her feet when she got on the couch with us). It wasn't long after she licked my foot that she threw up, which is similar to her licking her own feet then throwing up. So many variables... so frustrating!

    Thanks for the thoughts... I will update after our visit tomorrow.

    I Know how that is with over feeding. I have learned to just stick with 4-5 small meals witch seems to help Cooper.....But I find myself wanting to give him a little more cuz he will be sitting in his spot he sits in when he thinks its chow time! I'm bad at sneaking a little to him here and there! Ugh So was it the veggies she threw up..... I hate cleaning barf up especially on the carpet!!! Between Coop and trying to potty train my little boy I wouldn't eat anything that dropped on the carpet! LOL Cooper has peed, , , on my carpet and my son has peed, (coming out of his diaper or underwear!), (all over his bed and carpet 2 days ago) and spilled so much stuff on my carpet. I'm to the point of wanting to rip the carpet out and put tile or hardwood. I'm tired of stepping in wet spots from me cleaning up the messes!

    I'm sorry for having not followed this (I'm fighting a stomach bug myself) but I really, really hope Aubery gets better. Sometimes overfeeding is the reason, sometimes not. I hope the vet can give you an idea of what is causing it. Until then, I'm glad she is keeping the veggies down.

    Please let us know what the vet says. I'm praying for a good result

    Not a quick, good visit.

    They kept her for the night because they wanted to run a lot of tests. Blood testing, x-ray, ultrasound, etc. Apparently, she seems to be experiencing chronic blood loss and they don't know why. Everything else checks out fine, but that is a red flag. They are going to go in to look inside her stomach in the morning. The thing is, the tests themselves are costing so much money. If they need to do surgery like they are mentioning is possible? I don't know how we will afford it. I will do whatever I can to make it happen, but I am so worried that if it costs a lot we won't be able to do it. The tests today were only $400, but I know scope tomorrow will cost a lot. Then surgery? I don't want to think about it. We only have $2000 in care credit, then I have $500 available on a credit card. After that, I don't know what to do.

    I want my baby healthy. I want to do whatever I have to do to make her better. It's just been a horrible day and I am so worried it is going to be something bad. It could be something like ulcers because I know they can cause blood loss, weight loss, and vomiting. I haven't seen any tarry stools or emesis though. It could be various things.

    Please let my baby get better!
