    Default Cooper and his tummy/food issues...

    Coop has been on veggie only diet for the last 4-5 day and he has never looked better. Face is solid white, no throwing up, and is solid. I was waiting on his fromm to be delivered and got it yesterday and mixed some with his veggies and noticed his face was starting to get red (chin and forehead) He woke up nice and white and I gave him some fromm again and within 15 minutes he was getting red again....Should I give fromm more time, should I just do allergy test to figure out his allergies and then try to find a food, If I give fromm a little more time how long should I give it???? He hasn't throw up with the fromm yet and still his solid poo???? Any suggestions????

    When I switched I didnt see a difference for a good 1mnth to 1mnth 1/2! He barely licks his paws and when he does he had just came in from outside so i think its enviromental...With Cooper he needs to get a good balanced diet b/c he is still a puppy and the veggie diet isnt giving him everything he needs. The food issue could be figured out with allergy panel. If he isnt and is good keep up with them Fromm. If hives start then it could be that but I assume it would have happend already! The others will have more Hope all goes well Meg!

    I gave him his veggies and then put maybe like 1/5 of a cup (small handful) and mixed together.....he probably has had a total of a cup or so in 24 hours....

    I would think he needs to eat more than that! Maybe 1 cup in am with veggies and 1 cup in pm with veggies...The normal is about 1 3/4 cups 2x a day on the bag I think right! I feed Brutus 1 1/2 cups in am 1 scrambled egg and 2cups pm with 1tbsp yogurt

    Yeah it says 2 1/3 cup to like 3 1/3 cup per day...... but since he hasn't been on kibble in awhile and has the throwing up thing.....I was just slowly adding some in.....I will add more today. But he is getting plenty to eat between the fromm and the veggies.....

    @ChanelnBrutus i know thats what you thought after I read what I typed! and OMG I just opened the freezer and I dunno if my hubby moved something on top of the fridge but I had a bottle of wine up there in this little double rack thing and as I opened the freezer...the wine and everything just came down on my head! Seriously I don't know how it didn't knock me out or break the bottle of wine....Hurt WAY Bad and I know have an instant headache and the top of my head is numb and hurting!!! I'm so glad no one saw me do that lol.....Scared the crap outs Coop he started barking, knocked my pop over, and jumped on the computer and even popped a couple keys off the keyboard.....
