    Did a quick google search and here's what I found:

    Dr Zwamborne in Langley

    Dr. Douglas or Dr. Barkasy - Newton Animal Hospital in Surrey

    Dr. Berkshire - Granville Island Veterinary Hospital (This one received really good reviews from pug, boston terriers and eb owners)


    From experience, I've learned to ask and research as much as you can on this site prior to going to the vets. And then when you do see the vet, let them propose the solution to your questions or Cappu's issues. Most likely you would've came across the same suggestion here or something that conflicts with it, that's when you share your input and concerns. You'll pretty much get a feeling if they're knowledgeable enough about bullies once this conversation gets going. Remember to trust your instinct, sometimes I think vets get taught how to milk customers for their money in their schools, similar to mechanics. lol. Just don't be ever afraid to ask questions.

    I've read back through this thread a couple of times now and the first thing that sticks out in my head is all the changes in so short a time. I understand that you are worried about Cappu and you need to do what's best for him but you have to slow down a little bit. Nothing that you are doing, or will do in the future will have immediate results. So relax a little ok?

    If he is doing great on chicken and rice then keep him on chicken and rice. There is no law that says you have to feed him kibble. I'll admit it's MUCH easier to just measure out a cup and dump it in a bowl but cooking for him yourself doesn't take much time either.

    at 10 pounds his diet should be 28% protein, 17% fat. Chicken is low fat so you will need to add either chicken fat or unsalted butter to his rice. Try this recipe:

    1/4 pound (1/2 cup) regular fat ground beef, chicken, turkey or pork
    2 3/4 cups cooked brown rice
    2 large eggs
    1/4 cup cooked, diced carrots
    2 Tablespoons Safflower Oil or any 3-6-9 oil blend
    2 Tablespoons fresh diced parsley
    1/2 clove minced Garlic
    You can either serve this raw or bake in the over for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. If you're going to serve it raw you can mix all of the other ingredients and add the raw meat right before you feed him. You don't want to mix it all together and serve the raw meat when it's old and exposed to air for too long.

    This is enough to feed a 10 pound dog twice a day for 4 days and will meet all of his nutritional needs. Since he is only 4 months old, I would feed him 3 times a day. His system has been through hell lately, what you never want to do it let his digestive juices have nothing to do. 3 small meals a day plus a snack at bedtime should stop the throwing up. I normally give yogurt or cottage cheese as a bedtime snack but you aren't sure if he is allergic to dairy. Maybe a couple vanilla wafers will make him happy.

    If you plan to homecook for him you will have to add a multivitamin. You can buy Centrum for kids or individual supplements. Make sure whatever vitamins you give him include beta carotene. The body converts beta carotene into usable vitamin A so do not add other A supplements. To boost his immune system, and I really think you should, add a coQ10 supplement. You can safely give him 2mg per pound twice a day. Just drop the pill into his food, he will eat it and not even realize it (much better than shoving it down his throat) He should also get vitamin C but in food rather than a pill. Does he eat oranges? You can give him a couple of orange slices as a treat.

    I hope this helps. I'm with everyone else on the new vet idea. Even if for no other reason than a second opinion. Do you have a holistic vet near you? They're a little more expensive than regular vets but worth it if you can find one.

    I'm late on this thread and I don't have advice that hasn't already been given. I agree with everyone. Bland diet, BE PATIENT, and definitely switch vets! I would also get on the web and review that vet on google or yelp. Share your bad experience so others can avoid him too. I hope your baby feels better! Try to eliminate any stress for him too, that aggravates the belly.

    based on the info Abby's nutritionists gave me, white is more processed than brown which means it has lost some of its fiber, vitamin and mineral content. Brown rice, as a whole grain, is easier on the digestive system and doesn't raise blood sugar levels as fast. Use what you have, either are fine for Cappu's needs. Again, I'm not a doctor, but if you are finding rice in his stool, it probably means that he isn't digesting all that you are giving him so cut back on the amount he gets. You could also try overcooking it for a little while too.

    As for the oranges, they are fine as long as he eats them. 2 or 3 slices a day will be good for him. If he doesn't eat the orange you can try other fruit high in vitamin C like strawberries, cantaloupe or watermelon.
