    I also plan to move him to another FROMM protein after this ... he's been on pork & peas for about 2 months, but he's gotten tear stains recently & stains in between his toes (brown). Maybe will switch to Lamb & Lentil to see if they clear up.

    How is your boy doing tonight... any more improvement? agree, switch the Fromm P/P seems to not agree with him and sometimes it does take like 6 weeks to see thee true results/impact of the food

    Yes! Thank you! He has not thrown up anymore since the injection at the vet. We're still doing the bland chicken/rice. After a few days of the bland can I just start him on the new FROMMs flavor?

    First the allergies, and yeast. Now his stomach, and staining. I'm thankful he's always been so healthy but seems like after he turned 8 yrs old - things started happening. But still thankful we've been able to get through them, love this boy with everything I have!

    Rosalie, curious since you said your guys have gotten bacterial infections... we've been on the bland (chicken/rice) since Wednesday morning, and Tyson has not pooped much. He went a little bit Wednesday morning, nothing in evening, and nothing this morning. Does that sound normal since he didn't eat Tuesday? (Due to vet saying we with-hold food due to injections)

    It is normal. Regular food does not have as many fillers as kibble so you get less waste.

    Your welcome!
    Just make sure you are feeding three times a day because without the fillers from the kibble he will be hungry.

    Ah! The things you learn, ok. I just texted my hubs to feed him now since he's home for lunch. Tyson is hungry 24/7 - LOL

    @2BullyMama @brutus77 Hey there - when your boys got bacterial infections, how did the vet determine that? Were they given antibiotics? Tyson is still not acting normal, he has his days I guess. I mean, he ate bland for 6 days, did fine. We started his kibble up yesterday, he ate yesterday. Today he didn't eat it all right away. He ended up going back to it & finishing afterwards. But he's also been smacking his lips (only at night) with a little drool. This happened Saturday night, not so much last night. He's been pooping. I know the vet said next step would be barium swallow, but I'm not so sure he's blocked.... I'm wondering if its more of an infection, acid reflux, something with his belly. Saturday his belly was making all kinds of gurgling noises, I tried to give him pepto, but he only got a small bit down. Just worried about him.

    Both of my boys have had Bacterial Infections. Both were given xrays. Brutus was given pepcid and antibiotic and bland diet and he was better. Frankie had both an xray and an ultrasound because some of his blood levels were elevated. On xray it did look like they had a blockage but this is because with a Bacterial Infection gases build up in the tummy and takes on the look of a blockage. When Frankie had the ultrasound it was clear and he was sent home with antibiotics and pepcid as well as a bland diet and he did fine. If Tyson did not have an ultrasound at this point I might request it before the barium swallow. If you are trying to give pepto, always go with the pill form, it will make your life much easier. Also, you can buy plain pepcid over the counter and continue to give him one a day. I would give it in the morning and see how he does. Any more vomiting?

    Have you tried Pepcid... you can give 1 pill that is what I used for Banks and Nitschke when they had upset belly. Also, Nitschke was allergic to rice (found out via blood allergy test) and he would not eat or throw up after eating. We had no idea why and then did the allergy test... once rice was out of the diet, he did not need any of that stuff. Not saying rice is your issue but could be something in the food

    @brutus77 @2BullyMama
    I will pick up the Pepcid today. I had not tried that yet. No, he has not vomited anymore, thank goodness. I will call the vet this morning, and ask about an ultrasound. The X-rays were clear, but there was one little area in his belly that she said she couldn't really tell if it was food, shadow of his ribs, or actually something. Vet said to call back only if he threw up again, which he hasn't. I can just tell that he doesn't feel well, but its in waves. Because sometimes he just fine & normal, and then later he looks kinda down; which is what leads me to think it could be stomach related. We did start him on new kibble yesterday, lamb/lentil - he was on pork/peas. But I dont see him responding that quick if he doesnt like the food? He normally will pretty much inhale his food, then look for more.... so this morning when he didn't finish, I found it very odd. About 20 mins later when we came back to the kitchen, I went to pick up his bowl, but he went and finished it. I wonder if I need to go back to his original food before all these issues came up. I switched him from Natural Balance Salmon/Sweet Potato to FROMMS about a month ago bc he was suffering really bad from allergies/yeast. I just want him to feel better. I will see how he does with some Pepcid this afternoon.

    Just wanna add my 2cents for whatever it's worth.

    When you change food, even put them on a bland diet, it's going to upset their tummies and throw their bowel movements off. There's really mo way to get around it, especially if your bullie has a very sensitive stomach.

    Right now, I just put Wellie back on his kibble. He was on boiled chicken with some rice for over a week and had 2 movements. He's now back on his kibble, and started going more regularly, but the consistency is, as my husband calls it, "chocolate pudding poo". I know it's going to take another week for it to get back to normal.
    So I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you.

    The other thing I want to mention is about obstruction. Blue had one but nothing really showed up on x-rays either. We knew he swallowed a squeaker though so insisted on a ultra-sound and there it was. So just because the x-ray doesn't show anything, doesn't mean there isn't an obstruction.
