    Oh my goodness! I've just caught up on this thread, Chip. What an ordeal this has been for you and Powers! I'm so proud of you for following your heart and not giving up on him. I also think the appetite problem was probably the pneumonia and possibly the meds, but also being away from home and you. I am so happy that he's eating now--that's wonderful news, and I think now he will get stronger and stronger.

    Can I ask where you live in Dallas? I live in Richardson. I was wondering what emergency vet you were using? I should have read about the bone disease before I posted this because I'm not familiar with it. I do know that there is a building full of all kinds of veterinary specialists on Trinity Mills on the west side of the Tollway. I've been referred there by my regular vet several times for different dogs of mine with different issues. We've seen an orthopedist, an oncologist and an opthomologist (did cherry eye surgery on our last bulldog). You might ask your regular vet about them. They are excellent doctors and I think you need a referral to go there. Maybe another opinion from a specialist about the bone issue would be good? @fitchalcyone

    Everyone has given you such great advice here. I just love this wonderful community of caring folks!

    Hi, everyone! Sorry that I've been away for a few days. My mother's birthday was on Saturday so I spent most of the weekend visiting her and the family.

    Jessica, Powers has been doing well. The vet appointment was basically just for him to be seen by his regular vet and the staff (six of them came into his room giving him all forms of smothering, glad that he made it through). She sent me with some probiotics to give with his food for a bit. Also, when his antibiotics are finished, we'll be doing another chest x-ray just to make sure we're clear of any pneumonia symptoms. A bit of an unrelated question, but is Bil Jac really a bad food? Everyone I've talked to has seemed pretty approving of it, though I noticed the food section on the forums here gives it a very low rating. Any insight as to why?

    Donna, I actually live in Richardson, too! Close to Richland. The emergency vet I used was in Mesquite off Belt Line and Northwest Drive. The reviews seemed quite favorable, so I didn't mind the extra drive. As for the disease, so far it's been practically new territory for all involved, but everyone seems to be in agreement based on his x-rays. From the reading I've done, the disease isn't directly fatal, so I'm hoping he'll manage through in these coming months. But I'll definitely keep that Trinity Mills location in mind should something come up again. While the emergency vet was good, I am still open to another location if needed.

    Thanks again, everyone! I'm gonna try to finally post up a "happier" introduction sometime this week.

    Yeay! You didn't forget about us! Glad he is doing so much better! When it comes to food, I couldn't tell you exactly why, but I will say its based off the ingredients used, where the ingredients are sourced from, recalls, etc.

    Can't wait for the "happier" intro and some updated pics of Mr. Powers Please deliver hugs from me & Tyson!! PS. We're in Katy (Houston) heyyy fellow Texan.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Chip, I always refer to Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor when I am considering changing foods. Right now, mine are doing okay on Taste of the Wild, and it is easy for me to find in my small town.
