When Midge and Gidget were puppies, they ate with a hearty appetite. Then, out of the blue they became picky eaters. I didn't worry too much - thinking it was just a phase they were going through. When Midge began vomiting every morning and going for 5 days at a time without eating, the vet gave her some probiotics
and that seemed to help a little. She would eat well for a week and then suddenly she'd be off her feed. Well, this went on for about a year. Then, one day I read the ingredient list in their favorite treats. The ingredients looked wholesome enough, but there was a little disclaimer at the bottom of the bag that said, "Wash your hands after giving treats". WHAT? Why on earth would I feed something to my precious puppies that could have possible health risks to humans? Are they crazy? I cannot imagine in what world it is ok to feed ANYTHING to a pet that could possibly harm their health. I immediately threw those treats away and looked for something else I could treat them with. Once those treats were out of their systems they began eating their regular food again. I found them a new treat that had been irradiated and my girls became the vibrant healthy dogs they were meant to be. I will now boycott any dog food company that doesn't care whether it's healthy for them as long as they'll eat it.
I caught one of those nasty summer colds this week, so I don't feel like I was very productive. The good news is that I skipped writing the blog for a couple of weeks so I still have some neat stuff to show you.
