Pierre's Tummy Update

   You might remember that earlier this month we had to take Pierre to the vet with tummy troubles. They gave us two types of medicine and recommended we buy Prilosec or Pepcid when the meds ran out. As I mentioned in the previous blog, Pierre has always had a sensitive stomach. If he goes too long without eating, it makes all sorts of weird noises. This has been going on his entire life and I explained that to our vet. We have had him checked and there is nothing wrong with him. He is healthy as a horse other than his tummy issues.
In addition to our vet visit, I wrote a letter to Dr. Harvey’s explaining our problem. The next morning, I received a phone call from Dr. Harvey and we talked at length about Pierre’s stomach issues. How many times have you wished you could talk to the person who formulated your pet’s food? With Dr. Harvey’s it is totally possible and not just to me as an ambassador but to anyone! We discussed how his diet among other things could help. I have been feeding both boys Paradigm for over a year and they love it. He suggested we switch back to Canine Health and see if it helps.
   The boys have been on Canine Health and like all of Dr. Harvey’s pre-mix, they love it. Why did he suggest the change? This pre-mix is known as the Miracle Food because it can provide allergy relief, better digestion, weight management and has been shown to improve appetite. These are all things that could help Pierre’s situation. When his stomach is messed up, he won’t eat, and eating is what makes it stop hurting and grumbling. It was a great place to start so they rushed a bag along with some of their awesome Runs Be Done. We started him on it right away. A HUGE thank you to Dr. Harvey and his amazing team
   Until our food arrived, we tried to think of anything else that could be upsetting his tummy. The only thing I could come up with was seafood. They usually get ground chuck lightly browned or boiled chicken in their food along with an oil but sometimes I give them tuna or sardines. They love them but looking back, we realized that he seemed to get sick after eating the fish. All seafood has been axed from their diet completely. #LightbulbMoment
   It’s been a week and he has not been sick one single time! He gobbles up his Canine Health with beef or chicken and licks Bentley’s bowl for good measure. His stomach still grumbles when he wakes up hungry, but he eats without hesitation. NO vomiting and no whining in pain. I will continue to watch him closely and keep you updated.
   While we are discussing Pierre, let me tell you a couple of more things about our boy.
• He is the happiest little guy that I have ever known. I cannot imagine my life without him.
• He is my snuggler and sleeps next to me every night. It is amazing how such a small dog can take up so much room, but he does.
• Pierre can give kisses faster than any dog ever!
• Grooming is his least favorite thing in the world.
• He loves to play with his stuffed animals and never fails to greet us with something when we come home.
