I hate to say it, but I never had a dog (or cat, before Jamie) that really liked dry food (which is why I find Jamie's preference for it strange). Brody might prefer the canned food.
Yes! I am sticking with this new vet. I have been uncomfortable with the previous vet for some time... so much so that when I had Dori's teeth cleaning scheduled with him, I cancelled it an hour before I was due to take her. I had even stopped feeding her in preparation for the procedure the night before. I just didn't feel comfortable enough to have him do it... This new vet was so great with Brody. You are right, there were NO assumptions with her
I will not be taking them back to the other one.
I will be speaking with the new vet about Dori in the future. I didn't speak to her about cats because of everything going on with Brody.
As far as wet food, you make a very good point... He still has 2 days of the Hills left. I think I need to begin checking into switching him to wet. I will still free feed the dry, like I do with Dori, I just feel more comfortable having food there if they get hungry. I need to find out how much wet food he should have on a daily basis.
I know that he likes Merrick canned foods, and they come in Brody sized cans
I give him the Wingaling flavor as an occasional treat. I take the bones out of it though. I wasn't sure if they are really ok for him to eat. I have never seen a canned food with bones left in purposely.
Thanks again to everyone for all the well wishes. They really worked
