Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers,
If you didn’t get a chance to read my Monday blog, you may not know that I have added pumpkin as a supplement into Beau’s diet. Beau hasn’t been a wet food enthusiast since we got him, and every once in a while he forgets water is his best friend. This always leaves him constipated and more recently has gotten him a UTI.
On Monday I reported that Beau’s poop wasn’t the most solid. We assume this is because of the new Urinary C/D food the vet prescribed to him. This week we are slowly introducing him back to a pH balanced food, but the pumpkin has worked miracles! Beau has pooped every day with a much more solid … poop! The pumpkin has definitely gotten him more hydrated, especially because Weruva’s Patch Up! mix as very wet. We’ve also given him a bit of Nummy Tum Tum’s Organic Pumpkin which he actually doesn’t seem to mind. The benefit to the Nummy Tum Tum is the fact that is more solid, making it easy to mix kibble or cranberries into (without getting soggy.)
I’m happy Beau’s feeling better, especially as we prepare to head out to England for a week. Hopefully he will be perfect by tomorrow, so the sitter doesn’t have to worry too much!
Thanks everyone for your thoughts. I’m still looking for new wet foods to put into his diet… hopefully we’ll find one he doesn’t lose interest in.. or doesn’t just eat a bite of.
