I'm sorry, but I have no interest in feeding Science Diet. I wish vets would suggest feeding something else they carry...like California Natural or Natural Balance...those are options at the clinic I go to! Frustrating.
Well, I did buy some limited ingredient food from Blue Buffalo my last LaCrosse trip, and some other grain-free varieties. I will look into seeing what else I can find. I will start coconut oil therapy with Figgy-melt some and let him lick it. From doing research early-on for trying to come up with informative pet-related articles for the Co-Op...coconut oil is supposed to help with ibd/ food intolerance issues. I will continue with the Fortiflora...
Figgy is also at 7lbs, and getting close to being a butterball (at least, that is my worry)...but he should weigh no more than 7lbs.
I just find it ironic...that food issues yet again, rear their ugly head in my house. And the fact that I stopped feeding fancy feast, and mainly fed more novel proteins...it's still an issue. I'm going to turn into one of those fanatical co-op moms who have their kids tested for allergies regularly and ultimately eat nothing but spouts and water. (I'm exaggerating...but it really seems that's very popular.)
I've never been tested, and maybe I should be...however if any allergy test came back for me being allergic to cats I'd tell them to give me drugs and leave me alone. (ha.) I know dairy is a food I have a love/hate relationship with...and I have found some gluten-free items giving me stomach issues more than not.
I'm wondering if I should get Figgy tested.
Anyways...today will be a beautiful day, and I work about all of it. Hooray.
I'm at about 315 for the Hair Challenge...so if I don't make another 300 bucks, this girl is getting a buzz cut.
