Ditto. You said he was vomiting his eggs so Tori's right on, he has nothing in his system. If he ate normally yesterday and has not vomited since Sunday then I would expect to see a BM at some point today probably.

Hmm, when the socks came back up were they complete? I.e. no missing parts or pieces? Could he possibly have eaten something else? I am just concerned when you say he's trying to go but nothing is coming out. Neutral

It would also be good to check if he reacts to pressure around his abdominal area. basically any sign of discomfort or unusual hard areas.

yeah, it was the entire sock each time. I don't think they were missing any parts. Sure didn't seem that way. I'm scared that he ate something else too Crying or Very sad I hope not! Keeping my fingers crossed that he'll poop by tomorrow

That would indicate no obstruction at least. I would give the eggs and carrots a chance and blame the mushy poop on the socks upsetting his system.

Blame him and your husband for leaving around socks. Razz

Give it another day and see how he does. If he doesn't get better, I would look into switching him to some boiled hamburger meat or another source of protein if the eggs aren't binding him and look into adding eggs another time. You said the eggs were never 100% with him if I remember correctly. He was certainly more formed, but definitely not solid/perfect.

Yep, totally blame them! But I feel guilty too because if i wouldn't have been sleeping I would have seen the shoes on the ground and proceeded to b**ch my hubby out and put them away =(

Right, the eggs were never 100% with him. Definitely better, but not 100%. He pooped again when I got home and it was still very mushy. He did poop more than this morning which is good, but it was not well formed at all. Sounds nasty, but when it was coming out it seemed to be fell formed, but once it hit the ground it wasn't.

AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I'm going to keep him on the eggs/carrots through tomorrow and if I'm not seeing any change then I'll try some of the hamburger meat like you suggested. What type of hamburger meat should I get? The leanest, right? Would I incorporate it slowly with the eggs or switch cold turkey? I feel that I keep on asking that question..lol

Thanks Tori!

Honestly, if you try ground beef I would feed it raw and probably the one with the most fat. Dogs need fat, especially Kody since he's already pretty skinny, so I wouldn't ever use lean for a dog.

Some sibes have a tendency not to do well on cooked or processed beef too which is yet another reason to try raw not to mention he'll get a lot more benefit from raw meat and it's easier on their tummy since they are built for raw meat. Wink If you'd feel better feeding boiled ground beef then you can give it a shot and see how it goes. If it doesn't go over well boiled then I'd definitely try it raw.

I would take Val's advice on this one and go with fat. Definitely the best human grade and check the ingredients to make sure there are no preservatives (although I think ground beef is a bit safer than chicken in that regard, it's always best to check).

For the record, I would normally try chicken first since it tends to have better results, but I believe you tried Kody on chicken as well without the best results, so I suggest switching it up. Beef does tend to carry some more sensitivities than other proteins and for that, like Val said, there's nothing wrong with raw beef. So it's your call-- I think the moral of the story is that neither will hurt him, just know that if he doesn't do well with raw/boiled beef, try the other before giving up.

Thanks girls! I think I'll start the beef on Friday if he's not doing better with the eggs. If he is doing better on the eggs then I'll go for sweet potato. Should I switch him from the eggs to the beef gradually or switch him cold turkey? I know that he if was doing great on the eggs then I would need to introduce the beef little by little so that it won't mess up his progress, but if he's not doing 100% well on the eggs should I switch it at once?

If his stools are still very "mushy" by Friday then I would switch cold turkey and hope for the best. If you are seeing more formation then I might suggest half and half for a day or two just to ease into it a bit. Before making any plans I'd wait and see how he is tomorrow and Friday and decide then.

So this evening his poop was confusing..lol! He had mushy come out first, followed by a bit more formed, and then more mushy again. He did poop more today then he did yesterday so that's good I think. I'm going to wait till tomorrow night and make a decision on what to do.

He's SO SKINNY dude...he's getting me worried. He looks like we don't feed him or he's sick or something Sad

If you decide to wait until tomorrow that's perfectly fine, it's entirely up to you.

However, based on what you saw this morning, if it were ME, I would just switch cold turkey and feed 1/2 - 3/4 lb of raw ground beef tonight (with his carrots) and cross your fingers. lol Again, that's what I personally would do and I'm not suggesting that waiting an extra day would be better or worse for him. I just doubt that the extra day is going to make a huge difference based on his history.

Oops, sorry girls! I could have sworn I replied to this!!! My bad! Yep, he's doing better on the ground beef!!! He's been on it for a few days now. I'm now giving him half raw and half cooked with this carrots. He poop is dark, but i'm guessing it's because of all the meat. I had been giving him Sirloin, but they didn't have any when I went to the grocery store the other day and it was late so I just got him what they had (ground chuck) and that made his poop a bit softer so I got rid of it and got him the siroloin again today. Keep in the mind that his poop is still not perfectly hard, but it's formed and I can pick it up with no problem. It does squish when I pick it up...gross I know...but it's the best way for me to explain.
