Maximo: 41 lbs 1-11-2011
WEll Max is doing a lot better with the digestive situation- we have had him for about 8 weeks now- he was at least 6 weeks old we we adopted him- so I would estimate his age to be just over 3 months.
Here is the updates: since we had him he has had diarrhea for 1 month everyday, I have had him in the vet 4 times each time with a sample to test for worms and parasites etc..
He has been on flagyl, (twice)and other broadspectrum meds.
Well most sites will tell you that to make sure check the food situation: protein(source meat)24-28%-, no meal by products etc..
well the top rated food that was suggested and sold by our vet has the first ingredient: whole grain Meal, chicken by-product as the second.
An unknown brand: not as expensive: has chicken meat as first ingredient and the other flavor has lamb meat as the first ingredient, whole brown rice, and list of vegies-- well I have had him on this brand now for this week and low and behold - normal movements. He is not as nippy, he is learning and paying attention.
He was probably in so much discomfort and little nutrition no wonder he was not listening and seemed to be agitated.
Food is a major item for these little guys.
