I can't believe it. It's unbelievable. I wanted to wait a few days before posting about it, because I didn't think it could possibly be true.

http://foolstown.com/sm/ura1.gifhttp://foolstown.com/sm/ura1.gifWE HAVE REACHED HAPPY POOP LAND. http://foolstown.com/sm/ura1.gifhttp://foolstown.com/sm/ura1.gif
After less than a week on 100% BATM (I've been gradually switching him over from Evo RM). We have happy poops. For more than a day.

I could kiss the bag. I could french kiss the bag!!! http://foolstown.com/sm/hug.gif ok, maybe not.....

More than a year of searching for a food that doesn't make Buster's bum explode. I simply can't believe it.

The only that sucks now is I gotta worry about mercury (salmon meal being the first ingredient in BATM).

So I've norrowed down the problem foods to : chicken, barley and lamb.

I never thought I would get so excited about pooop, but there it is! http://foolstown.com/sm/ura1.gif

Good news for sure. That is how I felt after Hunter got better after we discovered his severe intolerance to lamb, and that was only a couple of days. I can't imagine dealing with it as long as you have. Good for you for working hard to find something good for him:thumbs up

It's so ridiculous to be so excited...but everytime I pick up a poop, I wanna do a little dance...because I don't need a shovel!!

You'd think I won somesorta prize or trophy or something, that's how excited I am!

' I'd like to thank my parents, for being so amazing, and also everyone on pets.ca, for helping me through the rough years...I just can't believe I WON!! It's all so unexpected!! ' *tear* http://foolstown.com/sm/bis.gif

what's more rediculous is how excited WE are FOR YOU. hee hee... seriously though, that's excellent news! I think we can all relate to your excitement - finally finding a food that works... such a good feeling (and for the dogs too!)

We once had a dog with inflammatory bowel disease--the diagnosis had a profound effect on our dinner conversations! "Guess what, dear, Evan had a great poop today," she'd exclaim over her baked potato...or "Pudding poop again today," he'd say sadly into his clam chowder... So I can really relate to poop elation!

Congratulations, me&b!!!!!!! Wooohooooo! http://www.addis-welt.de/smilie/smilie/mix/jumponsofa.gif

Meb it's so good to hear you've had success. I'm preparing to try my 2 on BatM, since they're not faring so well on the new formula for WK. Congrats on solid poos!

I was just thinking about you and Buster when I clicked on the dog food forum and wondering if you tried the montmorillonite clay. I guess you don't need it now. :D

Congratulations !!!

Hi Marie-Eve,

Congratulations on that milestone! Very happy to read that Buster has gone beyond the gaseous and liquid stages :thumbs up

:fingerscr that it will remain that way. Your success makes me think BATM might be an option to consider to address the problems of one dog I know.

better than ok --> they're AWESOME!! beautifull little formed hard poopies. It's unbelievable.

Also, I've noticed he has good energy on BATM, and he stopped chewing his paws.
WOOOOOOO!!

I guess only animal lovers could really get this excited over the texture of poop...but what the heck...it's really exciting when you don't have to pick it up huge syringe:D

I gotta say...Buster's coat is UNBELIEVABLE! It's shinier than it's EVER been, his teeth are beautifull (then again, I'm a tooth-brusher...so that might be why :D )

I'm so glad we tried BATM. This is really working out for us. People keep stopping us on the street to tell me how beautifull and shiny my doggy is :thumbs up Plus he's soft, like REALLY soft..... I'm so thrilled.
