Barking at the Moon

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.

WE HAVE REACHED HAPPY POOP LAND.
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!!! 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!

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

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*

It's good news though! I'd be wondering if you weren't excited about it.

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!

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.

Congratulations !!!

Hi Marie-Eve,

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

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
