It's been since last February since Zack has had a bout with his belly issues and it seems very coincidental or unfortunate that since starting back at Rally practice and giving him ground chicken as a reward for his training (which his belly coped with before) it seems to have set him off on a bad spell again. It is such a shame and a bit frustrating as I think we both were enjoying getting back to it and I thought Zack was doing so well. I even had the next trial planned down the road.
I can't think of any other reward that would "entice" Zack enough to keep his interest in training as he is challenging in that respect. I can try his special canned food I guess but I am concerned even too much of that is not a good thing for him. He still is "not himself" today but I think he is on the road to recovery. Early mornings are the worst and we are giving him supportive medicine to help him through and he is eating a little better now albeit not as much as before.
I feel a bit guilty if it was me giving him that chicken that brought it on but he had been so good for so long I thought it was all behind us. How stupid was I. Anyways, I guess we have to move forward and get him back to his old self and just have Zack enjoy his life, his walks, and his four legged buddies.
