Chester, So You’re Not Being Picky?

My dog started to be picky with his food about 2 weeks back. He’ll leave 1 or 2 kibbles behind and when I tell him to eat the remaining pieces, he’ll eat it but only to spit out again. Then he started to leave more kibbles behind. This actually is something I’ve dealt with before. It’s like him saying I’ve had enough of this kibbles, buy me a new one (new taste).

Chester’s Bloody Diarrhea

Chester and I just came back from our separate vacation few days ago. My dog spent nearly a week at a home boarding while I went on a short trip.

This went on until 3am in the morning. A total of 7-8 times diarrhea!
