Tucker got his first thorough brushing since going missing in November. I didn't want to stress him while he was so thin, and then obviously not when he felt sick with FLUTD. He was NOT happy about the brushing, but given that he's sitting on my lap as I type this now, I think all is forgiven.
He's gained a little more weight, now at 13 lb 2 oz. He's nearly at his "pre-escape" weight.
I've had some questions about his diet. Right now, I am mixing half canned and half raw together. I feed grain-free canned, like Evo and Blue. Because fish can be an allergen, I'm avoiding fish flavors. The raw I use is Nature's Variety Instinct. For now, I am using chicken. (I tried duck and he vomited it horribly all over the house. . .) So far, things are going well and he has not resisted the change. His energy levels have improved and (bonus) his stools are more firm and less stinky. I hope this is a good solution for him.
