I have a new chi (rescue) and we have been having a bit of a problem w/ food. To start off we have had her for 3 wks, she was so thin and all we knew was that she was found on the streets in the city. The 1st wk we had her she was fixed (our reascue already had her a wk), then next week she went to the vet b/c she had worms. Actually I told them when they took her to get fixed but I don't know if they did a fecal. they gave her med for the worms I don't know which meds they gave her so I don't know if it was for the other worms ie pyrantel and it doesn't work on tapeworms. Either way we took her to our vet and they gave her the shot for the worms. In a wk she was all better. At that apt she was 4.0 lbs by the next apt a little over a wk later she was 4.8 lbs. Eating and no worms does wonders. SHe is about the height of our other chi and she is @ 8lbs. So the new one has a way to go. It has taken me 3 weeks to get her to eat from a bowl and she is doing better at eating in the kitchen, she doesn't like the floor, possible too slippery(?) Anyway I had to start w/ things like cheese just to get her to eat, then we went to boiled chicken and rice, now she is finally eating dog food. I still have to put ina tiny bit of something like chicken to get her started. She will only eat pedigree little champions and it has to be warmed and chopped. But she won't eat any that is ground up. So fun for me I have to warm it and cut it up smaller. I really don't mind but I want to see if there is a better quality wet food or if this is ok. She is starting to eat dry and that is good, but what about the wet food? any ideas. The other problem is that she is so small that some of the cans just have too much food and even w/ a cap it takes so long to finish that I don't want it to go bad. I was trying the tiny can (can't remeber what it was) but it got gross (jelly) b4 she ate it all and we tossed it. Any suggestions would be great. Right now I'm just happy she is eating but I would like to eventually change if there is something better. Thanks.
