this is a great example of why picking up after your dog is so very important.
even though i have a fenced in backyard, i pick up after my dog each time she does her business.
this way i can keep an eye on her digestion and will know if something is wrong.
hope his tummy settles down.

We try to be very careful with twist ties, since he's tried to eat them before, but one of us must have dropped the darned thing without noticing.

Rice, boiled chicken, clay, probiotics, and a little canned venison-sweet potato and a herring-based kibble, both of which the pet store dog nutrition guy said are bland and easily digested. He thought that Ben may have become sensitive to the proteins in Cannidae after eating it for years. We had no idea about the twist tie when we talked.
