Allergies

blood sample boy

After a long time with tummy problems we contacted the vet, he told us that Monti might have allergies. After trying all kinds of dog food for sensitive digestion and nothing worked the vet gave us hills ZD diet, that’s a dog food that does not have any proteins he could react to. This diet has been going on for three months now, no treats our bones, nothing else but hills ZD and his tummy is 100% better. You can not imagine how happy we are! 15th of january we can start out the testing by giving him treats and se what Monti is allergic to. This will be tested one meal at the time, If he gets ill then we will know to avoid the food.

I have felt so sorry for him, I really wanted him to have something good to eat on christmas eve but the diet is so important the vet said so he got his regular meal. The one thing that is positive about the diet is, Monti loves the food and stand by his bowl and makes noise when he wants more. We have tried so many brands in the past but this one will stick with us.

a few weeks ago he also got his second vaccine and got micro chipped, he did not like it had to be done.

This is my dog Monti, he is a year and four months old and we (me and my boyfriend) got him when he was almost eight weeks old. He is a labrador mix and have the boldest personality, he loves food, the lady´s and he points out almost everything that moves (that’s the Gordon setter kicking in). All my life I have wanted and begged for a dog, I have never cared what kind, just a dog I can be with and include in my life. Although Monti is not a pocket-sized dog he goes almost everywhere with us. He demands a great deal of attention and he loves to play, he is very hyperactive at times but it brings much joy and laughter.

My plan with this blog is to share how life is like with my best buddy and also post about training and how it is like being a first time dog owner. This has been the best year and I cant believe he is almost grown up!
