Yesterday saw us giving Maggie her scrambled egg for breakfast as normal and the first portions of plain yoghurt plus boiled chicken and rice for her dinner.
Rather than overload her tummy, we split the volume up so that she had yoghurt on three occasions and chicken and rice on two throughout the day. The dry food which was in her bowl was thrown away and not replenished until we could see what was going on.
She has been drinking normally, but for most of yesterday she slept. Like us, sleep is probably a good thing, though we did go out in the car and she was quite content.
We went for a walk just after 8pm when it was nice and cool, and the second motion of the day was ‘good’.

This morning, we went for a short walk where everything was again ‘good’, but she didn’t seem to want to walk far so we came home.
She’s eaten her egg, had a couple of spoonfuls of yoghurt, and a small portion of chicken and rice. I’ve put a few of her dried food nuggets down just in case she fancies a nibble, but somehow I think she would rather have the chicken and rice every day!
It’s not going to happen, but she will have it today and tomorrow, and possibly Sunday to give her tummy and bowel a chance to recover.
We think the yoghurt is also helping Hubby’s reflux, so if it means a large tub of it gets added to the shopping trolley once a week for the two loves of my life, it’s a small price to pay for their good health!
