November Chewy Review

Shiver had a follow up appointment this past Saturday.  We saw a different vet this time.  He's seen Shiver several times for various other things, so I wasn't too concerned that it wasn't the same one we saw two weeks ago.  After reading the other vet's notes and talking with me, he said he was pretty sure that Shiver suffered from idiopathic vestibular disease.  After reading this article, I'm certain he's right.  Shiver has recovered phenomenally, with only one small side effect.  He'll finish up the three medications he's currently on, then I'll watch him closely.  He may be able to go off them completely or he may need to be on them permanently, only time will tell.
We received a 5 pound bag of Victor Hi-Pro Plus Formula Dry Dog Food from Chewy.  It came at just the right time!
Shiver and Chico are both currently taking prednisone, which is supposed to increase their appetites and thirst.  Neither one had been eating very much at all for several days in a row and that was very worrisome.  I think that since this was new and different, it piqued their interest and got them back to eating again.  They both seem to really enjoy it.  I like that each piece is small and fits in their little chihuahua mouths perfectly.  Some of the reviews on the Chewy website say they wish they food was a little larger, but it's just right for my boys.

One of the key benefits that I really liked is that 88% of the protein comes from meat, poultry, and fish.  It also supports healthy immune and digestive systems.  Both boys have compromised immune systems, so it's important to me to feed them something healthy.  Best of all, it's made in the USofA.  They've only been eating it about a week so there hasn't really been time to notice a difference in their coats, so it'll be interesting to watch for any improvements.

My boys give this eight paws up!
 We were not compensated financially for this post, but were provided a free bag of treats in return for our honest opinions.

That is really good fortune you got that food so tailored to their needs at the right time.
Hope it does both of them a lot of good.
So happy to hear Shiver is recovering well.
