It may not cure him, but he’ll enjoy the treatment.

LB can’t be fooled or forced into swallowing pills. It’s like his superpower or something. So I have to crush them and serve the powder with canned dog food. He’ll snarf that down without question or pause.

So he’s gonna love this.

While I was out that way anyway, figured I may as well fill the chickens up on their pellets. So everybody but Uncle Joel is feeling well-fed at the moment.

In fact I think I’ll cook up some lunch.

D&L said their dog Butch went through the same thing a few months ago and could actually see crystals in his urine. Put him on filtered water, problem went away.

But as one commenter said, we really are guessing. At the moment he isn’t even showing any symptoms. I let him out when I got home for a nice long comfortable-looking pee that didn’t have a trace of blood in it.

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    In two weeks, will he go back to his normal, old, everyday, boring kibble without too much drama?

  2. Joel says:

    Without a lot of drama, yeah. He’ll let it be known he noticed the falloff in service.

    Here’s hoping that you caught LB’s trouble in good time, and with good care (and snackies), he’ll soon be just dandy again.

    You might want to serve him a couple of cans of cat food just before you put him back on the dry stuff. I suspect he won’t complain anywhere near so much then…

To the stake with the heretic!
