Meet Colter, he’s a lively 10-year-old long-hair Chihuahua. Colter is part of a single income family and has a mom who adores him. She says: “He’s my baby boy. He’s my emotional support dog and I love him so much.”
When Colter suddenly got sick his mom was worried. She kept an eye on him, but after four days of throwing up, diarrhea, and no improvement, she knew that Colter needed to go to the vet.
Colter was given medicine to settle his stomach, but with no obvious cause of the issues he may have gotten into something that upset his sensitive belly. Unfortunately, Colter’s unexpected vet visit was not something his family could afford. They applied to Fur Kids Foundation for assistance and we were happy to help.
Colter is back to his regular self and hopefully has a new appreciation for sticking to pup-friendly foods. If you’ve got a pup with a sensitive stomach, make sure to discuss dietary needs with your vet and to always transition to new foods gradually. Check out some tips on how to properly transition your dog’s food by Hills.
