Well, the bee sting took just a few hours to get over. However, the vet instructed us to keep Alfie on a home-cooked diet of brown rice and chicken for a few days, then slowly switch back to kibble.
Alfie's discovered a new raison d'etre: DINNER! He's gone from being a good eater to being downright greedy. No wonder...his food smells really good. One morning the kids came out to the smell of it simmering on the stove and were all like, "Oh, Mom, you're cooking us breakfast!" Nope, I sheepishly had to admit...it was for the dog...
All I can say is: Wish us luck switching back!
