Silas did not throw up today!
And why is that marvelous?
Because he had an ounce of pork in his dinner last night.
I’m not wild about feeding him pork for lots of reasons, so it will probably turn out to be something he can eat. Logic was on pork’s side, though, and I’m getting desperate. The Orijen Regional Red kibble that we were using as Silas developed his food allergies had both wild boar and pork. When we switched to raw, we were using a pre-made food that didn’t come in a pork variety.
About a month ago, it hit me that he kept having symptoms until we pulled him off of everything except turkey, about a month after we switched to raw. While the pork could certainly have been a problem, it was, logically speaking, not the problem, or he would have gotten better that month. That skyrocketed pork right to the top of my list of foods to try.
Today doesn’t really prove anything, except that he is not instantly and catastrophically allergic. He had to get all the way to whole meals of duck before it starting making him obviously sick. (The duck thing was weird in a lot of ways, though, so I’m not sure how representative it will be.) We’ll see.
Around here, “cautiously optimistic” about new foods is definitely a marvel.
