After a year and a half of grieving my 6.5 yr old APBT who passed of Lymphoma, I recently rescued a 4 month old APBT from a shelter near Stockton, CA. He seems real healthy and has a great personality/temperament so far, and I am a pretty critical dog owner
My question is: The shelter was feeding Iams Proactive Health Puppy which I know is crap. They told me to gingerly feed him part Iams and part my food I normally feed my dogs (Canidae). Well I am out of the Iams now and don't really want to buy more, rather just feed him Canidae....is he gonna trip out and have Parvo-like symptoms? The vet said if you upgrade the food it should be OK, but I wanted feedback from yall.
Also, I am crazy paranoid about Parvo and the vet in Stockton said Parvo was crazy bad this year. I live in Sacramento, but have an apartment so I have to take him out around the neighborhood to go to the bathroom. The vet recommended using anti-bacterial wipes on his paws if he goes through grass areas where other dogs go...
Hes had 2 sets of shots at the shelter and was dewormed, but the lil stinker has demo so they wouldnt give him the 3rd vaccine on Monday. They gave me this oral solution for the demo and I'm going back next week for more shots.
