A month ago Arkane got Giardia, since then he has fought it off.. yay!
But, he didn't gain any weight (and lost some during his first round of antibiotics) for a few weeks.. He has since doubled his weight.
I can't help but feel that he was deprived of essential nutrients during that period.. So I guess now I'm trying to 'make it up' and restore his immune system, I guess..
I've been starting off slow, but I have seen a lot of improvement! I just need to know your thoughts on some things.
Arkane has been on the FortiFlora supplements, it says to give a whole packet each day but I've only been giving half.
He also gets Kelp and Fish oil. He is 30+ lb at the moment but I've only been giving him the dosage for cats. He should be getting 1/2 a teaspoon but is getting 1/8th.
Every other day he gets a teaspoon of Natures Variety Instinct 'Raw Boost'. It says to give a teaspoon per 10 lb but he only gets 1.
So, what do you think ? Should I give full dosages ? Does every little bit count ? Can a body become dependent on supplements ? How do you give your own supplements ?
BTW Arkane is on a raw diet of mostly lamb, turkey and beef.
