14 year bichon/poodle has been sick for a week with diarrhea and vomiting, he has stopped vomiting for almos 2 daysnow. Has a scheduled ultrasound on Monday what would you recommend to feed him? I’v tried chicken and rice with veggies doesn’t want to eat it much which normal he would eat right away. He will eat if I sprinkle cheese on it. But mainly just eats all the cheese. Any recommendations to keep him comfortable till Monday?
