Throughout the years our little fur-kid has had various trips to the vet for any number of complaints, with a great deal being gastro and/or spinal related. Some gentle prodding in the abdominal area would evoke in Jasper flinching; the vetís common feedback relating to the possibility of referred pain of some sort, potentially due to the degenerative disks in his back.
Jasper has always had a sensitive stomach and we decided early on that we would feed him low-fat and healthy home cooked meals. Albeit some of his treats are not so healthy or low fat. Even so, we could never really understand why he had so many gastro related issues.
Recently, we took an alternate approach to his care and wellbeing and sought the advise of a natural care vet in Sydney. This particular vet embraces and services an integrative approach to treating and administering medicine by combining the mainstream with natural medicine and alternate therapies.
It was interesting to discover that much of Jasperís abdominal issues could be due to IBS Ė irritable bowl syndrome.
Based on this, my repertoire of meal choices and planning for him has since expanded.
These Salmon and Kale Patties are an excellent source of protein, complex carbohydrates and omega 3 fats. If only, I could keep my husband away from Jasperís meals!
