But its all right now, in fact, its a gas!
But its all right. I'm jumpin jack flash,
It's a gas! gas! gas!
That song gets me movin! And it also was the first thing Mum and I thought about when we (think?) we discovered something that's been going on with me the past couple of weeks. Listen along while you read if you want :)
So you may remember that Mum thought I was having some tightness in my iliopsoas. I'd be playing and wrestling with Gracie, then suddenly I'd want to come inside, lie down in my bed or the nearest comfy commercial furniture and not want to come up for quite a while. This happened once the week before last, and once last week. Mum gave me a couple of days and then, viola!, I was fine, and completely back to my wacky self.
Last week when it happened Mum poked me all over trying to find out where it hurt. I stretched out my back legs, nothing...She was baffled and gettin' kinda worried.
So, it just came to happened that our friend Coryelle, who is an animal communicator, emailed us the last day it happened. Mum got bold and decided to ask her if she would be willing to 'talk' to me and see what was up. Could save us $100's of bucks and wouldn't that be nice!
So Coryelle called Mum last week from Germany and said that she thought it was something like a gas bubble in my stomach/side area. And that it hurt a lot, but we 'released' it was gone. So they got to talking about what diet changes I had had recently and Mum instantly remembered that each day I got the 'bubble' was the day that she mixed my glucosomine/chondroitin supplement with my kibble and yogurt. Well, well, well...she stopped doing it and guess what, no gas! And so far so good.
Mum is going to try the supplement with me on it's own, then she's gonna try it with my kibble to see if that food combo affects me. But you can bet she's not gonna combine the yogurt and the supplement!
When Mum was growing up, her Mum talked a lot about food combinations and how you shouldn't eat certain foods like breads and fruits at the same time, for example, because it doesn't digest together and you receive much more of the benefits of the foods when eaten separately.
Interesting stuff. Guess time will tell.
