I rescued a carian terrier he was fed scraps when they felt like feeding him and most of the water he got was rain water. He had hook worms pretty bad. I have taken him to the vet and he is worm free and over all healthy but as far as food goes I am having a hard time on finding the right food for him he can only seem to handle moist and meaty the other foods I have tried make him vomit. the moist and meaty is good but I don't feel he is getting what he needs because he always acts as though he is starved and it only comes in one flavor. any suggestions? I also have rescued a tea cup chihuahua and she also does not seem to be getting what is needed as far as food.

Hopefully your carian terrier just has a delicate tummy. I would suggest having your vet do a routine blood test to show if the liver is functioning properly. I had a Cairn terrier who stared to vomit her food but otherwise seemed healthy. The test showed that her liver enzyme count was very high. More tests confirmed this and she was put on a special diet and medication, not too expensive either. I would never have known if that simple blood test hadn't been taken. Good luck to you and your new friend.

Do not worry. My dog does that. Cairn Terrier's sometimes do that even though they are full
