    Thanks, yes it's a huge relief for me.

    When he told me, he told me how much the food cost. He wasn't convinced. I said, that's because it is real food. How much does it cost to buy real food for yourself?

    I feed my cat Wilderness Salmon kibbles. His coat is so thick and silky and shiny. He bathes more than any other cat I've ever had. Stunning and immaculate, in my unbiased opinion.

    We feed our dog and two cats with a high quality food as well. It is pretty expensive but I find you have to feed less because there's no fillers. I'm glad to hear he came around.. it will be a benefit to your dog.

    Sounds like digestibility is high in the HQ food, so less bad stuff coming out or affecting the animals..

    So far it is only the one fish that appears to have the problem.

    It is a little more off white today, so I thought maybe it's responding to the treatment. But when I look closely, it seems to be slightly thicker, which I guess would happen with fungus. The dark spot below also seems a little more pronounced.

    He still shows no other signs of illness.

    So you would choose to euthenize the one fish immediately? I don't have a QT tank to move the fish to. It's unpleasant, but I will do it if it is best. I used to have to euthenize half-dead birds, mice, lizards and such because of my cats when I lived in the mountains. I never got used to it, but I knew I was saving them from a long drawn out death.
    I know this is not for me, but I wouldn't euthanize the fish yet, especially since it's not acting in distress. I know the mark is getting bigger, but oftentimes injuries look thicker with scar tissue before they heal. If it is true fungus, it won't be contagious either. Unless the fish starts going downhill, can you give it a couple days with extra care and see how it looks?

    Same here, we feed our dog high quality expensive food. Chelsea is now 12 years old, I want her to be the healthiest she can be. If you can't afford nutritious food, don't keep a pet is how I feel. I spend a lot on fish food too, that stuff isn't cheap!

    It takes a significant amount of energy to digest food. If the food isn't high nutrition and/or easily digestible, the benefits of ingestion may be cancelled out, or actually take more than is obtained from the food.

    People somehow attribute some magic power to pets that allows them to survive and thrive on crap. I guess they figure the leavings are just as good, but taste a lot worse, which is no problem for pets as they will eat anything that tastes like meat. This, as we agree, is wrong. They also think whatever their pet will eat is good for them. The pet industry has figured out how to make things taste good to your pet. The ex still feeds Cleo Milk Bone, which is basically wheat. Dogs don't eat wheat. They likely get an allergy from it, and it messes up their digestion.

    When I worked as a truck driver, I smelled the liquid leavings they make the pet food from, and it was unbearable. They transport it as a liquid, then boil and extrude it. Whatever it was it becomes something else. It's better than no food, but not by much. Someone has to then get down in the tank and clean it out after this load. This was pretty much the lowest person on the totem pole of the entire transportation industry. And people feed this to their pets.

    Hi Angel, my fish is doing better, thank goodness. He responded right away to the initial dose of ParaGuard I gave him. Either that, or it cleared up on its own.

    I still have so much to learn, including how, when and why to euthanize. I'm glad to put that lesson off for another day!

    One of my hunting dogs had issue after issue and I couldn't get him lined out for more than a couple weeks or a month and two years of vet visits later an ancient man we hunted with occasionally caught sight of him looked at him about 5 minutes and said you know your dog has a grain allergy right? I said no! He said yeah and get off the cedar bedding he's allergic to that too... I didn't really believe the guy but swapped out the beds and next bag of food I made 100% grain free it was an immediate difference in him. I took him to the vet for shots a few months later and the vet said how great he looked and ask which vet figured it out and what it was lol when I told him who and how we got it figured out he laughed and said if he'd have known I knew that old guy he'd have sent me his way he pins dog illnesses like a psychic. I fed a quality food but now all my animals are grain free and my vet bills are literally annual check ups and my old lady dogs thyroid stuff. Very glad your ex finally came around he'll notice a difference soon enough!
