Sprocket’s improvement has held up overall over the weekend. He isn’t symptom-free but he is doing so much better. He is enjoying his days rather than acting reclusive and depressed and afraid to run around.
Sometime this past week before he started improving more consistently, I stopped giving him the grain-free Indigo Moon crunchies because it seemed like giving him the crunchies would often trigger an episode. It may not be anything in the food because sometimes an episode would start before the crunchies were even served. Perhaps the excitement of anticipating the crunchies that he loves was the trigger. It is also possible that the correlations were nothing more than coincidental. Other episodes seem to be triggered by increased activity – one happened when he was feeling better and chasing Lotus, another happened after I played feathers with him. For the time being, at least, I am eliminating the crunchies from his diet.
