I waited for my wife to go on vacation around the 4th and I immediately switched her pom to chicken wings. I wasn't concerned about the meat being brought down by angels, so I went to the local grocer and bought the bulk bag of wings for 69 cents a pound.
Her dog was on seizure medication, so I stopped that, too. He dog was scratching furiously, too. Did all of that stop immediately? No, but over time her skin got better and she's had only one seizure (she still had them even while on medication). It took about two weeks for the scratching to subside.
Her dog is 8 or 9 years old and has been eating dry dog food the entire time and was always hungry, even though she was fed twice per day. Now, she is fed one wing in the afternoon (and she eats bones and all) and she is satisfied. Now, she will perk up when she sees one of us eating, but she's not constantly begging for food like before.
As far as shocking her system, there have only been two episodes that she has thrown anything up, and it wasn't even chunks, just a bit of liquid. One of those times was when she did get a bit of my daughter's KFC.
I was a bit reckless with the switch, but I had been talking about it for months and decided to go for it.
