He's been on Wellness Core this past week, switched from Nutro brand. He loves the new good, regular BMs and no vomiting. He ate dinner at 5PM & his restlessness started after, he had a regular BM after dinner. I gave him a dog aspirin, a dog electrolyte and an ice towl, he seems to have calmed down now. We spent the afternoon swimming before this began. Maybe he has heat cramps?
