Well Tyson got his stitches/staples out woohoo!! and my vet said NO RESTRICTIONS he can have Nylabones, regular kibble and it does not have to be soaked in water, treats, exercise, whatever YIPPEE!!! Oh and he had gained a pound which considering he's only been eating the correct amount of food now for 10 days that's not too bad of a weight gain. You can still see his hip bones, but since he's gaining weight those should be going away in the next 3-4 weeks. So he's doing very well.
