A few changes in the last couple of days….when I first started this I really didn’t want to use rice but felt that she needed some sort of “filler” to her lonely chicken. But I have cut that out now. I am putting 1/4 cup of soaked oat bran in with her mid day chicken meal. A friend said she had a dog with the exact symptoms and this really helped clear him up…..so worth a try. It seems to be working. She is having more and more formed stools and not frantic to run out the door to go to the bathroom. I am also adding a sprinkling of bone meal to her meals. Her diet is no way “balanced” but I am just working on getting her healthy and able to gain weight.
I still add to one meal through the day :acacia fiber, pet enzymes, grapeseed extract and golden seal. She is also getting 1/2 pet tab vitamin each day. She continues to get her 0.4 mg of thyroxine twice a day.
I have been weighing her every few days. After continually loosing weight for weeks she stablized at 36 pounds. This morning she was 36.6. YEAH! I just want to continue to see that increase continue over the weeks. I am adding a bit more chicken every day and will try adding just a small amount of fat (I have been taking all the skin off the chicken). She is still on 3 meals a day.
Today is her cobalamin shot (once a week) and that will continue long term until her system is normal (if it ever can become that!).
