stronger still..

July 16, 2013

Well the ensure wetdogfood yogurt chicken soup smoothies on top of a different appetite stimulant seemed to work. chuck ate am entire roasted chicken and sweet potatoes yesterday. And today he did the same. On his own. Out of his bowl. No hand feeding. With. .. wait for it. … his own dry dog food?! Granted it was about a cup of it but whaaaaa?! Who is this big oaf?! I love him so much.

He had started limping. something he hasn’t done since pre chemo. And I’m trying to not freak out. I know I have options that can help with it. Whether we amp or try modifying the treatment plan, I know there are Options for this hurdle. It’s just nice to see him getting stronger and I’ll be honest I’m a little freaked out no matter what we choose that we will backtrack with the eating stuff again. But I guess today I’ll rejoice in my big boys full belly 🙂

    Pretty soon he’ll be packing on the pounds 🙂 Vibes for the limp–hopefully it’s nothing at all! <3

    Woooohooo! I hope things continue to go this well and get even better for Chuck.

    When it comes to the limping: keep an eye on it but try to keep in mind that now that he’s feeling better, he’s using his body more and probably sore. Try to take a note of when it occurs and how it presents itself, then discuss with your vet of course.

    Keep us posted!

    That is fantastic that he is eating. It sounds like a gross combination, but it Chuck likes it, it must be good 🙂
