Well. Here we are again, still chugging along. Bacchus has a stubborn streak that is putting my patience to the test. Eating is still a problem. At least that which is nutritious. As you can see, he's not crazy about taking his pills any more.
After consultation with his cardiologist, we've started him on a human anti-depressant that works as an appetite stimulant in dogs. We're hoping it works - and that we can use a generic because it is prohibitively expensive! Today is second his day. If it's going to help it should be kicking within the next couple of days. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
We had a good week. The continuing snow keeps the old boy happy even though everyone else is thoroughly tired of it. Once it's gone he'll have to go back to drinking water like a regular dog rather than laying for what seems hours eating snow.
Today's video is longer than I like to post but I wanted you to have an idea just what it takes to get pills into a very stubborn dog. Patience - and for the sake of your fingers - prudence!
Next Friday we go to WSU for a check up and an assessment of how he's doing. From our point of view it's not bad. We're still allowing him to romp if he wants. Walk as far as he wants and pretty much eat what he wants. Why is it I don't think anyone will indulge me to this extent!
