    Good morning!
    AMPS 148 shooting 1.0u

    Boomer ate most of his overnight fuds leaving a bit of his +6.

    Allen is eating very well (anti jinx) since I've been giving him his "buffet" of food using the auto feeder dish but not using the auto feeder. I give him 3 foods to choose from and there is a bit of clearlax and a bit of pumpkin (as well as p-binder) in each one. He's been a bit more active; although he's still spending a lot of time alone in one of the bedrooms he was also out looking out the window a few times yesterday. And during the day when he wants food he comes out to get us (of course we can't leave his buffet available during the day because of Boomer the Hoover). But....he hasn't pooped in almost 48 hours again (unless it's in a different box, we'll see once DH cleans the boxes in a bit). He gets a cisapride each morning. If he doesn't poop today we will give him a cisapride in the evening too.

    Today's photo is of a Song Sparrow.

    Nice start for Boomer. I hope he heads to the lagoon and surfs. I'm glad Allen is eating better and being more active. I hope he gives you some poop today. Great picture.

    Forgot to mention....we are hoping to go to Stratford today but want to leave no later than +5. So I'm going to give Boomer a tsp of food at +2 hoping to slow down any descent he has planned for today. And we won't be able to leave Allen's buffet open for him because of Boomer the Hoover but will feed at +5 just before we leave and they'll both have their auto feeders for +6 and +9.

    :( poor boy. I know when Gizmo is constipated if affects his eating. I think the epogen (for anemia) is either causing it or it is a metabolic result of it. He was going but small, dark and pellet like. As much as I don't want to (for dehydration reasons) I have been sprinkling 1/64 teaspoon of Miralax in each of his snacks and then I drizzle water over it and the food. If he has had a good poo I reduce it down or skip it in that cycle, if not, I maintain. So far so good, he probably could use just a tiny bit more but the balance thus far is keeping things moving on, mostly, a regular basis. Gizmo has rarely been more that slightly dehydrated (at vet visits) and drinks plenty of water.

    I had the look up cisapride. I hadn't heard of it. :bighug::bighug: Poo vines or Allen. :cat:

    Do you give sub-q fluids (I think you do if memory serves)? How much and how often? Gizmo usually only gets them occasionally, usually when he isn't feeling well. I should probably give him some but the poor lil guy already got three shots tonight:oops:

    Yeah I give Allen miralax. And pumpkin. Cisapride. Fluids (although he likes to get up during it and sometimes dislodges the needle so gets only part of the dose. sigh.
