    Yesterday

    He's eating really well, thank goodness, but seems weak. We gave him fluids the last two nights and added B-12 to last night's dose. We ordered Zobaline, but it won't be here for several days.

    I was surprised to see him hit greens at only a .25 dose. Since we aren't strict enough with his diet to do TR anymore, we took a reduction after his 89. Reducing from. 25 isn't easy!

    I have been flipping between 0.1..S.01 (less 1 drop) and .1 less 2 drops. I use the insulin ruler to help with the 0.1 - my old eye disease makes reading the small doses really hard ;)

    If anyone has extra prayers, please send them this way for my dog, Trixie. We are at the emergency vet. Her stomach bloated. She's going into surgery. She's my constant companion. I'm really scared.

    Sending lots of prayers. Hope all goes well. As for micro dosing I was there .25 was hard but when you have to go smaller to 1 drop ha that's even harder trust me I was there to. I wish you all the luck and prayers

    Thanks. Trixie made it through surgery. They have tacked one side of her stomach to the stomach wall to stop it from twisting if she bloats again. They said her liver has a laceration and is seeping blood. They hope it stops overnight.

    She's just like my kid. This is tough.

    Oh sweetheart, I am so sorry. Here's fervent hoping that Trixie is going to improve tonight, and heals well and in good time. You know we are all with you in spirit. Please try to rest and stay well, so that you can take care of Trixie when she comes home. :bighug:

    Thanks all! Sorry to derail from cats to talk about a dog issue. The doc called and Trixie is doing okay. She hasn't eaten so I'm heading there in an hour with her food from here. Your kind words are much appreciated!

    Hugs and prayers for you all.
    My 7 year old Kimmy just had her spay and hernia surgery, took her longer than expected to get her appetite back, but she eventually did.
    Hope Trixie comes around for you soon.

    Praying for Trixie. She is a beautiful girl. I'm hoping she clears this hurdle and is back home soon. It's so hard to watch them like this. They are our kids. :bighug:

    I had chicken nuggets here and got one in her. My mother checked in on her and asked if I needed anything from the store and I asked her to get some hamburger. Should be here soon.

    I know when a friend's dog bloated and did surgery only way to get her to start eating was soaking her food till mush and giving it warm. Being as its soaked its kinda like predigested easier on tummy for awhile then we slowly put it back to normal.

    After Kimmy's surgery, we started with giving her chicken broth in a pipette because she was too weak to lift her head. Then we started the mushy soaked food. A few hours later, she was able to eat on her own. She just needed a little help in the beginning.

    Hope the hamburger helps.

    With the tummy surgery, did the vet recommend a liquid or mostly liquid diet to start? The chicken broth Rosie suggested sounds like a good idea, nourishing and might be appealing to Trixie, might be a step to soft food and then more?
