Andy ate his morning pills wrapped in a ball of braunschweiger, chewing while I held his mouth and blew in his nose. Yeah! Katie and Ollie gleefully ate some too.

Just want to thank Danny for being willing to share Any's experience and everyone who offered suggestions to help with Andy's eating. You are helping more people than you know. My girl isn't eating this morning... until I tried some of your suggestions.

Here's to Andy and his buddies for being such a wonderful guiding light.
May sweet Andy continue to be stronger every day and return to his usually gobbly self.

Thanks, Doug You all help me more than I could ever help someone else

I tried different foods for breakfast. Andy turned his nose up at rice and chicken, lamb, eggs, and three different kinds of high quality dog food, so I went to grocery store and bought a couple other different kinds of canned food. He turned his nose up at Fromm, but ate half a small can of Pedigree (after carefully sniffing for pills in it) and only had a few sips of milk before leaving the rest in his bowl.

When we went for a short walk he had diarrhea. He doesn't have much energy, as he walked quite slowly rather than running for even a few feet as he normally does. It's a bit of a dilemma. On one hand needing to keep food in him so the pills aren't sitting there by themselves, and on the other needing to rest his GI tract. I think I'm going to stop all pills for a couple days. At least until he starts eating normally again.

I just called NVS about when to take him completely off the Gabapentin. The on duty vet said since he's been on 100mg for 3 days we could stop it now. Hoping his appetite will return soon.

Danny

So glad that Andy ate some Pedigree canned food. Smooch really liked the Pedigree and Alpo canned dog food, when she didn't want to eat.

I'm glad Andy is going off of the Gabapentin-bet that is the problem.
