That is interesting (and I'm sorry to hear you were on this chemo, too. I hope you are doing well). I wonder if she has some sores. I will look. Though, she is still eating crunchy cookies. I totally forgot to ask the oncologist yesterday about Nutracal or something like Dogsure. I will when I speak to them today.

Thank you, that was many years ago, and after a BMT I am still her to annoy and embarrass my teenager.

The crunchy cookies, would probably indicate she does not have sores, but it is still possible.

If you want to add so more calories to her tuna, could you mix it with yogurt? If she is having soft poop, maybe ask the vet, if you can use imodium, it slows transit time in the intestine, so I don't think it will affect the chemo.

I am only in Oakville, so if you need anything, I too will make myself available. I also still have the Honest Kitchen samples if you want them.

Take care of yourself, we already know you are doing an amazing job taking care of Tee

Wanted to make sure that you saw Sydney's Mom offer-how wonderful:
It's on the this page.
http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...en-say-73.html (The tests were wrong. I can't even say it.)

I'm in the same city. If you ever need ANYTHING -- a drive to VEC with her even -- just holla. My work is literally a block from VEC.

You shouldn't have to go through this alone!

As far as your question whether you should try to force Tee to eat when she is nauseated, I would offer something to her, but if she resists, I wouldn't force her.

I *think* I might have found a magic formula that gets her balanced nutrition! At least for now... It is still worrying me that the Cerenia, the magic anti-nausea bullet, does not seem to be working. She is eating, but still with much tempting on my part. I do have 2 more days of Cerenia pills to follow up, so hopefully she'll be eating normally again soon. But the big news...

She likes the Fromm wet food. Hallelujah! So I am doing a half can of wet food with a half cup of kibble mixed in twice a day - AND SHE IS EATING IT. The ingredients are so good, I would eat it. Seriously. So right now, she gets about 160 calories from wet + 200 calories from kibble twice a day. And I am going to slowly up the kibble amount (I don't want to scare her off it by putting in too much) because that's still not enough. I am worried about giving her too much until her tummy gets used to being full again. She is still not getting hungry - I need to lure her with the smell of the food (I literally bring the dish into the bedroom, let her get a whiff, and then bring it back out to the kitchen).

She also gets lots of cookies - probably six a day now. I got the recipe for the homemade cookies the oncologist's assistant the VEC was giving us - they have milk and cheese, so she is getting some nutrition there, too.

*** What formula do you guys use to determine calories/day? There are a few around. Before she got sick, she was 55 pounds. She is now about 52 pounds, so she needs to gain and then probably needs a bit more because she is sick. How do I figure out how much she needs?

Thank you so, so much. This is very kind. I promise I will take you up on it if I ever need to. It means a lot.

That is so great that you have found something that she will eat with the kibble! I think about you every day as you go through this challenging time. Tesia is so lucky to have such a loving mom.

Great to hear that Tesia is eating something, keeping my fingers crossed that she keeps eating.
