So glad to hear sweet Tee is eating better. When my old boy Clyde was losing weight and interest in food, I made him satin balls; they really helped him. He now gets rice and ground turkey in every meal to keep him eating. Best wishes and thoughts to you and sweet Tee.

This makes me so happy to read that she is eating and liking it! Hopefully she will pack some pounds on now. : )

Very glad to hear that you've found something that she'll eat! You're working so hard to make sure Tesia gets what she needs, I'm sure she knows how lucky she is to have you for her Mom and I know you feel the same about her

I'm glad Tee is eating the Fromms! That's fantastic news! Toby just experienced a round of colitis this week and the two Cerenia injections didn't help him. We were told to just not push it (even though he's 52 lbs now) and if we offered and he turned his nose, just offer it again several hours later. I was shocked when we hospitalized him yesterday and refused to eat for them.

Yay for sweet Tesia eating. Keep it up sweet girl.

ETA : I found those two caloric requirement calculator to give you an idea about how many calories she would need. By putting 55 lbs as her optimal weight, it gives you around 1200 calories a day but those are just estimates.

I'm so glad to hear that you found something she will eat!! Yay!!
According to Royan Canin's veterinary guide, a 55 pound dog at rest needs 782 calories per day to maintain weight. That's really not a lot (also why so many dogs gain weight on more than 2 cups of food a day!).
I did the waltham calculator for Tito, and it said he needs 1675 calories per day....he'd be a keg with legs if I let him eat that much! Royal Canin's says 937 plus some for activity, which sounds a lot more like it.

Another thought...I'm sorry if this sounds overwhelming right now...but you might want to continue to experiment and find something else, or 2 more things, that she will eat and then rotate the foods. I think she might be less likely to refuse the foods if you rotate them a bit.

Really glad that Tee is eating at the moment. Hotel4dogs is definitely right though keep experimenting as when Daisy was poorly she kept changing her mind everyday what she liked and didn't like.
Yay, go Tee though keep it up girl you're doing great!

There aren't words adequate to express how good it is to read that sweet Tesia is eating again. Praying that her appetite continues to improve. I know what a load it takes off your shoulders when they are eating and drinking again!
