    DefaultHelp, Help, for Tankie Please

    He woke me up last night at 1:30 am with some kind of spasms. SU gone, I got him in the car somehow and drove him to Texas A&M in a driving Texas thunderstorm. Took me 3 hours. They admited him and checked him out today. He has a platelet problem that needs to be reviewed Friday. He was losing his hair and I am thinking it was a protein deficiency in his dog food. Thyroid and endocrine tests won't be back for a few days yet.

    My question is: How much chicken & rice should I give him for a 97 pound dog per day?

    Sandie, I'm so sorry. Good thoughts for you and Tank.
    Don't know about chicken/rice...actually I was just going to post as to whether it should be ground chicken or boiled chicken parts.

    I don't know what amount either....maybe the same amount you would give of regular dog food??? Hope you can get ahold of your vet and ask them.

    Prayers for you Tank....get well soon!
