Today at the vet she was down a couple pounds *sigh* but doing okay.
We have had success with a diet and NOT one I would normally advocate for a canine.
We had been giving her cottage cheese, cooking rice for her and a few times a week sweet potatoes. Before I left for Potomac I had Blair start giving her half a sample package of Natural Balance Vegitarian food and we had NO inflamitory bowel blowouts!!!!!!!!!!
She is now eating almost a cup of the Veggie kibble and still getting rice and cottage cheese. So far so good. Coat staying healthy.
The other side of it.....she just seems to not be as active but still a VERY happy dog. Today at the clinic Blair just carried her in and the teck who drew blood (and someone I know well) looked up at me while she was on the floor and I could see her eyes starting to well up. All I could say was "I know...Our time is precious right now".
She is still happy, eats like a horse, can still RUN in the house when its dinner time LOL .... So I think she will be her for just a little while longer.
I'm sorry Kim. It's tough seeing that your time with them is short. Keep the camera handy.

gives me goosebumps reading your post. Hugs to sweet Cinder.
I'm glad to hear the food is working out alright with her so far.
((((hugs)))) for you and Cinder.
She seemed very happy when I saw her a week ago. I think the girl still has a bit left in her. You will know when it is time.
Hugs and prayers here - keep her close!
Oh. That is so sad.
It must be so difficult to watch this progress. ((hugs)) for Cinder AND you.

I am very sorry Kim, each moment with her is precious for sure.
