Here is Beau, home from hospital and recovering nicely from surgery, though the mass in his abdomen is inoperable. However, the new dearth of testosterone from the neuter process and the recommended treatment combo seems to be working. That is to say, (without all the yucky details) Beau’s digestive system is working and he’s eating well again.
The last week has been a series of coaxing him to eat, hand-feeding, finding the right combo to entice him (Boiled chicken, canned dog food and Libby’s canned pumpkin with a drizzle of bacon drippings and a side of fresh chicken broth to drink.)
His appetite is back, his tail is wagging and there’s a definite spring in his step again. Whew! We’re not totally out of the woods yet, but we’re very hopeful he’ll be with us for a good while longer.
That’s it for today. I’m off to cut up more boiled chicken!
