I hope you get my message as I am going through the same thing and yes there are days that I want to crawl up next to her and hold on tight. I have a Husky that I rescued 7 years ago, she is blind but no one would know. She is grateful for every little thing so when she stopped eating and running to the kitchen when I was cooking I knew something was wrong. It got bad for awhile and I can't tell you how many visits to different vets & specialists it took until I got the info I needed. There is a great Doctor that comes to Nashville from Atlanta once a month and specializes in this condition. She has been my angel and so grateful. I know this is a lifetime condition that I will need to managed and I have come to terms with the fact she will not be the playful husky she once was but she is my girl and I will fight for her to the very end. She has problems eating some days and that is my biggest worry. I have the gel that has calories for energy that I always keep in stock and she loves peanut butter. There are articles on giving peanut butter to your dog you might want to read. She likes barbque and other people food but as the doctor and I agree, it will not be what I feed her that will take her eventually. I just want to get weight on her and I never thought I would say that but it is one day at a time. I hope Miss Daisy is doing better and if you need to run ideas by one another I would be happy to do the same. My girl is Mischa, she is red/white and worth all the effort I have to put into her feeling better. TammyView Thread
