Twix is doing better!!!!
Thank you all so much for the feeding suggestions. I have never had to deal with a dog that won't eat and several of your tips worked. She will eat from a syringe on her own without me forcing it down her. Currently, she is eating applesauce, yogurt, baby food fruits, and strawberry ice cream. She snarfs down that ice cream!!! We have known that she was having vision problems but I don't think she is blind. It seems she has a hard time finding her food so I am starting to wonder if her sense of smell is not working so great either. She doesn't eat a lot at one time but her energy is starting to come back. She even picked a fight with her sister last night! Up til yesterday she acted like she didn't even care that Taffy was here so I was glad to see that. I know, it's crazy that I was happy to see my dogs fight. It was just a 3 second spat and no one was injured.
Now that Twix is starting to feel better, having Taffy seems to be giving her a bit more incentive to eat also. She has not eaten true dog food in quite a while and she ate some Fresh Pet yesterday. I tried it before all the other stuff when we got home from work today and she turned away from it. Later, when I fed Taffy and she got Fresh Pet, Twix was much more interested and ate a little herself.
Twix still has her head twitch but it is not nearly like it was in the video. Her daddy and I are going to take her back to the specialty clinic next week for a consultation. Dr. Abby suggested we start with an internal medicine doctor there and he/she will probably want to get a neurologist involved. I will update you guys after her appointment--I haven't made it yet because we just made this decision today.
My mom is doing good as well. We are still in a holding pattern but she will be having another bone marrow biopsy the first part of March. We are praying that the results will be a definite yes she has it or no she doesn't.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your support with both of these situations.
Twix and/or Taffy will be back to posting this weekend with pictures ;o)
