I’m happy to report that Jersey found his appetite at dinner.
It MAY have been the freshly boiled salmon filet that I had prepared for him (as well as his usual kibble, soaked with warm water)…. But he gobbled it up! Thank goodness! He hadn’t eaten anything since yesterday morning (and even that he threw up!) so I was getting fairly concerned. I have left over salmon to tempt him with tomorrow morning at breakfast, and also have a few pieces of boiled chicken to use as well. I’m trying to not feed him TOO much in one go– the vet said small amounts, several times a day– but I want to make sure that his body has the calories it needs to fight off this infection.
I have stocked up on a few other goodies for Jersey while he’s sick::
‘no-salt added chicken broth’ to add to his normal water to encourage him to drink as much as possible
Plain yogurt for pro-biotics
The occasional boiled egg for calories & protein
pumpkin & yam puree for fibre.
He’s getting so spoiled while he’s sick, that I am not sure if he’ll ever go back to eating his normal, boring kibble!!
What do you feed YOUR doggies when they are sick?
