All natural baby foods? My angel sis Katie became overly picky, but turkey baby food got her going!
I would suggest the same like christmas, baby food is our treatment for this problem...hugs to you Sully, we send POTP and weim power to you
Hari OMYes the babyfood is a good idea; but one thing I know my Jade always like to lick up was natural yoghurt. I also used to make her ground chicken breast, steaming it. It is so difficult, this time when we can't properly ask "what would you like?"... POTP at full tilt this side... YAM xx
In the past, Macy has been prescribed Purina Rx Fortiflora Probiotic for you issues. If she's having one or two of her days in a row, mom will sprinkle a packet on her food and she scarfs it down. It's beef flavored powder. Maybe Sully's vet can get you some to try?
Does Sully like any vegetables? Not canned - I buy frozen or fresh veggies - no salt is added to them and not the kind with any sauce added and then steam or boil then I mash and add them to whatever else. Fresh sweet potatoes are also great when they are totally peeled, steamed or boiled then mashed. Also fresh or frozen blueberries - just let them thaw if frozen. Fresh apples - also totally peeled. You might want to check with your vet because of their fiber but all are low fat and super healthy.Mom Kim and Lady Shasta continue with the POTP and prayers and hugs - healing vibes too for Sully.
We wish we could think of something to help. When Bilbo doesn't eat, we have the same problem...the Vet actually gave him meds to stimulate his hunger and I believe that is what saved his life...BUT he doesn't have liver issues (he has Kidney issues). The name of the med is Mirtazapine....We bet you've tried it, but chicken broth over his food might also might help?Sending Prayers and POTP!
When Barkley was ill and fussy about food he would always eat a little dab of vanilla yogurt or low fat cottage cheese. Here's some more healing thoughts for Sully.
Sending Prayers and POTP with Hugs to all.Please keep us updated. So sorry to hear about Sully. Bentley & Mom
I thinks Chris' suggestion of baby food is a good one. Once Ma bought one of those rotisserie chickens from the supermarket, and I scarfed that down, butts I don't knows how low in fat they are (?) Canned doggie food is also a good choice. I likes freeze dried anythings, my fav is chicken. Let us know if any of this helps dude! Sendin' lots of POTP and healin' vibes ♥Kisses,Ruby ♥
Looks like you've got some great ideas there. We always go for the old boiled chicken and rice. Still sending POTP!..oh, and hugs.
The doc can give a pill to stimulate his appetite. Boil boneless chicken til falling apart. Take out chicken. Add Jasmine rice over cook. Add chicken keep cooking til it get poragy. Add chopped carrots, chopped string beans and 1choppwd sweet potato. Take off heat, let sit in covered pots til it gets poragy. If excess water, drainLily & Edward
My last beloved Scottie Half Pence had Cushing's Disease and I had to have a liver ultrasound and a liver biopsy. In his liver function panel test it was his ALT which was high. Foods that are rich in the B-complex vitamins such as eggs, brown rice use honey ~ in that was mixed boiled in water ground beef cooked chilled all fat taken off the top. He got to eating again and lived two more years with the Cushing's till cancer got him at 13 years.OSU Ohio State University gave us the receipt.Sweet William The Scot
Our 16-year-old Jack Russell (Holly) is also having a lot of problems with her appetite. She went from 16 pounds to 12 pounds in less than 6 months. Her liver as well as her thyroid aren't functioning as they should. Our vet put her on an appetite stimulant called "Mirtazapine" which she takes every other day. It has definitely stimulated her appetite, especially a couple hours after she takes her medication. She actually tries to jump into the air when I start fixing the feeding bowls. We'll be continuing our prayers and POTP for Sully.
Awwwww SULLY you GOTTA EAT Buddy. You got some Terrific Suggestions... Our mom sometimes cooks Skinless Chicken Breasts in Chicken Broth.. Shreds it when cooked and Tender... then mixes it with Cooked Rice... We can't get ENOUGH of that stuffs.
When. Reader had the pancreatitis issues the vet had us feed him science diet canned w/d dog food (it's low fat). He couldn't get enough. He also ate boiled chicken breast with rice and a bit of low sodium chicken broth. Keeping our paws crossed. Please eat, Sully!
That should be when Braeden....autocorrect strikes again...
It sounds like you're getting lots of great suggestions, Sully. Please eat, buddy! We continue to tightly cross our paws for you♥
Lots of great suggestions here for you Sully. We hope something gets your appetite going! keeping our prayers going for youhugsMr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel
I switched from kibbles to Raw Meat (BARF) patties when I suddenly lost all interest in kibbles. I'm taking the Kangaroo meat (I'm super excited at meal times) which is really low in fat but I dunno if it's suitable for your liver though. Do check with your vet. Hope you eat and get better soon. Hugs and PTOP, Bowie
No poultry. You knew a bird would say that. I'm not a vet but no poultry is a lot healthier for birds.
Praying for Sully.Sweet William
LBR dogs who aren't feeling well get chicken and rice to tempt them. Don't add spices, just the regular thing. Momma adds yogurt to my food when she wants me to eat more.
We doggies here have raw meat and love that. Maybe some raw minced chicken breast? Milk thistle is really good to support liver function - not sure if it has been mentioned by your vet? https://www.vetinfo.com/milk-thistle-treatment-for-dog-liver-disease.htmlWe are all sending positive thoughts and love to Sully and your family and hope he improves very soon - nose licks and love from Moth & the doggies and hugs from the peeps xx
Oh Sully... I've been thinking of you. Our K had chronic pancreatitis so we know about low fat. We often used non-fat chicken broth to make any food more appetizing to her. Non-fat yogurt was another favorite. Or, buying human chicken and removing the skin (after cooking). My last idea for now is baby food - Gerber has chicken and meat baby foods and I think that most of them are low fat. K adored them. I really hope that you start eating soon, Sully. We love you.
Thinking of you Sully!hugsMr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel
Add me to those out here that have been thinking of Sully and sending lots of POTP in your direction. I hope by now, there has been some improvement in Sully's appetite - You've gotten some great suggestions here, and KB's are the ones I'd suggest. Did someone suggest scrambled eggs? IF you still need some thoughts, canned green tripe (for dogs) is stinky enough that dogs like it. And it's also really good for the liver. I also hope they've given Sully something for nausea, which may be why he's not eating. Cerenia is the usual medication, and to jump start their appetite, I've also been given mirtazapine to try. Please let us know how it's going, and know that so many like me are sending lots of good vibes for your most special boy.
Thinking of you Sully and sending POTP your way today.Your FriendSweet William The Scot
