Today isn't so great May 3

Roller coaster again with her. Last night she started to eat a little of the renal food mixed with the ground chicken I had just boiled, and stopped. DH syringe fed 2 ccs of renal food (Royal Canin) into her. Then she ate yogurt and a bunch of peas on her own.

She hasn't had the appetite stimulant since Sat., I believe.

This a.m. she was fine, ate chicken with her pills, hungry. That was 5 a.m. Then today at lunch for the pet sitter, nada. Not even chicken. She walked fine, peed and pooped and jumped into the window, but refused all food.

I rushed home for lunch, tried to coax her into eating. Nothing. She was meh. Not even blowing in her face would animate her. Worried. So I syringed pumpkin baby food down her, a little, and she belched. Maybe an upset stomach.

So hard to gauge all this. All we can do is our best. We don't know how much longer she has, but does any pet owner with a dog with an incurable disease? So heartbreaking when they are doing poorly, and when they are feeling good and eating, a cause for joy.
