Hey Buster, I don't know about you but I love my cottage cheese and flaxseed oil that my mommy fixes for me.  Is it because you don't like berries or any kind of fruit?  Well, to be honest I don't either (sort of). If my mom puts the berries in my bowl with my food I smell them and keep on going. Fortunately for me, she discovered that if she chops them in the food processor or the blender and then mix it in with the rest of my fruit, I lick the bowl up.  Tell your mommy to try putting the cottage cheese, oil and fruit in the blender and then mix it with your kibbles.  maybe you will like it that way. Take it from me - a finicky eater.

Hi Kellie,

   I was just wondering, after your doggies surgery, was he extra picky? It  has been a little over a week, and i attribute it to the pain med, but his appetite is not the same... and he is constipated. My poor Baba...UndecidedI've tried to help him with tuna, mineral oil and just learned about pureed canned pumpkin. I guess every dogs system is different.... The DR said is was OK, but its not OK with me.. (ps I've been making him homemade chicken soup all this week, he loves the broth & the chickies)

Help,

Kim&Buster

Hi Kim,

What was Buster's diet like before his amp? If it's changed since then, that could probably be why he's being picky. A lot of changes all at once make us dogs confused. Give him time.

My Mom mixes just a couple of tablespoons of Evo canned meat into my supplements and cottage cheese, that's the only way I'll chow down on that stuff. When she doesn't put the meat in there, I ignore it. That Evo rabbit/duck/venison/beef stuff is great!

Hi Kim,  since Kellie's diagnosis my husband and I did a lot of research.  Most of the changes we made to Kellie's diet came after reading this site and reading about Jerry's diet.  I also bought The Natural Vet's guide to preventing and treating cancer in dogs...recommended also in this site.  Like Jerry says I started switching Kellie's diet a bit at a time so that she would not have a drastic change.  She likes the Evo food and I also (like Jerry's pawrents) mix her supplements and cottage cheese with her food.  So far so good.  At the beginning she was finicky and did not want to eat a lot and many days I had to sit on the floor and pretty much hand feed her but with time, patience and after being off the medications it got much better.   Kellie is pretty much back to her old self but she does get tired a lot quicker and when that happens and she is ready to call it for the day she will let us know. Have faith and just know that it will take time for Buster to get back into the swing of things, but he will. Hope this helps...

Isabel (Kellie's mom)

Hello Kellie & Isabel,Smile

     I've been introducing his new & improved diet gradually. I still syringe  his chicken broth and hand feed him as well (post-op). I hope the holistic vet is helpful.....Does anyone else use one?? Buster does have chronic uveitis (an eye condition) i feel in my gut the meds prescribed to treat this condition impaired his immune system which led to this.... Although no one in the conventional vet community will agree. He was on Imuran & predisone for over a year. I feel VMD's treat all cases alike, not taking into account each case on an individual bases. I never did get a solid explanation what caused his eye condition despite all the testing. I feel all the meds given to our pets do have side effects, looking for a way to treat Buster as a whole rather then just a former cancer dog.

I love my Buster.... I pray we find a cure for this dreaded disease soon...

PS I noticed his book is on here, here is his site  http://www.drpitcairn.com
