That’s wonderful! Pooping helps too, empties him out and gets that appetite going
You are getting there
Just checking in to see how things are going, hope all is well ❤
I just wrote a response but think it went to email😬
slow but good progress. Went to oncologist yesterday so that was quite a hectic day for him. Gave him an appetite stimulant yesterday so he ate well last night. Pooping better and more regularly. Staples came out as well. Still quite challenging getting him to eat but trying all sorts. Think he is still adjusting to Gabapentin as well.
Yay for staples OUT!!! I will take slow progress over no progress any day lol. I am so glad things are finally starting to smooth out for you. I am glad the appetite stimulant is working, has been a miracle worker for me with Mitch. You may also see better appetite just having those staples removed.
What a great update, thank you for sharing. I know you guys have been through a rough road with this!

What a victory! This is the dog who had you so worried not too long ago? WOW! His pawgress is wonderful and such great news.
By the way when you are able, don’t forget to start a new topic in Treatment and Recovery now that you’ve graduated from the diagnosis phase OK? That way people can follow along with his journey a little better. Thanks!
