Awww... poor Shadow, and you! Sounds like you both had a bit of a rough night
Give her a hug for me
I'm glad to see that she gained a pound though!! Hopefully she will hold out and give you a little more quality time with her, sweet old girl

I'm always so worried about the jerky and choking. I don't know what brand you use, but be careful with them. We made a HUGE mistake of giving Thorin TONS of them over a few years. The brand was Waggin' Tails or something like that, the chicken jerky. One thing I ddn't realize is that certain brands can cause cancer because they are irradiated. Look for a little radiation symbol anywhere on the package. On ours it was on the back, at the bottom and not too noticeable. Once I realized what it was, we immediately stopped using them. Dr. marsden said it may have contributed to Thorins cancer.
