I know she will feel better at home, and so will the family, but your vet knows when the time is right. It rally does not hurt a dog to fast for a few days, with her condition though, eating will help her energy.
I never advise this unless under extreme circumstances...hand feed. It can become a habit but one that can be fixed. Hand feeding is like a "comfort food" thing.
She deserves to be babied!
LOL Karin you should see me feeding her with a spoon or by hand, however she will take it IMHO but right now she doesn't want any part of either method. I think she's just exhausted and will hopefully start eating in a day or two. She at least likes the Hi Cal which I can substitute if necessary.
