Great report, dbg! I guess I wouldn't want the bandage on again, either

Does she normally eat kibble? If so, you can mix plain yogurt with it to make it seem like a special treat--a tablespoon or two should do it...sort of like frosted flakes. A teaspoon or two of pumpkin (pure pumpkin, not the kind that already has sugar and spices mixed in for pie filling) mixed in with the yogurt and kibble also makes a tasty change. (Yogurt is a natural probiotic and pumpkin is a good source of fiber and will keep her regular till she's back on her usual diet.) Try it with a small amount of her food (in case she doesn't eat it, you don't waste much) and see if that will entice her to eat. And offer her small portions, more times each day--if she hasn't eaten much lately, her tummy will feel more comfortable with small meals.

Good job, Pepper! You keep healing honey, eat your food, and pose for some of those pictures for us, okay?
