All about Abbey
We all know how important nutrition is to good health. Food gives us fuel for energy and allows us to do things that we usually take for granted. The same goes for animals. However, when an animal is sick, or is in the hospital, it can often be very tricky to get them to eat properly. The term “anorexia” means that an animal is inappetent, uninterested in food, and has stopped eating. It is very important to keep the calories up in a sick patient since this is the time they need them the most. Nutritionists have calculated formulas for energy requirements for different sized animals that are healthy.

Favorite snacks besides Abbey's regular food. Abbey loves plain Cheerios, slices of potatoes, unsalted crackers, mini carrots, loves popcorn(goes wild over any snack that sometimes is not for her).
Abbey is completely litter box trained. She loves to sleep on the sofa, with the comforter over her, and in our bed if given the chance(which seems to be a lot lately). Abbey also understands certain commmands, such as "No" and "Sit", and just recently learned how to stand up and beg on her hind legs.
Abbey has two sounds that she makes. One is barking like a dog when she chases her owners around the house. The other is squacking like a chicken when someone goes into the kitchen. <<<---For she thinks that we eat non-stop, or she thinks that we are getting food for her all the time.
Abbey also has her favorite chew toys. She love to chew on an old shoe (where she is the teething stage). She loves to chew on her dental chew toys and play with her new ball (which she loves to nose around the floor).
She is now 3 years old (October 28, 2006).
On September 2, 2004...Abbey went for her first visit to the Veternarian. To our surprise, she was very calm, except when the Vet had to trim her hooves, for which she was not a big fan of, but she made it through. Abbey was also given her De-worming medication for the year, so tricking her to take it will be a challenge. All in all,,,Abbey had a very productive and calming first trip to the Vet.
Abbey does not like being left alone, for when either one of us has to go out, she will bite on our shoes until we leave. And when we come home, she will grunt as if to say "About time you both got home, now get into clothes that I recognize you in.
As Abbey keeps growing and gets older, we will update her progress as the events in her life happen.
