Sick Dogs and Cats that won’t Eat – Pet Tip 252

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.

Peeps was always the small one of the litter of gerbils.  We called her peep peep because thats what she did when she was born.  All she did was sit and make little peeping noises, we almost lost her when she was weaned because she wouldnt eat. 


As she got older she became a bit of a pushy gerbil always elbowing the other gerbils out of the way, because of her small size she seemed to get away with it as well.  We even had to seperate her from some of the gerbils eventually we put her with two of her sisters who she seemed to get on with the best.  Peep peep never grew very big and always looked frail but even so she could hold her own. 


We found her today on the bottom of the cage with the sisters she loved around her and I would like to think she was looked after by them as she passed on. 


The pain right now is very real and I and Richard miss her very much but she has gone to be with her step sister Sweetpea and they are together beating up the angels discussing which angels wing to attack next.


Peep peep will always be in our hearts


Joy and Richard
