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.

Goldie picked me when I was walking between the cages at the pound. She reached out and grabbed my arm as I passed her cage.  She always took care of me. She groomed my hair and made me go to bed when I stayed up late. Each night she slept curled up beside my head.

Several times she escaped death and each time she bounced back.

Goldie was a real fighter until the last. I finally had to have her put to sleep when we discovered that she had pancreatic cancer and was weak and sick. 

I buried her on the hill above the house on our place in Swan Valley, Idaho overlooking the Snake River.

Goldie, you are my best friend and will always be in my heart. If you aren't in heaven, then I'm not going. I want to go where you are.
