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.

Nickers was a very delightful cat who showed up at our door 3 years ago.  We  took


him in and have looked after him ever since.  I still can't believe when I took him to


the vet 1 week ago today with what I thought was a tooth problem, that turned out to


be so much worse and that he would be gone so quickly.  We will always think of him


fondly and appreciate the time we had with him, but the whole family will miss him


greatly.
