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.

Sammy was part of a litter of 3 rats that were born to what we thought


was a male rat and turned out to be a female.  Even though we added


3 more rats to the 3 we already had we enjoyed everyday with them


and to see them from birth is something we will never forget.  He was


gone so suddenly and we can only hope he is frolicking up above with


Patrick and Francis
