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.

Chip is a big fat heroic matchmaking dog. We fell in love at first sight, but I already had a beautiful Sheltie named DJ. Chip was determined to become part of my family.

One summer day, while dog-sitting Chip, he tried to save my life while I was swimming at the waterfalls and almost drowned during the attempt.

Later that summer, while my dog DJ and I were leaving, he decided to make a run for it. I was calling DJ and suddenly I heard the clicking of heels running across the kitchen linoleum, down the deck, around the fence, finally landing with a thud in the passenger seat of my car. The owners said "take him for a sleepover" and that was that.

A short while later I moved to a farm. During one of our walks Chip bolted after a cat onto farm property. Petrified he'd get shot I ran after him and almost knocked over the cat's owner, a lovely man named John, who I later married. I can't thank Chip enough.
