    Thanks for asking Sharon.

    He seems to be doing better now that I stopped giving him soft food and only giving him kibble Fromms Ocean Fish with a bit of sour dough bread thrown in. He loves it and takes his pills with it. I still can't give him more than 1/3 cup per feeding or he will just throw it up!

    I feed him 4x a day! He got a good brushing and peticure yesterday so he felt pampered! He is just not very active... but, I guess that is to be expected. He still feels good enough to bark and wake me up in the morning!

    FullSizeRender.jpg Thought I would post a picture of Laddie in the garden today. He has been eating 4 meals for 3 days in a row and keeping it down!
    He even looks like he feels better!

    He does look good Gloria! What a soft sweet expression this old gentleman has. So glad he has rallied, with your good care.

    I have not been on for a long time and just saw this long thread today. Casey sends crossed paws and I send prayers and good thoughts for both you and Laddie, Gloria. He is such a lovely gentle soul - it shines from his picture.

    Thanks, Pam!

    He is holding his own...
    Finally got a combination of foods he can digest without regurgitating! The Fromms Ocean Fish kibble and Science Diet ID canned. The Science Diet Fat content is rated at 14 (I try to keep under 10 since he also has Pancreatitis) but at this point, I need him to keep the food down! His stools are no longer liquid and runny thank goodness.

    His daily steroids are helping too as it helps him to drink more!
