So, I had a vet appointment for one of the cats today and since Watson is quite well behaved and gets along fine with my worry wart Petey, I decided to bring him with me to get a weight on him. I also scheduled Petey's appointment with the doctor who took care of Watson's wounds. She was excited to see him and amazed that even the lumps and bumps under his skin have almost completely disappeared. She asked to if I minded if I used his pictures as an example on wound care and healing for a talk that she wants to give. We are now 2 months and 5 days out from his attack... I managed to put over 2 pounds of guilt trip weight on this poor little guy. But as of today he's back down to about 20lbs which is where he was when we started. I told the vet I needed to get a weight on him because I wasn't sure if he was actually getting fat, or just fluffy with his fur growing back. And as luck would have it, it's just fur! I was so afraid that he would keep putting weight on, especially after adding the coconut oil to his food. Treats have been green beans, cucumbers, and 1.1 calorie dehydrated fish treats from Honest Kitchen. I followed a bit of this and that as far as what others feed (Mignarda and the hybrid raw, I think Ann and the dehydrated mix) and he now gets a scoop of kibble with 1/2 tsp coconut oil in the morning, and a single serving of Honest Kitchen base mix with a raw chicken thigh (for now, I want to eventually add other meats for variety) with another 1/2 tsp of coconut oil and thanks to I think Trini or maybe Cara- 1 toothpaste schmeared greenie chewie a day. I know 2.5 pounds isn't really a whole lot in the grand scheme of how heavy some animals are, but that was a bit more than 10% of his weight and I really thought he would just keep gaining and gaining and be the portliest sheltie I've ever seen.
