Stasia and I went back to the vet today. She has been eating less and less since last week when she saw him and lay sprawled out on the floor wherever she was. She ate the fiber okay, when she was eating at all. Yesterday she ate about a teaspoon of yogurt and less than a tablespoon of cooked chicken. I’ve tried everything I know that might tempt her.
We did blood tests today. The skin around her ears and the whites of her eyes are a little yellowish. And her liver is failing. The vet gave her a shot to stimulate her appetite and some pills which, if we’ve caught it early, may buy her a little time. All we can do is try to get her to eat – and she did eat her dinner well when we got home – and see if the pills help. Just age, he thinks. She’ll be 14 in a few weeks.
