My parents spent nearly $1,000 on testing and medicine, just to find out that she has a sensitive stomach. She's eating BilJak Sensitive Solutions, but it doesn't work. We've tried many others that also don't work. It seems that she's been doing very badly lately. She vomits at least three times during the night, sometimes she'll vomit multiple times throughout the day. We don't know what to do. It's no way for an animal to live, but I have no idea what else we can do?? Just experiment with more foods? Is it cruel of me to consider Euthanasia?
Please help.
I agree that its no way for an animal to live but I don't think its worth Euthanizing her for. If her stomach is sensitive it can be fixed or managed.
