Ellimaybel Poor Gunther He didn't get to go out and play today so we had to only play inside which wasn't much of a workout for him. I'm not mean, I'm protective. We had massive storms and wind today, with gusts up to at least 50 mph. The lake destroyed the beach, it's closed for who knows how long. The yard was full of branches, our flag pole (the mounted kind) got bent in the wind. Neither dog was outside longer than 3 minutes, completely supervised today. I didn't want to risk anything happening to them. So we did what we could inside for them and spent the day cuddled up under blankets on the couch watching movies.

wyoung2153 Don't know what a suet cake is... but maybe it just made his tummy funny so he didn't want to eat. Titan does that sometimes.. just decides it's not eating time. Hope he eats his other meals

Ellimaybel Gunther really freaked me out a little today. His meals due to EPI are broken up throughout the day. So he ate his first meal of 2 cups this morning, then another cup a couple of hours later. We went outside and played for about an hour total throughout the day, and came back in. While scooping his poop I noticed that a squirrel must have gotten the suet cake out of the holder and Gunther ate it. I wasn't concerned, that can't really hurt him. Before I left for work I prepared his 3rd meal of one cup of food and gave it to him after 20 minutes of incubation. He didn't touch it. I got home from work over 5 hours later, food was still in the bowl. I switched it out to the 2 cup bowl for his dinner. Didn't touch it. I poured gravy over it, didn't touch it. Added warm water to it to heat it, didn't touch it. I finally got him to eat it by adding in some white meat from the baked chicken I cooked. I really don't know why he didn't touch that food for so long, all his behavior and everything else was normal. Maybe the high fat content in the suet cake filled him up.

Ellimaybel Today Gunther is all cuddles and play. Our favorite thing is when we give him hugs and snuggles and he rolls around and does the "rawr rawr rawr" sound in protest. Then we let go and he sits up, barks, and grabs our hand to pull us back to him. This goes on for a while until he gets tired of the game or until we get tired of being pulled around. He acts like he doesn't like it but there are no growls, only mumbles and noises. Then he starts licking us to death.

Ellimaybel This was so funny I just had to share it. I wish I had it on video. I'm watching The Simpsons marathon and a commercial comes on with Ned Flanders head on human bodies. It made me start laughing hysterically. Gunther looked at me like "huh"? So I pointed at the t.v. since I was too busy laughing to explain. He was next to me on the couch and started watching the commercial. His ears were kind of sideways and his head was drawn back like "WTF"? It all made me laugh even harder.

Ellimaybel
Feeling SO optimistic!

Ok, here goes. The first enzymes cost me $20 plus shipping and only lasted a week, at way under the recommended dose per meal. Then when I got his antibiotics, we ran out of enzymes for 1 1/2 days. Today the enzyme powder from Enzyme Diane came. Cost me $70 with shipping included. Will last at least 180 meals. I haven't scooped the yard in a few days (gross I know) to be able to compare stools over the past days. All of his stools of recent have been brown, solid, chunks. I checked the fiber content of both his kibble and wet food and as long as I feed the wet in morning and night with the antibiotic, and straight moist kibble throughout the day (treated of course) his diet will be right on track. Now just to get his weight back up! Thank you all for your help and everything you have done to help me diagnose and treat Gunther. I don't want to jinx it, but it seems like we are FINALLY on the right track!

Ellimaybel I think we are getting there. We are on enzymes and antibiotics. Unfortunately I'm out of enzymes until the next shipment arrives in the mail, but shouldn't be too long. As far as me, Gunther tried to break my hand tonight. We were rough housing and he grabbed my hand a little too hard. Totally my fault for riling him up. He didn't break skin but now my hand is a little swollen and hurts bad lol. Nothing is broken, I can move everything just fine. Just definitely squeezed a tendon or bone a little too hard. After it happened I showed him my hand and he licked it, which even that hurt but it's the thought that counts! Defintely going to have to ice my hand at some point tonight lol
