Have you tried feeding him RAW? Older dogs can improve a lot when fed RAW, plus, it might help with hi appetite!

We don't have a choice on what he eats...he has to eat kangaroo meat, unfortunately.

Re: Bravo New Pictures and Story

Kerry, when my girl was battling DM and was steadily losing weight, our vet suggested we try some baby food. I know Bravo has a specific diet, but if you spoon some baby food on it, maybe it will stimulate his appetite?

Re: Bravo New Pictures and Story

I know what could help: putting some of those special scents in Bravo's food. I bet he would be interested in that. Hugs and kisses for Bravo from the Baltimore crew, especially Jesse who has DM too.

It's a good suggestion but the baby food would have to be made of kangaroo meat. Bravo gets what looks like parvo when he eats anything different. It is horrible. I am using Nutri-Cal on him to up his calorie intake. It is a fight to get the stuff down him though. He hates it!

Big hugs to you Kerry for doing all you do for your boy. Listen well Bravo, you need to eat and take your Nutri-cal, it's good for you. We all send healthy and healing vibes to you big guy. Anything we can do to help out Kerry?

Kerry, I got a toy for Bravo. I want to include some treats for him too. Forgot what he's allergic to, is it beef?

Beef is his worst allergy. He can't even chew on rawhide without getting really sick.
Organic vegetarian treats are ok and he can eat one or two of the Natural Balance duck/potato treats a day. That's about it for treats he can handle.

Re: Bravo Not Doing Well

Just sending [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/23_hug.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/23_hug.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/23_hug.gif[/img] to Bravo - so sad to think of him growing more frail. You have been so good for him and we have all really enjoyed his stories and pictures.

He certainly has all his smarts still - sounds like he did a great job of training you to retrieve! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/18_thumb.gif[/img]
