This is what everyone got today. In the bulky mix, corn, beans, peas, and carrot, boiled and cooled. In the fine mix, carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, golden beets, and orange bell pepper. Fruit consists of strawberries, kiwi, orange, Fuji apple, banana, and blackberries. Sprinkled with high potency pellets from Harrison's, and our girls got millet balls shoved into the new ish fruits to entice them in.

The feast looks lovely and I'm sure Buddy appreciates all the love and affection you give him.

Prayers and positive energy.

Hi Kristen
So sorry to hear that Buddy is ill. Thatís a very lovingly prepared banquet for them.

Just a note of hope for you: My dog died with heart failure a few years ago, but once she was diagnosed and started taking diuretics (which Lasix is) she improved greatly, and appeared very well for another 12 months before eventually deteriorating again and having to add other drugs. Heart failure is a degenerative condition, but the medication may make a significant difference.
Hopes and prayers for signs of improvement.

Kristen,

Just another word of encouragement here I sincerely hope that your vet can extend Buddy’s life, while maintaining a reasonably good quality of life. As Julia mentioned, it can happen. He has all he needs and more at home, with the best foods, care, and love.

Thank you so much! I think it took me about 3 hours total to chop and cut and cook everything. For more of the veggies I used my food chopper, cooked the bulky frozen veggies, and hand cut all the fruit, including scoring the blackberries. It took a while, and I was done quite late because of everything that has gone on and we had to go out and buy everything new while Buddy got his first meal of the day after 6pm! Friday was quite stressful for him and I think he was a little hangry by the end of his trip. It all worked out though.

Thanks Lyn! He is doing a bit better today, I think thanks to the diuretic. It seems to have made his breathing considerably easier and less uncomfortable. The vet said that his heart was failing, either one side or both. Possibly the liver also, so we have been adding milk thistle to the boys' water every other day.

It was actually kinda funny to see everyone's reactions to their very full, very heavy bowls, . I'm not sure that they knew what to do with most of it, haha. Both cages seemed to be quite happy with it all. And Buddy seems far happier now that he's reunited with Perry.

That definitely makes me feel better. I am certainly hoping to at least get more time with him, provided his quality of life is good. I won't let him suffer. While it's no fun being sick, I won't let him be lame and continue to exist in such a condition. I love him too much to see that happen.

He definitely send to be feeling a little better today. He did catch a nap mid day today, which kinda freaked Lonny out. I told him that everything Buddy does right now is going to take a bigger toll on him because of his condition. He's going to get more tired more quickly. Lonny understands and said that it's just going to take a hot minute to get used to. Which is understandable. I think I get there quicker because I'm the medicator, and have a direct contact with the illness.

You got that right! Lonny's so sad about his diagnosis, as am I. I feel horrible for Buddy, because I know this can't be cured, but at least we can manage it, and hopefully get a lot more time with him.


I also want to thank everyone for your kind words and prayers during this time. I am happy that we have this positive light in some often times dark situations.

Kristen

Prayers for buddy's improvement with the diuretic. I had a dog once with similar issues and Lasix extended his life 2 year's...
