This thread is also known as Eve's dastardly and cunning plan!!!
It seems from the recent rash of threads posted about varying difficulties with our dogs going off their food, being fussy and generally not eating, that quite a few of us have non eating dogs - and as you may know Bramble is now 10 months old and has never eaten properly...
I think it is safe to say that all of us have been following intently the terrible traumas associated with Jades whelping, one thing that caught my eye was the point where Jade stopped eating and things that Di had done to try to persuade her to eat - something that all of us who have had to contend with a dog that does not want to eat can readily empathise with.
And Jules' reply and suggestion...really made me think - about Bramble - as you know I am always on the look out for any suggestions that may help me to get him to eat properly... Jules said
At that my ears pricked up - improve appetite? Off I went to have a look... the website said...
Sorb Vit B is also wonderful for geriatrics and general debility, weight loss, shy and nervous dogs etc.
I thought it sounded promising - very promising - so ordered some....that was yesterday - it arrived this morning (hows that for service?!) too late for breakfast unfortunately BUT the blurb on the packet said
A rapid tonic for weight gain, PICKY ANIMALS...
I now have high hopes! Very high hopes!!!! Of course everything else I ahve tried has failed and there is nothing to say that this will work any better - but nothing ventured...
I thought I would share this so if anyone else wants to give it a go and see whether it helps their dog - I know how desperate I get so if this does help or gives someone the chance of trying something - its worth it
And of course a great big thank you to Jules who brought this to my attention in the first place!!! I shall be so thrilled and delighted if it works...
Bramble has been eating now for a couple of days - with persuasion and he is looking better - even though I over fed him the other day and gave him the runs...
Here is Bramble on 13 Sept - as you can see looking very thin
Here is he on 25th Sept - photo is blurry but I think you can see that he is looking better
And one tonight as a starter for this new regime...well until he turns his nose up! :roll: :roll: :roll:
I think he now looks significantly better thin but better - but we have been here before and then he refuses to eat - so first dose of tonic tonight....fingers crossed!
Hope this is of some help to someone!
Eve Neo and the soon to be porky Bramble
