Sally is down to her last few weeks. Almost 4 years ago she was given 4-6 months to live and the vet says it is amazing she has lived so long. Her heart fills her entire chest cavity. This is the genetic variety of dilated cardiomyopathy. She is still eating, but getting more selective, so she is starting to lose her appetite, but not quite yet. When she won't eat anymore then it will be time. Her abdomen started filling with fluid this week, so we drained some and put her on a higher dose of lasix yesterday. The majority of the fluid is gone this morning because we went in and out last night while she got rid of it. She feels pretty good this morning. The point of this - I need something that is very very tasty but low sodium and nutritious and high calorie. The vet wants to put her on Science Diet HD which I said OK to, because she is my neighbor, and actually bought a small bag and some cans. But I would rather feed her something else. She can't eat a lot at one time, so I am feeding her multiple small meals a day by hand when she will eat. Her heart is working so hard she needs lots and lots of tasty nutritious calories. Any suggestions or recipes would be appreciated. I can't get enough raw diet down her.
