Feeding time...



Is it sad that is takes longer to prepare the dog's breakfast than my own? At Breakfast and Dinner this is what my counter looks like. And a couple inbetween Meds for Jane too.

It costs about $11 a day to keep Jane's ticker-ticking, and well, she is still doing great. She has gained back a little of the initial weight and muscle she lost - which she couldn't really afford to lose. Her new Cardiac food is working really well for her too to maintain her weight. She is also on a couple natural supplements CoQ10 and a liquid herbal remedy, that compliment rest of the shwack of meds. It's been 4 months since her diagnosis and we are thrilled she is still going strong.

Gyp is also an a few things for her Rehab and some permanently - 3 Chinese Herb variations, Ligaplex, and a new mobility/joint supplement and Robaxin which was just prescribed for her.

Kaleb is on a couple joint supplements and gets a bit of extra oil added to his food occasionally to help with his dryness. Nothing too fancy for the Iron Dog.

And me - well I take my happy pills, multi-vitamin and a giant horse pill of a joint supplement.

Hopefully with all this stuff .... we all live to be 150 years old - in human and dog years :)

Ha! I'm there with you. Toby was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism and is on 2 pills a day for that, plus glucosomine and fish oil. Not as bad as Jane--it's great she is doing so well!!

Yep, that's a lot! But those natural supplements truly do work wonders. :)
