Thanks so much Pat. You are always so very helpful. I feel much better about giving Dori the pills now. I need to do some research on how I am going to get her to take them now
As far as her food, this is what she gets every day:
6am- She gets 1.5 oz of Merrick wet food
After she gets the wet food I put about 3/4 cup of Innova light in her dry food bowl. But at the end of the night there is still about half that in her bowl. She never finishes it.
When I am walking out the door to leave for work she gets 5 or 6 pieces of the regular Innova as a trea. I switched to this since I still had some regular formula left and it was a way of still giving her something but breaking her from the Friskies. Do you think the Innova light would be as effective, would she still feel it's a "treat"?
That is all she gets. I just can't figure it out. WIth the steroid being an appetite stimulant, how in the world am I going to get her to lose weight? He put special instructions on the sheet they gave me when I left saying that it is important I get her weight under control, and I am really trying
Edited to add: Keeping a journal of what she eats is a good idea, I am going to try that and maybe I will come up with something.
