Maggie Update 3

Maggie came home wednesday.

We all are very excited!

She is dead tired, I imagine she did not sleep well since saturday night when we took her to the e-vet.

Lance was so excited when Maggie came in the door, but he was so gentle with her. And now he is just laying with her and cuddeling.

She has 3 meds for now (1 antibotic for her mouth, 1 antibiotic for her stomach and tramadol as needed)

She actually ate a little bit of food. A nice sized teaspoon of chicken and some pumpkin, I was so excited I teared up. First time she actually ate food in over a week.

The biopsy results will be available Friday, MSU said they would call.

They want me to switch Maggie to a presciption diet, Hills z/d. Not happy about that, Hills isn't exactly my favorite brand. They also said not one piece of food that isn't Hills z/d should ever pass her mouth again, going to do some research about IBD in dogs because I can't believe she can never have a piece of fruit or a veggie ever again. But for now they said give her whatever she will eat, just to get her eating.
