How long til he eats???? :-(
Pyka had a vet checkup yesterday morning. Poor mom is getting tired...she is feeding him 5 - 6 times a day, working up to 1 1/4 cans by next week.
He was put on a new Morphine patch, so he is subdued, but of course lethargic and not having a lot of appetite.
We fed him 1/3 can (5 parts food to 1 part water) yesterday noon and the same last night...and he threw up the food last night, so we are trying smaller meals more often.
Vet says most of the healing will be done in another week. He is sneezing MUCH less, and there is less blood all the time.
But I don't know how soon he will eat on his own...Mom doesn't either. What do I tell her?
Any ideas, folks? Maybe once this last morphine bit wears off, he will perk up and eat on his own - even hand fed? He's so bony...but can still move around and jump to his favourite spots.
