Lizzy.....

It's been a very stressful couple of weeks......hence the non posting. A week and a half ago I noticed that Lizzy looked like she was losing weight, she was eating enough but I changed up her menu a bit to give her some more food. No change so I started following her when she went out to do her business and noticed that starting last week it looked like it wasn't processing at all. I had to go out with the scoop to pick it up immediately because the other dogs thought it was food and it smelled like food. Took her to the vet Monday........turns out she can't process anything because her pancreas is not producing enzymes.....she is in fact starving to death. When I first noticed these problems a few months ago she was 52 lbs. now she is 35 lbs. We put her on enzymes 3 or 4 days ago, but so far no change. I'm going to call the vet tomorrow to see how long it takes....I was hoping it would already be working. The next step....well I think you know what that is.....there is none. I'm trying to be very optimistic.....I never cry or get negative in front of her or the other dogs. But things are not happy here..................



The positive is that she's not in any pain and is still playing with everyone and seems happy.............
