A few words on Miss Liz......

Well Lizzy is doing ok......but just that. Luckily she is still at the same weight and loves her walks, but last week I noticed a very distressing problem. Big clumps of hair were coming out and I noticed that a lot of the skin on her back was raw. With the lack of nutrients she is now developing bad skin issues. Took her to the vet and we started with some inject able antibiotics so so she doesn't develop a really bad infection that could take her out.

You can see her chest and around her ears are bad now. I am giving her coconut oil and vitamin E on her skin and in her food but I don't know at this point how much it will help.
This is what she looked like just over a month ago.....I'm very sad that this has to happen....but I guess with no nutrients that's expected.
Will update soon.....

    1. She eats chicken and rice...a little bit of kibble and some high quality wet food to mix her meds in. The doc told me to just give her a bit of dry food.
