Frankie went to vet yesterday for his 2 week checkup after being diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. Progress report was very encouraging. Dr. said his heart sounds very clear and to continue with the Lasix and Enalapril program which he will continue to take for the rest of his life.
He also lost almost 1/2 lb. in 2 weeks!!!! We have been on a strict diet as he needs to lose almost 3 lbs. Dr. loves the Ziwipeak but she feels that he is not "active" enough to burn those calories in order to lose weight. Morning meal is Lean Blue Buffalo chicken and evening meal is still ZP but less than 1/2 scoop. We are trying to keep calories, fat and sodium down. Dr. gave us some Chicken Chips, made in USA, only ingredient is chicken and he can have 2-3 per day as a treat as they are only 2 calories. He won't touch carrots or green beans, these would make a nice lean treat. I keep trying though.
Frankie's LP surgery has been postponed until after the first of the year. All in all his report was very good!!
