Hi, thank you all so much for the replies & advice. I'm sorry I haven't posted an update sooner. I had already started Bella on the hamburger and rice (93% lean, boiled and drained). I did ask my vet about the chicken but she said to stick with one protein source and I had already fed her the other. Bella's bowel movements have definitely improved ~ she is still going quite often (4-5x a day) but it is formed now, though still too soft and don't look 'normal'. The new concern I have is a symptom that started today and I have never seen before in any animal ~ her rib cage started contracting and expanding really strange. I just got home from work and I called my husband (he works opposite shifts so he was here with her this morning/afternoon) and he said he saw her do it then, too. What the heck is that???
My vet is closed today but they are open tomorrow. If she starts acting weird I'll bring her to the ER tonight. She seems a little more active today and she definitely still has her appetite, but she's SO skinny and the rib cage thing is freaking me out. Any ideas? PS To answer one question asked, I don't have copies of her bloodwork but I will ask for it when I go back to the vet and let you all know the actual #'s. Thank you again!!
