I'm not sure where I'm supposed to post this thread to, I looked for a board that was for "sick" furkids but didn't see it, so I hope it's ok to post this here. Maggy and I are new here and I'm desperate at the moment. Mags isn't a full chihuahua, she's part chihuahua and part yorkie, I also hope it's ok that we're here in this forum since she isn't full chihuahua. I've got a very heavy heart right now and it's just getting heavier. On Christmas Eve of this year, we had to give our very loved boxer son "Isaiah" back to God. We had him for 10 years and he couldn't be anymore our son if I gave birth to him myself. We lost him to cutaneous lymphomasarcoma, cancer.... We're all heartsick here and trying to deal with the loss of him the best we know how, but it isn't easy by any means. Mags started 3 days ago not wanting to eat normally. I mean, she's eating, but not like she normally does. Normally I feed her twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Isaiah didn't live with my husband and I the last year of his life. Even though he was ours, he chose our son as his best buddy in the world, so when our son married and got a house of his own, we let Isaiah go live with him, but he was here a lot as well. Mags knew him very well but like I said, wasn't attached to Isaiah as we all were, although she did like him. When it came to Isaiahs final days, Bub and our daughter in law came back home with Isaiah, they stayed here with us for a few weeks, Mags seen Isaiah in the shape he was and everything. But now, starting 3 days ago, she's not wanting to eat normally. She's always ate soon as I put her food down to her, she eats it all right then and there and doesn't leave any. I know that animals have bonds wit human and I know they can feel their hurt and pain. Do you think me being so stressed and hurting right now could be the cause of Mags not wanting to eat all her food? I've been trying to get her to eat her food since 10:00 this morning, it's now 3:44 and she still has yet to finish it. I've got karo on hand and did put a fingertip full on her mouth today, I don't want to take any chances on her going hypoglycemic. She's 5 pounds 13 ounces. I've taken her temp the last two days, yesterday it was 100.7 and today it's 101.5 all within normal range. I've checked her mouth to make sure there's no sores in there, I don't see any obvious things. Her gums are nice and pink, she's drinking water, it's just her not wanting to eat right. She'll get a piece of kibble in her mouth, sometimes she'll eat it, other times she'll spit it back out. I feed her Wellness Just For Puppy. Our vet recommended to never switch her to adult dog food because when I tried earlier in her life, it landed her in intensive care with IV's having to be ran, her lil system just couldn't take it. She has a compromised immune system due to horrid conditions she came from as a baby. The first 6 months of her life was spent on meds to get her well. I don't know if I'm just over reacting and scared something will go horribly wrong with her because we just lost Isaiah, or if she's mourning with us or if us being so hurt and upset is affecting her. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Soon as our vet opens on Monday I'm taking her in.
