Mister Update


Mister is eating--finally. The only thing he will eat is poached, skinless chicken breasts with rice and a little Beechnut stage 1 (no onion salt) strained chicken. The first vet had told me that Mister was anemic, with a hematocrit of 30; the ER vet said no way, Mister's hematocrit was 48. I'm absolutely trusting the ER vet. She also told me to dab peanut butter on the pills, and that's working, too. He receives meds at 9 am, 1 pm, 9 pm, 5 am. All different meds, poor little guy. He's still not himself, but he growled and barked at Mr. Tom today. I'm grateful for all of your prayers. The ER vet said it is a miracle that Mister is here. I am counting blessings.
Hugs,
Gollum & Mister

  1. oh girl...I had no idea any of this was happening to you! I am so sorry!
    Thank goodness you have a good vet that is going to get to the bottom of his problems, and that he is doing better. I have been in your position before, and it is so hard to be helpless...and you just wish that they could tell you themselves what doesn't feel right.
    I wish there was something I could do!

  2. Thanks so much for the update. Miss Lucy wasn't feeling good a couple of weeks ago and the poached chicken breast and rice was the only thing she would eat too.

    I pray that Mister gets stronger every day. It sounds like he's a fighter. Hugs to you both!

  9. Oh, that cute picture of him in his Halloween costume on your header-it will be here again in no time, and I'm sure Mister will be ready to go trick or treating again! I'm so glad he is eating. Sounds like he's being well cared for and is on the mend. laurie

  11. OMGosh, I miss a day or two and I am seeing this for the first time. I am sorry to hear about Mister. I am glad to hear that he is eating and barking and growling that's half the battle. I had a diabetic schnauzer in the past and your chicken recipe was his favorite diet. ~ Robyn

  12. Mister is so adorable. I hope he is feeling better soon. There is nothing like a vet you feel you can trust and it sounds like you have that.

  14. Duchess and I are hoping your little Mister is recovering and feeling stronger by the minute. I can relate to you so much, when Duchess had her masectomy, I was so beside my self with worry, they are so little and fragile. Hugs to you and Mister, if he's eating and growling, it sounds like he will be up and decorating in no time!

  17. Thanks for the update... I was worried about him. Give him whatever he wants to eat, I say. Gaining back his strength is so important. When our dog was sick, the vet insisted we feed her this nasty nutrient-packed food that she hated; we had to force it down in a syringe. Pa gave her a bit of steak... she had no trouble raising her head and scarfing it right up!

    God was gracious even with our pets.

  25. I'm so sorry to hear that Mister has been so ill. I missed your last post. It sounds like he is on the mend. What procedure was he having done that he was under anesthesia? It sounds like the ER doc has you on right track, will keep the little guy in my prayers. Hugs, Kathy

  34. Hello Gollum,

    Back at my own computer after a long trip. So sorry to hear of your close call with little Mister. He is such a cutie, and I can only imagine how very scared you were. Hope is is up to his old tricks soon!! Jan (jjlmnaz)

  35. Michael, I am truly sorry about Mister, but I am sure he is on the mend. It just breaks your heart when they can't tell you what is wrong.

    Hope everyone else is on the mend also. I don't think you need any more illness, etc, right now.

    Purple hugs,
    Barbara
