The topic: What I learned last week.
Nutrical is not something that more is better.
I found out DeeJay really likes it. So, I gave him some Thursday evening. I gave him some Friday morning. And again, Friday night. It's good for him, right? It's a diet supplement and he's so very thin, it can't hurt. Right?
Wrong. Oh, my God, so wrong, wrong, wrong. The poor guy had the bad runs all day yesterday. They started Friday night. He wouldn't eat for me yesterday morning so when Brian gassed up the car yesterday morning on our way to breakfast, I went into the nearby Vons and bought nine jars of baby food. When we got home, I gave Deej some chicken and he lapped up about a quarter of what was there and got tired of it. During the day I tried it some more and he ended up eating almost that entire jar, plus part of a jar of beef.
He also ate his treats when I gave him his fluids early yesterday afternoon.
When I was getting the condiments ready for dinner, he was in the kitchen begging for food. When I refilled the food dispenser in the dining room, he ate dry food.
So, I think he's feeling better. He ate some baby food this morning and lapped at the water I put on the dry. He's sleeping now.
I guess that Nutrical also acts as a laxative. And that's not good with him because he has no colon. *sigh* I'll give him some every three days or so and not a lot. He does like it. But too much of a good thing is a bad thing. I can swear to that.
