Da Pogi's Mamu gave us a puppy dog for a housewarming present. She's a pitbull/terrier mix (di ba nga pitbull mix na, dinagdagan pa ng terrier. ASKAL na talaga). We named her Bambam.
Bambam has been with us for a week. She has not been eating well. We took her to the vet 2x already and her weight has slowly declined. She was at 2 kilos last week, yesterday her weight was at 1.7 na lang. For a puppy her size, that 0.3k was a big deal. We can already see her ribs because she's really losing weight.
She was diagnosed with Gastro Hemmorhagic Enteritis by the vet. She was given antibiotics and is still on antibiotics. However, she's not really improving. Granted, she has been walking around more than during her first 2 days with us, but it's really worrying me that she's not eating.
We have tried bottle feeding her milk. We know she likes Alpo Beef and Liver for puppies. But she only licks the sauce and does not eat the chunks of meat. Her vet prescribed her with breeder's choice for puppies but she doesn't like them. I've even asked Yaya Joy to soak the pellets and mash them just so she will eat them. She needs to eat a minimum of 50grams a day but she's not eating.
Bambam is my first pet. EVER. When I was young, we had a puppy, but when that puppy died (after a week), my parents did not replace him. I don't have any memories of that puppy.
Bambam is slowly losing her strength. As in yesterday, naglalakad syang parang lasing, pasuray suray. And I'm at my wits end as to how to make her eat.
