Bengbeng wants to know how my son is doing. 😀
Well, he’s doing GREAT! He’s back to his own self. He looks cheery and his spirit is back. 100% full of energy! His legs are strong again. No more helping him up. I still need to feed him his medicine and tend to his hematoma ear. And every night I need to squeeze that particular ear to remove excess blood. The blood ar they’re not dark red. They’re watery type.
FeR, do you have to do that after Brinkley’s hematoma surgery?
After Chester had his surgery, I fed him milk together with his breakfast & dinner meals. Comfy food ma. Later on when I remove his favorite milk, he became a choosy eater. The food (kibbles) that he loves so much suddenly taste like vomit. He can even act it out for me!
Here’s a scenario that actually happened.
Me: Chester, come eat your food…x 5times!!! (begging)
Chester walks slowly to his plate, doubting… thinking…
Me: Chester, come eat your food…x 5times!!! (begging again)
He put a few kibbles into his mouth and spit it out. At the same time showing me his disgusted face… showing his tongue as in saying YUCK!!! This goes on a few times.
Then I resorted to feed him with my hand. He takes it and spit out again.
Ishh isshh… I leave him alone. Thinking that he will eventually eat it when he feels hungry.
But NO!!! 7 hours later he’s still not touching his food.
Eventually I gave up. I give him his milk. And happily he finished his breakfast at 3pm!!!
So his mind game works.
I actually think he’s very smart. A smart spoiled dog to be precised!
Ahem… actually ar I only did that because I need to feed him his medicine.
Next time? Sorry Chester, you will not win.
Right now, I give him warm water instead of milk plus a piece of cracker/a slice of bread with his kibbles.
Actually eh we have experienced this situation a couple of times before -> Him not eating his food. Sometimes I win and sometimes I will need to buy a different brand of kibbles for him (me lose). I don’t want to give him milk for a long period of time because dogs are not suppose to drink milk (lactose intolerant). That’s why this couple of days I keep hearing his fart and he has developed watery stools.
