Jane, do you use pumpkin just when there is a problem with the stools?Pumpkin can be used for loose stools and constipation. Works great for both.
Thank you, Eileen. :tender: Both Snowball and I had a great day. Snowball is eating well, playing, and is so much better. He will be on meds for another two weeks. I am keeping an eye on the licking that seems to happen close to when it is time for his meals. I think it's the acid building up in his tummy ... so, we are giving him smaller meals three times a day for now. We might have to add in another smaller meal.How are you and Snowball feeling today...hopefully both of you got some good rest
Thank you so much, Lynn, for taking time to share your thoughts about my aunt. I am so grateful that some of you are sharing your thoughts and experiences about this. I really take it to heart, and especially with Snowball having been sick. It's hard to explain, but, I do worry about losing Snowball. And, I am very protective of him ... and, feel the need to defend him. He is such a wonderful and loving dog. And, because I was so close to my aunt, I felt, or feel, as though I am losing her. But, your words have helped me put things more into perspective. Thank you, again, Lynn. :tender:Marie -- I'm so happy that Snowball seems to be better and that he's making his poopies.
Just a word about your Aunt. Many people, when they get older, become irrational in ways we never expected. They become judgemental, cranky, demanding and unreasonable. I know so many friends that have been hurt by older (old) relatives who they were close too. It sometimes seems that older people sometimes get mean spirtied. I doubt that they even realize it -- it just happens for some unknown reason.
My mother was a saint throughout her life. She was always upbeat even thought she had a very hard life. But as she aged, she became extremely impatient. I saw my own mother act in ways I know she never meant to. She would have been so embarrassed if she had realized how she sounded.
Please don't be too hurt by your Aunt. And try to remember how she was when she was younger.
So, Janine, do you recommend a little pumpkin daily, or just when our babies are having stool problems?Jayne pumpkin works both ways !
Thank you, sweet Paula. :tender:Yes, Snowball is a lot better. Still on meds for two more weeks, but, so far, he seems to be handling them a lot better than I expected. And, yes, I am getting some rest.Marie just checkin in to see how Snowball is doing, I pray he is back to his old self soon. I do hope your getting rest. Love you
