Good Afternoon and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I ma so sorry that your sweet little Jake is having so many problems. This odd behavior may be due to the disease or it may be due to possible dementia...it is hard to know. This disease, as it progresses, does cause lack of appetite and this behavior may be part of that. The only thing you can do for your little guy is , if he does not eat, give him Nutrical, a dose every 4 hrs until his next meal to be sure that he gets the nutrients that he needs. This can be purchased at the pet store. I would recommend that you have your vet rerun his kidney enzymes to see if the disease has progressed.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you. Sincerely, ***** *****
Good for you...this disease can change in an instant...I really hope that I am wrong and sweet Jake is only doing odd behavior because of mild dementia.
