Customer Question
My dog has...

My dog has enlarged lymph nodes in the neck and had a blood test which was fine. He had a biopsy and they said it was suspected lymphoma. He was put on predisone to increase his appetite. He is eating but only wants boiled chicken or boiled meat balls with carrots, pumpkin and brocolli. He will not eat his kibble because I had put the omega 3 oil on it and will not go near it now. Today his night half pill got missed for 3 hours and he began shaking. I immediately gave it to him and some water after he began shaking. I was so scared. Up till then he had gone for a walk and had eaten his supper hungrily. He is still breathing heavily but has calmed down. I feel so bad that somehow the pill was late. He has stopped the tremors. He has a chest x-ray and ultra sound on his stomach next Weds. I started him on canned food today and added some chicken and kibble but he just kicks the kibble out. I love him so much and he is only just turned 8. Any suggestions on food etc. I had been adding a little brown rice an carrots but understand there should be no grains.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

He still likes to go on his walks but I don't take him as far now. Otherwise he is happy to see people and of course is eating and drinking and peeing lots. He is taking probiotics, glucosomine and omega 3 salmon oil. He is a border collie cross. 30.1 kg
