Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bella?

No.. she's a bull mastiff... her appetite is huge..we've been feeding 5 small meals a day on bland wet food from vet, and started adding her puppy chow in as per vet instructions on day 3 home from hospital. So, her diet yesterday and today was wet bland food with a little regular puppy chow
