Subject: poor prognosis, bud
Message-ID: <>

Hi All,
I brought bud into see the vet about the episode the he had. the doctor reminded me that she gave bud a poor prognosis the last time that he was in. she increased his prenisone and refused to give bud prednisolone. she said that she has done everything possible with bud and that I just need to prepare myself for his passing.

bud is no longer eating as of yesterday, will eat chicken baby food off my finger. will feeding him like this possibly help him to regain some strengh in him and possiably get him back on his kibble? when else can I give him to eat off my finger. I don't even think that he is drinking fluids at this point.

most of the time he sleeps but he does have short periods of time when he will play. he has wasted to skin and bones and its really awful to look at him like this.

is there any hope left for bud? how will I know when its time to let go.

bud, missy, and mom
