I want to thank everyone for responding and for all of the suggestions. I feel like there
may have been some miscommunication on my part that I would like to clarify, if I can.
When I used the word "stable" I put it in quotes to signify that this has been her regular
daily pattern. I am not intending to mean that I think this is to be considered medically,
biologically or metabolically stable. I realize it is not good and that is why I have come to
this forum.

As I mentioned before I feed Fiona a frozen raw food diet from Nature's Variety and please
feel free to go to their web site for a full list of the quality ingredients they include. I am
changing to feed her much more frequently.

I also hope that I did not convey that Fiona is having multiple seizures throughout the day.
She has some episodes of going into the stupors throughout the day. Again, I do not
think that is ok and I am working to determine the best course of treatment for her. She
had two seizures in March and was under the care of a vet. Please remember that the last
vet I took her to did not discuss surgery or meds for her. He told me that these tumors
metastasize greatly throughout the body. He also told me that he considered her
untreatable because she did not respond greatly to two homeopathic remedies. It was
because I did not want to give up that I found my way to this site.

Regarding Fiona not eating, it is difficult to explain. She has a wonderful appetite and I
have had both vets observe her attempting to eat and they both thought it was unusual
and strange. She can easily get to her bowl but when she is in front of the food she cranes
her head back and starts licking the air. It's like she has forgotten how to put the food in
her mouth. This is why I hand feed her. The vets did not think it was due to any
weakness. When I worked for each of these vets Fiona went to work with me every single
day so that I could always have an eye on her. I hope this is all more clear and I appreciate
your desires to help me.
