You may know (from our monthly updates) that we brought 2 puppies home with us in January! The one little one (Mocha) was my pick. She was the runt of the litter, but also one of the cutest? Not to mention the sweetest. She is so mild-mannered and obedient. A few weeks ago while we were gone, she got into the remains of an animal she found up on the mountain behind our house. My sister-in-law took Mocha to the vet after they found her up in the woods, very very sick. She got an IV, and several medications to take at home. She’s finally done with all of that, but still seems pretty ill to me. She is hardly eating anything (unless I give her straight ground beef from the store… expensive!!!) and is super skinny. Part of me wants to take her back to the vet, but I know we can’t afford that. So I’m looking into what kind of diet would help her at this point. Google suggests a raw meat diet, or canned puppy food. Hmmm.
I know this is a random post. I’m just a little worried about Mocha and wondering if anyone has ideas for me? We’ve never had dogs before, so this is a learning experience.
