Hi I have a 14 year old Chihuahua. He was diagnosed with CHF an enlarged heart on on one side. He has been on Lasix, Enalapril and Pepcid AC for 2 years + and his vet added Vedmedin and Spironolactone about a year ago. This past Feb. she added Cerenia and Mirtazapine. In the last year he has gone through 3 episodes of not eating and I took him in every day for 4-5 days to get fluids and the cerenia shot. This really takes a lot out of him. He sleeps a lot now and is not eating well again. He is tired a lot. He is losing weight and getting weaker. Some days he is irritable. He still has good days and enjoys being outside on the porch so it is not yet time to put him to sleep. The vet told me a few different foods I can give him when he doesn't eat his can food. White rice. chicken, peas, yogurt, cottage cheese, pasta, ground beef, pasta, salmon, tuna no salt added tomatoes made into a sauce. He needs to have the meat boiled but he doesn't eat this any more. I hate to take him in for the shot because he is just so weak and tired. It takes a lot out of him. Yesterday he was not eating anything. So I grilled a piece of steak and rinsed it off after wards. He did eat this. He eats a food for awhile and then he will not eat it anymore. This morning he ate a little of his science diet can food. I am tempted to give him grilled steak again but I am afraid this will upset his stomach this time. I really don't know what else to give him. I don't think we will have him too much longer. If he gets too thin and weak I will put him tom sleep. I will do it even though it will be hard to and I do not want to. I will make myself do it if he is starving. I think I will be able to tell because I have done this before with animals that had cancer. I want to make his last days with us nice for him. That is one reason why I want to give the grilled steak and maybe grilled chicken. But if I can get him to eat something else it is ok for him to have I would love to give it to him. So my question is what else can I give him to eat that is safe? What else can I do to make his last days loving and easy, comfortable? I am giving him a lot of attention and love, I am home with him all day so he is not by himself and I keep him close to me, but is there something else I can do or give him that I don't? Or anything I can cook for him or buy for him or do for him? Any thing anyone can tell me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
