Feed the Dog — Six Word Saturday —
my Six Words:
Katrin is on pills now. In the morning on an empty stomach she takes one Denamarin coated in peanut butter.
Then at noon and at bedtime, around midnight, she takes a Ursodiol pill, again with peanut butter.
She likes the pills. If one accidentally drops on the floor she will scarf it up.
Both pills are for a liver condition and are used to stimulate the organ.
The Ursodiol pills are compounded specially for her prescription and encapsulated by the local pharmacy (link).
One day at noon, instead of putting her evening pill in with my own night time pills, I ate Katrin's Ursodiol
Above is her evening meal. Both noon and bedtime meals are baked or boiled chicken thighs and frozen green peas cooked for Katrin. To this I add 1/3 of a Vienna sausage and a little over 1/2 ounce of finely chopped croutons. Her noon meal is two ounces of chicken and 1 1/2 ounces of peas.
If she will eat it I feed her some Purina "Moist & Meaty -- Rise & Shine -- Awaken Bacon and Egg Flavor" dog food for breakfast. We have her weighed every month when she gets her arthritis shot. So far she has weighed 12.2 consistently, down from 14.4 before she became ill. Any changes will result in more or less food. She does get a few snacks, a huge spoonful of Greek Yogurt at bedtime, and some pieces of a granola bar along with a tiny scrap bite when we clean our plates at the sink.
