The Bear is at the vet for his second heartworm injection.
He has gained sixteen pounds!! Damn Prednisone! At least it is healthy weight and not junk food/treat weight. But we will be cutting back on his breakfast and dinner for sure, especially since he can't exercise until a month after the shots are all done.
Hang in there... each day is a day nearer being WELL.
The Pred is nasty stuff.. but right now.. its needed.
Just do what you are doing.. keep the meals tightly sized... add green beans if you want to bulk without adding weight.
You will be able to work it off him when the heartworm treatment is done with.
Hang on.... you are winning....!
You are very very right, Flicka! I've been on Prednisone myself and it makes my appetite go wayyyy up!! We will be cutting down the amount of food in his meals even more, he eats green beans now and loves them! And after walkies he only gets one small treat.
His last injection in tomorrow! Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers
