Deshi's mom here:
So, Deshi is supposed to eat the Hill's Science Diet I/D canned food. He hates it and won't eat it. I made rice and chicken broth. He doesn't like that either. I tried giving him Merrick canned Mediterranean Banquet. He licked up a bit of the juice but wouldn't eat it.
He will eat his Innova kibble and not a lot at that. But, that is the only thing he is willing to eat. I know his vet wants him on a bland diet for a few days, but he has already lost weight and I want him to eat something.
I hid his antibiotic in the Merrick canned food - he didn't touch that. I then took that out and put it in a Pill Pocket. He took one little nibble at the Pill Pocket. By this point that antibiotic was so mushed up and gross that I tossed it away. I then took another antibiotic and opened his mouth and put it as far back as it would go. Then I closed him mouth and massaged his throat to make him swallow.
I am going by the vet's today. He wanted me to get a fresh stool sample from Deshi and bring it in. I am going to also ask if it is okay for me to mix in plain yogurt with some kibble and feed him that. I'm bringing back the extra cans of Science Diet.
