Shoot!! I think by process of elimination, if you keep on plucking away....you have got to hit the source/fix for this eventually. Hopefully, you are at least close to that. Huge hugs to you and a gentle kiss to Ms. Jazzy from Auntie Elvi. Please tell Jazzy that we think she is very special ..just like her mommy.

Hey there MaxaLisa and Jazz— It’s not true, not sweet little Jazz, nope, no way, no how, she’s too cute and adorable. The truth is the guy before her had a “problem” and she didn’t want him to be embarrassed so she covered the area so he wouldn’t take the blame. Yup, that’s the truth, nothing but!! smile Isn't she such a good girl!!!!

LOL, she is something else. I'm still laughing about the marking...maybe you're right MSD, she was doing the other dog a favor!

She is also the only dog that the vet knows that she keeps trying to jump "up" onto the exam table, because she wants to be eye to eye to watch and hear what's going on. And the mountain goat half of her always tells her to go ahead and try to make that jump rofl Yep, huge personality wub

She did really well with the acupuncture.

She seems to have a blockage in her energy right at at the thoracic-lumbar junction, noted by just about everyone that does energy stuff, and she was pretty reactive to the needles. She even let out a little yelp when the needle was being spun about half way through the session.

I had this feeling about her low back, an area called Bi Wei (sp?), but the vet couldn't get a response when she felt around, so figured I was wrong. But she was VERY reactive to the needles, and half way through the session even had the shivers in the back half of her body. That was Max's "spot", he was always very reactive there, so I guess I just learned to look for it. Next time the vet is going to try some large intestine points to better help with digestion, today was just a bit of "getting to know jazz" session....

The vet will be out of town, so we won't go back until next month. Right now she is very relaxed, and hopefully tomorrow morning won't be as traumatic crossedfingers

Hi Lisa, just checking in and reading up on how Miss Jazz is doing and hopefully she is still nice and relaxed from her acupuncture session.

Her acupuncture was great for her. Unfortunately, since school started last week (and started with a few 11 hour daycare days for her), she has been refusing most of her meals.

Thankfully, she was a touch overweight (her thyroid is a bit low), so now she still looks great, and weighs in at a whopping 20 pounds, which shocked me.

I tried zantac in case the marshmallow wasn't working and it was an acid issue, but no go. Guess we'll see what the week brings - I will most likely try to get her in to the IMS and proceed with *something*, though I don't know what that something will be. I have a can of trippett here, and I will try mixing that in tomorrow morning. I've even tried canned food like CA natural. I do have some Duck and oatmeal here, but I'm hesitant to open it and waste it. I'm tempted to address the low cortisol issue, but I need to think carefully about that... I hope that the IMS has some ideas. Digestion overall is stable, not bad, not great.

Might be a good time to try that goat's milk. A little powdered straight from the package to stimulate her appetite, or thaw some of the frozen for her. Pour a little on the food.

I am wondering if she gets nauseous when she is nervous and that is why she doesn't want to eat? Maybe she needs something to settler her stomach first?

I do think that stress is playing a role in not eating. I'm not sure if it's nausea or something related, though I do know that once she is turned off by a smell in her food, it's worse than pulling teeth to get her to eat it again frown

Great minds on the goat milk!! She LOVES it. Because it's a fermented food, I am giving it to her in the evening, with her probiotics. I don't want to give it close to when I'm giving the antibiotics, which limits its use. I've only been giving it for about 4 days (it's the liquid frozen stuff that's been thawed). I only bought a pint, so I need to pick up some more. A couple hours after giving it, before bedtime, I'm trying to make sure I time it so I can give some marshmallow for the tummy inflammation. It was hard to time everything right last week, I hope I get better.

You know, for a dog that hasn't eaten much at all, she seems to still have quite a bit of poop It seems very strange to me. Maybe she was very impacted and that made her feel a bit ill. Parts of her tummy were very hard, she does have motility problems.

I guess we'll see what this week brings.

Yay on the goat's milk.

Buddy is on massive antibiotics right now for a couple of weeks. I have been giving both dogs raw goat milk this week. At the end of the course, I will do it again. Wish I could afford to give it daily, but I cannot.

A quart here is $8.99!

Jazz should be named Puzzle, since you have to try to put so many things together to see what makes her whole. smile

I hope she is better soon and forever!

Puzzle-that's adorable.

Once you and the IMS figure Jazz out, she should really be a case study someplace, in problem solving if nothing else.

Is there a version of satin balls that she would tolerate-just to get some nourishment in? I guess not.

I hope it's a great week for everybody,
MJ
