As James's nanna I am very pleased to announce that he has put 2 kilos on the past 10 days due no doubt to plentiful amounts of chicken and rice, mashed potatoes with sardines (his absolute favourite)and lots of healthy treats that his Mum has been feeding him. He has roached and done his special yip as well this week so keeping fingers crossed that the improvement continues.
Update I had a call from Jane earlier this evening to say that James's blood test results had just been phoned through by the Vet. It is, sadly, not good news. James's liver function and cholesterol levels suggest that all is not well. The vet said that had James been a younger dog (James is 14) he would have suggested investigations but, due to this lovely King's age and general health, it has been decided not to put His Royalness through the stresses involved. Jane will keep James happy and comfortable and allow him to live out his remaining time roaching and yipping.
All 'stay happy and yipping' vibes for James from all here at String Bean Manor, along with the hugest hugs to Jane who having so recently lost Henry now faces the prospect of losing James too. Inevitable in taking on two oldies but nonetheless heartbreaking
