That's just not possible anymore and it's not worth putting him through that. It's more important that I keep him eating and that he gets his pain pills twice a day. If he stops eating and I can't get him to eat his pills I just feel like he's going to spiral downward and it'll be over for him. Last week I didn't think he had more than a couple weeks left. About 5 months ago he pretty much stopped walking entirely until I got him to the vet and on some pills/therapy. It's amazing he's still going.Don't let him/her be picky. Put something in front of them, they'll eat it, one day, two day, three days later. Don't worry about it going bad. They'll burry a piece of chicken in the yard and then eat it like 10 days later. Their stomachs are much different than ours.
