Another Perry post

I got Perry to take his pills tonight with provolone cheese.
His doses earlier I gave him wrapped in american cheese slices.
Both times he was skeptical of my intentions in feeding him cheese, and tried to chew and spit them out at first, but got them down in the end.

He ate the leftover gourmet meal I cooked for him tonight after I mixed in Scott and my leftover fish from dinner. And he is taking treats of dried beef liver very willingly.

Tonight I fed him a can of mighty dog that I had on hand from earlier this summer when he stopped eating his food. I was mixing it in with his dry to get him to eat and it was working for a short time. This time, I just let him have the can alone, and he scarfed it up. A small bit of food, but it is encouraging.

I took him out to 'go' and witnessed another blast of diarrhea. Liquidy brown fluid. I hope these new medications help him.

At least he is drinking water. I am going to call the vet in the morning to see if I can give him some kind of sports drink like gatorade, or if there is an electrolite drink for dogs on the market that I can give him. This diarrhea has got to stop, it is killing me just witnessing his distress.
