Default Before-Now shots, Midnight..

Actually I think he might have gained a little bit.. which indicates that without chlorine his digestive enzymes are working better, I am still gonna order the medication though just in case. (its only added enzymes on the food anyhow) but what do you guys think, isnt there a bit of an improvement??

Before:







And after......









So what do you guys think? does he look any better? or is it imagination?

monkey YES YES - he looks so much better. He has lost the 'shelf' on his bum. Its definitely not your imagination. Its hard to be objective when you see him everyday but he certainly looks 100% better. In fact once he gets some muscle tone he'll be great. He's a beautiful boy!

Definitely! He's still skinny but his bones have got a bit of a covering now with some muscle tone and he looks much less skeletal. He has a fantastic gloss to his coat in the new pictures too...which shows you're doing something right as the health is literally shining from him.

Give yourself a pat on the back Monkey, you deserve it!

He definitely has, the ridge on his bum has filled out, his coat looks so shiny and his face has filled out nicely. You have done a great job!

Monkey did you get this diagnosed at EPI? What are you ordering for it, most vets have the meds to administer immediately?

I would not say 100% better, but much better, he is a gorgeous Rotty and it is such a pity this dog was in fact starved to almost death as this does kill. They are so hungry and nothing digests, so not vetting him the people that owned him left his starve.

He is going to have to live on meds, but so cheap for a life of beauty. His coat shows a promising sign of recovery and bright eyes, I have seen dogs with this disease. It is a Shepherd one, but can happen to any dog any size. I am so glad your helping this lovely dog. If you ever place him, make a contract that he is to have care for his life or you can retrieve him back.

The best to you and your hard working to save this nice dog. Rottys are so forgiving, I love the breed alot. Only a person that is so hungry for food would understand how this dog felt being so hungry also and not knowing why he was? I do think dogs have a soul, feelings of hurt, etc. Bless your heart Monkey and Midnight.

Thanks guys, and shep, no it's not diagnosed but the medication is enzymes u add to the food and that is the med they are on the rest of their life. You also have booster shots etc.. but I cant afford all that so Im gonna try to medecin you buy and if that works I can tell the vet what to aim on isntead of goin do the more expensive text first and then it might not be that... that's my issue...

but thanks all Im fairly proud... its a little step...

He looks lovely, I don't get how his old owners let him get in that state.
