Hi Denise,

GLOW for Dominique from me, too.

When you check in with the vet, ask for a food syringe. Also, ask about an appetite stimulant. You can usually add a bit of water to the baby food and squirt it in with the syringe or even puree some of the canned c/d with water to get it in. The food syringe is much easier to use than trying to force feed with a spoon or your fingers.

In trying different things to entice her, remember a cat relies more on smell than taste to lure them in. I've found that sometimes a few drops of bacon fat or tuna water will encourage them to try eating.

Hope all goes well and keep us posted.
