    We have been hand feeding him, but the bugger manages to spit out the food, same goes with the medication...but constantly trying.
    Will try the ice chips a/o a syringe. Thank you for your suggestions.

    I had a puppy w/hydrocephalus and we had to hand feed him. We would give him water in a syringe, and hand feed him clumps of wet food... try anything to tempt his appetite canned dog food, or maybe some beef/chicken w/rice. For meds what I do is make a meatball w/meat or cheese that way they swallow it. I also give Walter his meds hidden in a small ball of peanut butter, it sticks in their mouth and they can't separate the pill.

    I'm glad to read he's home now. Chumley had a grand mal seizure about 2 months ago. Don't know how much insight or help I can give as his situation seems a lot different. I depended so much on other members like @Libra926 and @JeannieCO for information and they were awesome! Chum is almost 6 and had no history of them..he does have head tremors since he was a puppy. one Sunday he had a few petit mal seizures and then the big one that night. I know how you felt because it was extremely traumatic. We rushed him to emergency and they out him on phenobarbital an suggested an MRI saying usually in dogs over 6 they recommend it to see if brain tumor. He's almost 6 and I went for it. No tumors were found and vet said treatment for now is keep him on phenobarbital for 6 months then take him off if no more seizures and see if they come back. If they do it could be epilepsy. So far it's 2 and 1/2 months without another one. He was very lethargic at the beginning and unsteady on his feet but has improved since then.
    i hope you get to the bottom of what's going on and Jax gets better. Sorry I'm not much help but I know how you feel .
    praying for Jax!

    Wow so nice to have him home. It's like kids. They're sick and we hand spoon them, sleep with them till the start getting up on their own.

    I dont know what J eats. If it's kibbles, give him real food like cook turkey and veggies till he's all better. Sneak his meds in it. Home cooking, dogs dont need as much water as it's already full of moisture. Spoil him!!!

    Thank you for all the suggestions. He is eating better now- boiled chicken, veggies, rice and a mix of canned dog food. Medication seems to be going down as well. He has been having twitches on the right side of his face and last night he had what looked like a mild seizure. He was moaning, slightly agitated and then suddenly urinated - which is completely out of character for him.

    Thanks for the update.

    We are glad to hear that Jaxson is eating now. I guess time and patience are needed. Continued prayers and positive thoughts.

    C'mon Jaxson let's play basketball.

    My goodness...what a mess. I applaud your determination and your devotion to your bully. I just hope that your team can figure out what ails him and get it sorted. He's a mighty handsome boy and it broke my heart to see him hooked up in ICU. I'm glad he's home now. I'm praying for a good outcome to this ordeal.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind
