Pepper seems to be back on her food. She didn't want to eat this last week. I think it's because my son has a bone infection and having dental treatment for it. (Local dentist told him there was NOTHING WRONG and he shouldn't be in pain. Found a dentist in the city who took him RIGHT AWAY and has been treating him for a month for this 'nothing wrong with you' bone infection) Pepper's been at his side every moment. He's had real progress the past two days so Pepper is feeling better too. This morning, when I took her out, she stuck her head in the kibble bag and grabbed a snack. =) =) I'm glad she's back to her old self.
STILL Have not heard back from the vet - have to call him today and see what gives!
