My 11 year old dobie, Dixie, is in kidney failure. She's drinking alot of water, is hardly eating anything, and urinating all the time. She is my husband's constant companion and the "child of our marriage". Just when I think that the end is any day now, she goes outside to hunt moles and then eats some chicken and carrots. We love her so very much that we are beyond heartbroken. Is there any home remedy that would perk up her appetite?
