Jack is doing well enough. This is the slowest he has ever bounced back from anything, and I'm not happy about it. I am starting to wonder if he wasn't having an issue with one of the medications he was on because he does seem a bit brighter once everything but the thyroid meds finished up. I still have some pain meds if I think he needs it and I still have the ability to give him fluids.. but I think I'm going to hold off for a bit and see how he does.
One thing I have noticed that has cropped up is he is starting to chew plastic again. He did this pretty badly when I first started him on home made raw food, and it abated pretty quickly once I started incorporating parsley into the raw diet. I thought that I'd take him outside and see if he wanted to chew on some grass.. and he did. it was a little hard for him to chew it since he is missing so many teeth, but he kept at it.. He was a bit freaked out being outside, but it was pretty obvious it made him feel better, so we hung out there quite a bit. (last time I took him outside he immediately said very clearly he wanted to go back inside)
He was even feeling so well he started playing. After this video I ran out of room on my cell phone, so I didn't get the video of him playing with the end of the leash. If my boy ever got lost outside, he would be a pretty impressive snaker..
He hasn't asked to go back outside, and he isn't been chewing any more plastic. I might see if he wants to go back out again later on in the week.
