In the Nick of Time Part 5
Nick came in yesterday for his weekly acupuncture and weight check. He’s holding steady on weight – which is at least better than inching back up to his obese range. When I released Nick to his owner’s care, I laid down very strict feeding instructions – one directive being that if Nick didn’t eat his food within five minutes, they were to remove his dish. Nick’s dad worried that maybe the little guy may not get enough if he was pouting a lot. However, since he hasn’t lost an ounce, that worry was eliminated.
The better news is that Nick’s mom and dad haven’t been awakened by his coughing during the night. They think he’s coughing much less since our acupuncture treatment.
What I am really pleased about is Nick’s dad becoming more involved in his care. We have had several good discussions about chiropractic and acupuncture – all good for the progress of Nick.
I can’t wait to see what questions Nick’s dad has next week.
