Cookin’ for Levi, the Dog! Tweet 14th November 201214/11/12 Amy's Blog Amy Hanten 9 Comments Our dog, Levi has had a tough week. At 14 years old, our chocolate lab is a senior, and is slowing down quite a bit. Aren’t we all. Anyway, I could just tell he wasn’t feeling well, so I rushed him to the vet this week. Yikes, I was so nervous! They ran some tests. It seemed like it took forever for the results! Let’s just say I have very short finger nails now. Finally, the vet called us into the office. Good news. He says it looks like Levi just has an infection. He gave us some antibiotics and prescribed a special diet. Get this. I now am cooking for a dog. Yep, it’s true! 4 cups of lean ground beef mixed with rice every day until he feels better. Let’s just say Levi is loving it! Not sure he’ll ever go back to dry dog food now! LOL! Anyway, we’re taking it day by day but, he seems to be doing better. Have you ever cooked for your dog? Did it help? I’m willing to do whatever it takes to keep this good old boy happy and comfortable. But, when it’s time, I know we’ll have to let him go. Until then, I’ll keep cookin’!
