Guest gordysmom96 Posted July 16, 2016 Share Posted July 16, 2016 My girl was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last January. The tumor was removed in February, however, not all could be excised. Long story short, she's been a pretty good eater until last month when she stopped eating raw AM meal of ground burger (beef, turkey or venison). She LOVED venison of any form, now she won't eat it! She even stopped eating raw chicken necks for dinner. I've been trying many foods and found she wants only turkey ham or turkey lunchmeat with no kibble. (She ate kibble for a few days, but that depended on how it was supplemented). Today, I bought more lunchmeat, which she scarfed down after eating only OMA's turkey heart treats yesterday. I'm stymied. Thinking part of it is the meds she taking have affected her tastebuds, just like people undergoing cancer treatment. (I gave her a Pepcid AC this morning to calm her stomach, hoping it would stimulate an appetite). Currently, her meds are Chlorambucil 2.8 mg (1x daily), 400 mg. Pentoxyfylline for SLO nail condition and 3 fish oil caps 3x/day; 35 mg Deramaxx in the evening; 1 probiotic daily. Last night she was very restless - moving from her bed in our bedroom then downstairs, back upstairs, out to pee in the middle of the night, etc. Needless to say, I'm exhausted today. My thought about the restlessness is lack of appetite but hungry at the same time. Anyone experience this with cancer greys? I should post this on the Health link too.
