About Me and Jack

I got my dog, Jack, for my 4th birthday when he was only 6 weeks old. Now he is six years old and on July 1st I found out he has lymphoma. Lymphoma is a type of cancer. This blog is about me and jack-jack's experience through chemotherapy.

Feeding Jack

Feeding Jack at first was a challenge.  He wouldn't eat his dry food so we started feeding him chicken and rice.  Sometimes his stomach hurt bad enough to where he wouldn't eat chicken so we had  to give him slices of cheese.  When his stomach hurt really bad we fed him bread.  My mom says it's because chicken and cheese were to strong and bread was nice and plain.  When he started taking his treatment he felt good enough to have dry food mixed with canned food.  Then as he got better we just mixed water and dry food.  Now we just give him dry food.  It's funny because he doesn't eat it at first because he's used to fancy food. Haha!  Though, once he sees that the other dogs have the same food he starts to eat.  He's always the last to finish, then again he always has.  I'm really happy with the results of the cemo.  I mean HE'S EATING REGULAR FOOD.  His stomach doesn't seem to hurt anymore.  Yay!  :)


  1. Serra,
    I hope Jack gets better. You know that you are doing everything that you can to help him. I had a cat that had cancer and Dr. Zimmerman helped her and she lived for 2 more years. It is good to hear that he is feelin better.

  2. my dog boscoe has diabetes and sometimes doesn't want to eat. i have become very good at bribing him. he likes chicken, cheese, chopped up hotdog, canned beef broth, and those tiny little canned vienna sausages. not very nutritious but if you put a little in his food it usually gets him going. glad to hear that jack-jack is eating his kibble again.
