Skelly's last visit to the vet showed a slight drop in red cell count. I've received many suggestions about feeding him various kinds of meat, so I asked Dr. Fish what he might suggest. He said to go ahead and cook it, but liver might help with Skeletor's anemia. He then added... "if you can handle the smell."
I remember eating liver as a kid. (Completely against my will, mind you) I was NOT a picky eater growing up. Among my fondest memories is hearing other kids refer to me as "fatty four eyes" and such. Be that as it may... as much of a walking garbage disposal as I was, liver absolutely repulsed me. Liver and gizzards were the only things you couldn't get my fat ass to eat.
But I digress!
So, imagining the sweet aroma of pan-fried liver, I was hesitant to run out and pick it up from the grocer. In fact, I am not sure I had even seriously considered doing it. However, Kim returned home a couple of days later with a whole assortment of meats that many might not consider to be meant for human consumption. Yay.
We've got beef liver, smoked ham hocks and chicken liver!
I busted out the beef liver and split it into portion sizes to be frozen. Just about every morning for the past week, I've been cookin it up for Skelly to mix in with his dry food.
That is one lucky, lovable mutt!
Here's another installment in Skelly's training vids. Enjoy!
