IV Is What Keeps Daifoo Alive (2009-07-08)

Just like last treatment, Daifoo finished his course on the second day.

His life or I should say health, has come down to this: He will lose appetite and become dehydrated at some stage, then he'll be admitted for IV fluids and nutrients and he'll get well.  Then he'll lose appetite again and the cycle repeats itself.

The vet asked me to carefully think about Daifoo's future regarding the course of action:  We can either give him the expensive treatment of IV fluid and nutrients replacement which may give him momentary wellness at best or we can force-feed Daifoo liquid diet till he gets so weak that his body will give out. 

How can I possibly make that decision?
