I had to post a new picture of Rafi. She hit a rough spot after Oxbow changed their recipe, but we immediately stopped that brand and she has been making strides with her weight and health ever since. Thanks again to Andrea for bringing that to my attention!
This is Rafi the day she came, January 8, 2011 (in case anyone would like a 'before' picture):
And here is Rafi today, September 11, 2011! I'm so proud of her progress! She is now eating some Beaphar Xtra Vital Care Plus soaked in water AND hard, and a lot of hay. She chews on wood like you wouldn't believe. She is not drooling anymore, so it is only a matter of time until her fur is nice a plush. Rafi was drooling due to her liver disease (fatty liver); her malo and dental disease (overgrown roots) are both gone.
Rafi is still on her special no-added-calcium/no-alfalfa-of-any-kind/no-added-sugar (including no acidophilus) diet.

Thanks guys! I hope she will continue. I'm nervous because it's fatty liver, but since our diet has been working well for Rafi, we have put Yoda and Ziggy on it, too, as they had symptoms of it when they came in.
I'll tell Rafi you are all cheering for her. She is such a sweet little girl, we just adore her here. She comes running, now, when I walk up and say "and where's my little princess punkin today?" lol
