I am really out of touch with things lately since Inky's been so sick. His last blood work was improved though...BUN 28 down from 79 and CRE 2.3 down from 2.9 which normal is 2.1 so that is much better...I have taken him for fluids 3 times and I am not doing it anymore...I know they need them, but

Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts for Inky..I guess we are holding our own for now..He had 150ml sub-q fluids on Fri..and was to have more on Sunday, but since he is eating and drinking now and we go to the vet on Monday, I thought we would wait for her to check him out..It really

Hi guys, Thanks again for the help..I got Inky home around 6pm, and the first thing I did was get him some food. I had all his stuff set up in the living room so my dog wouldn't bother him or his food..I put some k/d in a bowl and he went for it..I guess he has been eating some thru out the night

Inky didn't get to come home today as he threw up in the night so they had to put him back on injections to try to stop that..He won't eat now either, and he ate good for me on Monday..They have added regalan to the list of meds. It seems to make him real drowsy, too.. Michelle, you asked if the

Hi Belinda, I had heard about all that, too..and I am concerned about it...He didn't eat much on Tues, but did for me on Monday...I tried this morning to get him to eat and he wouldn't..only 1/2 tsp...I am bringing him home this afternoon late...he will be off the IV as he has been on IV fluids

Hi, I know Inky isn't Felv+, but I need some help here...I went out of town last week so I had to board Bandy and Inky since they are both on meds...Anyway, Inky got sick while I was gone. They called me and said he was quite dehydrated so they wanted to start an IV after they had already done

Hi, Bandy had to stay on doxy for awhile until they ruled out hemobart. He was also on Lysine and interferon, baytril and pred at the same time...I just made sure that I gave him food before and after the doxy..something about it irritating them..Usually, I would give him his interferon right

Hi all, I wanted you all to know that Inky is 20 now..this is his birthday week...He is doing ok, eating good. I guess the hyperT keeps him so thin...He is on a small dose of tapazole now so maybe it will help..He still comes and jumps on my computer table with me and gets up on the bath tub.
