she's had x rays to check for a blockage or foreign object. She's actually poohing.
She wasn't able to before?
....her temp was too high to come home. I explained to vet all my concerns. She wants to give it a bit longer....they have added some things to Viola's treatment and have been in contact with lab in california where Viola's blood is to try and expedite results.
Very glad you had that conversation with your vet, Deb.
It's good that she knows exactly where you stand on Viola's treatment. And a huge relief for you, I'm sure, that she knows.
I hope she is able to get the results of those tests sooner!
If it's any comfort to you, Pussa (the cat I mentioned earlier) had a very similar experience .... three vets (!) were unable to diagnose his ailment. Every time he finished a course of antibiotics his symptoms would return. Very, very sick cat. He ended up at Werribee (at the Melbourne Uni vet training facility) & they eventually diagnosed an extremely rare fungal disease which next to nothing was known about - they probably wrote a paper on it at the time) & successfully treated it. It took weeks & weeks to reach that point, a lot of it at vets' surgeries, like Viola.
So, you never know, these blood tests might just produce a similar result. My fingers tightly crossed that they do! They have to know what the disease is to know how to treat it. But, as I said, I'm very glad to know that your vet fully understands what you are willing to have Viola go through, in the meantime.
Seeing her and vet again tomorrow afternoon.
I hope you'll be able to spend more time with her this time. She'll love that!
Have you called today's opening off?
You need to rest after such a stressful week.
