More about Mama

So a little more about Mama - the blood work that was done checked her kidney function and was on the low side of normal which is great! Checked her liver function, again on the low side of normal = Great! It checked a few other things that were all in the normal range but they arent as important as kidney and liver.

So the plan ... mama will stay on the appetite pills until I am out of them - we have about 4 more days worth if I give her 1/2 a pill 2 times a day - shes so small that Im thinking 1/2 a pill once a day might be enough.

She will get 100mL of fluids today and tomorrow and should be good - but will keep a watch. I have fluids at home and can give her these myself so that she does not have to go to the vets to do it.

She got the convenia antibotic shot - she responds well to that and its easier on her and I both not having to give her meds everyday. The vet saw her straining in the litter box like I had and it is believed that she most likely has a uniary tract infection or something of the sort. That could make her tired, not want to eat and cause a temperature.

Shon and I are going to be out of town this weekend but when we come back she will be going back on the prednisone - I had weined her off of it back beginning of May and her litterbox has been good since. However it seems that with her intestinal issues she may needs this to keep her from having flair ups like this one.

Last night I picked up a roasted chicken from the grocery store - she ate it like it was going to run away :) I didnt give her too much as I didnt want her to throw it up but she had plenty. She had some this morning as well. Last night she slept in the bed beside Shon for most of the night. Thankfully I think she is feeling better already. Now we just gotta get a couple of pounds back on her.
