Prancer Pie Update: 4:10 p.m., CST, I saw the Vet at 3:15 and he was impressed with what the fluids had done for Prancer. He saw a big change in his demeanor. Unfortunately his heart rate is still too high and he still has diarrhea. We are changing his food and this is only his second day of Forti Flora. We took a blood test and is now thinking we may be battling a secondary problem (IBD?) He had several encouraging paths to try today. I am getting a second opinion and checking with our local ( several hrs away) teaching vet hospital. We check in tomorrow for test results and check in Saturday to see if he needs fluids for the weekend. I think we've got everything covered.
I got to bring him home and he purred and talked the whole way. Upon arriving home, he went to hide in his favorite closet. He thinks his leg is broke from the wrap from the IV. I get to remove it in a couple of hours.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the well wishes, purrs, and ideas.
