On Monday I had to take Nanuchy back to the vets. You can imagine how thrilled she was to be back, and for you who are keeping count that is 3 vet visits in 2 weeks. Unlike Patachou who loved going to the vets, Nanuchy not so much. The night before she had had horrible diarrhea. It seems Little Ms Thing decided to pick up something on one of the walks (since really she didn't have enough going on lol) and she was loaded with bacteria (vets words lol). So she got 3 additional meds to help her feel better. She lost another lb between Friday and Monday. She has lost 4 lbs since May and now weighs 23.5 lbs.
She wouldn't touch 1 of the kinds of canned food the vet recommended. She did eat a bit of the other canned food, only about 1/8 of a can which isn't enough. Vet recommended that I boil rice and chicken for her again and mix it with that 1 can. In addition I've been adding canned pumpkin (100% pumpkin, good stuff clears up both diarrhea and constipation).
Well yesterday for the first time in over 3 weeks Nanuchy ate almost all her breakfast and dinner and kept it down. I'm sooo excited. The meds are kicking in and this morning she actually licked her bowl clean!!! She's still drinking quite a bit of water but a bit less than before so hopefully all this is slowing down the kidney failure. The leaking seems to have gotten quite a bit better since she has been on the meds for that too. I was also able to get her to take her meds in small pieces of sliced cheese (she wouldn't eat it due to feeling sick so I had to shove it down her throat, which is a scary proposition on most days lol)
Pirata likes to sit on the toilet in the morning and watch me get ready. Isn't she too cute?? LOL In the bathtub I had to wash one of the dog beds since my sister's dog threw up on it. Poor baby. Squeaky (dog) and Dallas (cat) stayed at my place on Tuesday so my sister could move into her new apt without having to worry about them. I guess it was too much excitement for her.
And here is the rest of the crew while I'm getting ready, Patches on the bed, Nanuchy and Sonja who as usual looks like she is ready to run LOL.
I wanted to thank all of you for all the prayers for my special little girl. It has been a rough few weeks. I know the unavoidable will still happen but am grateful that she at least now will be able to enjoy whatever time she has left.
