Oh no! Any update? Did you find a new vet?

The sedative might make him out of it for awhile & some pets can’t tolerate certain antibiotics (made my foster dog throw up, but different ones were fine)

I really hope he’s okay!!!

oh no!!! I would definitely leave that vet. My cat has a habit of eating elastic (bands, stings, etc.) I took him to the vet because he was throwing up all the time and the vet told me that his throat was irritated (Uh. DUH, if you were throwing up all day, wouldn’t your throat be irritated to? What is CAUSING the vomiting?) So I switched vets and they put him into surgery immediately. He had a huge blockage in his tummy, which ended up being hair elastics and strings from his cat toys.

I’m so glad i decided to switch vets at that instant or else i would have lost him.

@UpstateCait: Just thought I’d chime in here with a positive recovery from pancreatitis. My best friends dog fell ill and they took awhile to diagnose it. She ended up with pancreatitis, and they actually had debated putting her down as they weren’t sure she’d actually make it.

With daily drop offs to the vet for fluids/meds, and lots of hope, she got better. So here’s to hoping on your end too! Keep taking him in each day, and things should improve. I figured I’d share a similar story, which ended up with a positive outcome 🙂

I’ll be thinking good thoughts for your furbaby!  I hope he’s all better soon!

Our little dog had to be admitted to the hospital last year for gastroenteritis and it was a really scary experience, so I definitely sympathize. She had a 105.8 fever, blood in her stool, and was throwing up every few minutes. She got to go home after two nights and we were sooo thankful!

PS – if you don’t have pet insurance, I highly recommend Petplan – we received a check that covered her entire hospital stay (minus our deductible) within a week of sending in the paperwork.

@UpstateCait: Check out the milk approved for cats, it is easily digestible and my cat loved it. I believe it comes in a “juice box” looking carton and you can get it for fairly cheap at local pet stores.

I hope that he feels better soon, I’m so sorry to hear about a sick furbaby. Positive thoughts your way and I agree find a new vet. Our vet is more than accomodating even when they are busy and I’m being over worrisome. They always make time to address my concerns and your vet should do the same for you!

Glad they finally diagnosed the problem. I’m sure he recover quickly!
