      He’s not on heparin, the vet said it won’t dissolve the clot & they would consider this if we decide to keep treatment going.  He’s barely improved & he’s on aggressive pain meds.  A new vet comes in at 6 pm so I want to see what he has to say.  I just hate to lose him but I hate to see him suffering.

      they should have given him heparin to help dissolve the clot, did they do anything like that?

      My cat sitter called to say Jetsam won’t eat, had labored breathing, & seemed weak, not moving much.  I was 2 1/2 hrs away, but got home as soon as I could & found him crying & unable to move his rear end.  I took right to the Emergency vets & they said he threw a thrombus, had fluid in his lungs, was in pain & the vet was asking me to put him down right then & there, something I couldn’t do.  My husband is 5 hours away so I spoke with him & we want to wait to see how he does in a couple of hours & when he gets home we’ll make some decisions.  When I saw him in the oxygen chamber he was pretty unresponsive to me & could barely lift his head.
      What can we expect? What should we ask or be aware of?  This is the first time this happened & he was just 3 July 1.  He’s my little character, does funny things & I just can’t stop crying thinking about him & what might have to be.  Suggestions & experience would be welcomed.
