Merlyn went to the vet .... he's not happy with me at all now!
- Hi all,
We decided that we didn't want to chance anything and end up at the ER
tonight or tomorrow, so I took Merlyn in to the vet today. They
checked him over, did an X-ray of his gut, and sure enough, there was
a "back up". Poor kitty got an enema :( Fortunately for him, it
worked (unfortunate, however, for our entryway: he practically
"exploded" when we got home). And on top of everything, he got a BATH
(he needed it from head to toe). He's curled up, sleeping pretty
deeply right now. Poor little guy. Please keep him in your thoughts
and prayers -- he was pretty wrung out earlier this afternoon and has
yet to eat anything.
We will be including hairball remedy in his regimen now to prevent
this from happening again. We may also need to increase his fluids
for the CRF just a tiny bit. Vet ran his BUN and creat there in the
office, and although the BUN was higher than Merlyn's normal, the
creat was right where it always is. Heart was fine (for Merlyn), and
all else checked out ok.
Thank you, all, for your e-mails of suggestions and support. We all
appreciate this list SO much.
Merlyn & Tully
