- Dear All,
I just wanted to extend a very big heartful thanks for all of your words and messages the other day, I had been feeling desperately alone and concerned, but both the support and your words here helped enormously I cant thank you all enough for all the caring and wise words of support.
We didnt see her regular vet yesterday when I took her and needless to say the wheezing etc had stopped. I have though been promised the European Specialist intern and the cardiologist will see her as soon as possible next week, The vet felt the excess mucus was either renal related, Ibd related or heart, her lungs sounded clear, but, more tests next week. I cant get a straight answer as to why she was choking again but did voice my suspicions about the size of the thyroid gland in her throat causing problems, to which he agreed.
One interesting thing in her case tho, there is a common thread to both times this has happened, both times for the 2 days before I had been giving her chicken flavoured pill pockets, I have not wanted to use them as the ingredients inc both gluten and wheat and soy, but, this weekend I had tried some again. The vet does think possibly in Annas case her kidneys arent liking these pockets or her gut, hence the absolute excess of mucus which she vomits but cant shift entirely. I wont be using them anymore needless to say.
I'm about to post a little more about her on here also,
Meanwhile just many huge hugs,
Helen and Anna
