Subject: [FH] Gus at vet on oxygen
Gus is at the emergency vet and is on oxygen and had an inj of
lasix. We brought him there late tonight because we felt that he
was having some difficulty breathing. This whole week he's been
(what we thought) trying to heave/cough up a furball, but now we are
not so sure that is what it was. I called the hospital we usually
take him to (1 1/2 hr away) and the person on the phone said if he's
been heaving like that for more than 2-3 days it's probably not a
furball and that we should bring him to the local emergency vet here
which is under 10 min. away. So, the vet here said that his
breathing seemed to labored somewhat but no major distress. I feel
terrible because I thought all week he's just had a furball and I've
been giving him furball remedy. I'm still not convinced it's not
but I just don't know. When I listened to his breathing right after
the heaving I could hear his respriation quite loud and also could
hear some crackling but not too badly. Does anyone have any
thoughts on this and how to differentiate between breathing
difficulty and furballs?
We hated to leave him there tonight...we've never been to this place
so it was all so foreign. I really miss him and hope we can bring
him home in the morning. I am going over early to give meds and to
see him. I just called and the tech said Gus is resting.
Please send a prayer for our sweet Gus.
