The topic: Pete update


His breathing is back to normal. The URI and the pneumonia would seem to be resolved. But he still has some nasty diarrhea.

Taking care of the pancreatitis did not help it at all. As a matter of fact, it actually seems worse. At night, I have end to end disposable pads on the sofa because of his pooping.  During the day, he stays on one end, so I've got a pad under him there. I don't think he always knows he's going to go. I hear him fart and he's awake and looking at me. Except he's passed more than wind.

I clean him off and change out the pad. He doesn't like being cleaned off.

Anyway, I called the vet's office yesterday and she prescribed flagyl for him. I know I was concerned when Bernadette was given that, but she had a lot more going on that he does. And he has a strong heart. I started him on it last night.

His appetite has picked up (he's eaten over a can of food so far today) and he's sleeping a lot better than he had been. The last time he pooped was seven hours ago, so that's slowed down somewhat.

If this helps, it would be a really good thing. I hate cleaning up multiple piles of juicy cat poo in the morning. This morning there were four or five. And the thing is to see them before I step in them. Yeah, it's icky.

So, fingers crossed....

Besides the flaked pumpkin that’s added to their food at night, Pete gets Fortiflora. He’s been getting it for a couple of months. Once every couple of weeks he has a poop so pretty I’d like to bronze it, but that would be weird.

Dang it, I was hoping you could add the probiotics and it would help! I know all about getting a good poop and wanting to bronze it, or at least do something to remember it! HAHA I had a pup who had runny poos for almost a year, it took that long to figure him out! Finally ended up feeding him nothing but pumpkin and eggs and probiotics for almost a week and half and that finally cleared him up! After food changes, doc visits, antibiotics and all that good jazz!
