Amazingly, he’s doing better. I’m sure the antibiotics he’s been getting have played a big part in his recovery.
I also started adding fish oil to his morning baby food and l-Lysine morning mixture, bulking that up somewhat with some Nutrical.
He puked this morning for the first time in three days and that’s wonderful. That might be because he started grooming again and pulled off lots of nasty fur (his drool is like glue on his fur). I did get a Pepcid down him this morning.
Something else I started, and I don’t know how smart this is of me, is I started giving him a small amount of Metacam every other day. I think that’s helping him, too. His back has never seemed all that good ever since he’s been here, I wouldn’t doubt if there was some major injury to it in the past. Last week he was kneading the pillow on the sofa and moved just right that he slipped off the arm and his claws were caught in the pillow and he twisted a little trying to get loose (he needed help, it was that bad) and last night he fell off the back of the recliner. So, maybe the pain killer will help him a little.
I know we’d all feel better if this heat would let up, it’s taking its toll on all of us.
