Jack has not been himself since Wednesday night/Thursday morning. He seemed out of sorts Wed night and then Thurs am barfed up a ton of food - the previous night’s dinner and late nite snack. He nibbled a bit of food for breakfast and barfed it up while I was at work. Ate some food that night that stayed down but nothing all Friday and no breakfast Sat. All thru this he has had no temp, just at 101.7 which is in the ballpark for him. So I took him to the vet. She says his guts feel normal, bladder feels nice and soft, he is not dehydrated and she saw no need for xrays so we ran a basic blood panel which came back normal except for ever so slightly elevated albumen which she says could show an infection brewing but she was not entirely convinced. She sent me home and told me to get some Pepcid in him and try to get him to eat. He nibbled a bit of canned food (less than a teaspoonful) and that was it. Refused late night feed and this AM breakfast. So today, Sunday, I got him to eat a three handfuls of Temptations treats but that was all he wanted. He walked away after that when normally he would eat them until he exploded. I called vet today to check in with her and because my phone service is so jacked up here I missed all her calls. (Sitting right next to phone and it never rang just went to back line. I hate magic jack ) So question is now what the he** do I do with him? Still no real temp, still hydrated. But not peeing or pooping - no surprise since there is no input there is no output. Do I force feed him? Give him sub-cutaneous fluids? Feed him more treats? At this point, I will feed him WHATever he will eat. All my instincts are telling me he is constipated but the vet says no.
Apologies for this being all over the place but I am rather worried. I have been hit hard by a couple of things in my life and do not need the third shoe to drop.
