I think I posted about her diarrhea - it seemed to go away, she had one bout on Sat but it stopped the day after so I didn't worry. She had a slight bit on Thurs night and Fri morning, but when I got home last night, she had some gunk coming out of one eye, no interest in coming for food, and she appeared dehydrated, so I rang the vet to book her in for this morning, good job I did as they were fully booked. I took her to the vet, and his recommendation was taking her to the emergency vets to be put on a drip for a couple of days as she was bout 5% dehydrated, but all he could feel was a slight thickening of the small intestine, and very kindly offered to take her over for me. The emergency vets have just rang, they quickly found out how uncooperative she was, and had put it down to the journey, so i told him that was normal behavour, they are going to give her a slight sedation so they can properly examine her, put her on a drip (I did warn them about her attacking when taken off last time), take bloods, try and get a fecal sample and also do an abdominal x-ray. Both vets have said that with her age, it is a worry in case of anything serious due to the length of time, so am feeling rather emotional again. Insurance company are going to love me, I only received the claim for the nose treatment this morning, and I imagine the claim for this diarrhea is going to be close to Â£200.
