he has high blood pressure and kidney disease. he spent a night in the ER a couple of weeks ago. We've been going every day for sub cutaneous fluids. he seemed to be feeling better and eating more. he even looks better. he is 15 and his father had the same thing so i've tried not to expect too much but i was hoping for a little more time. they rechecked his kidney levels tonight and they are creeping up. they want to do more IV fluids next week. tonight i noticed he was breathing hard. I know that's a sign of kidney failure in humans so i assume it's the same with cats. He is still eating and going to the bathroom and doesn't act like he feels too terrible...(for example, he isn't hiding in the closet like he did last week) but now i'm just worried that the treatment isn't going to work. I'm very upset about it and don't know what to do with myself. i guess i just needed to vent to people who would understand.
