prayers for our Fuzzy now. Took him in to the vet today. he kinda crashed last night. He was just getting a little weaker on getting up, he drinks out of a syringe (I feed 400 cc a day to him).But last night he couldn't get up at all, just laid on his side. Fell over in the litter box, too weak. |
I took him in today, wanted to check him before I make that awful decision. Vet found he had very aenlarged thyroid gland and a super fast heart rate. He's thinking it may be thyroid, which I'd love it! But he's so down, not sure he's able to come back. And all so quick. A couple weeks ago, he was pretty normal.
Then he got a little weaker, I took in a urine sample to check his kidney specific gravity, and they found an UTI. I gave him Clavamox, he perked up, was fine again. But again went downhill a bit, I broughtin another sample yesterday. Got more Clavamox, but he crashed last night, just laid, too weak to stand.
so we did bloodwork today. i get results tomorrow, if it's thyroid maybe we can save him if his kidneys aren't too bad. If it's not thyroid, we may be letting him go if he's in major kidney failure.
Please say some prayers. I love Fuzzy, he's such an angel. He's 17 1/2 years old so I know things can happen, but I so hope it's not now.
