Misomie Posted July 8, 2016 Share Posted July 8, 2016 I went to AnthroCon for a week and left my pups behind. One was stressed and the other didn't care. The stressed one stopped eating and started vomiting and pottying in the house. I figured he was just depressed. I told my boyfriend to take him to the vets if he stopped drinking. Anyways, I came back and he still refused food (he had lost almost 10 pounds). I took him to the vets and was quoted $880 (X-ray, blood work, ect). I just got back from a con so I only had a little money left so they cut a few things to focus on the most important. Before accepting that plan, we applied for care credit and were granted 2k on the spot so we opted for the full plan. His X-Rays showed heavy inflammation in his intestines and blood tests showed a heavy infection. They said they couldn't see something blocking the intestines but want me to bring him back on Monday for new ones to see if swelling went down or if there is a blockag (They did comment that his hips look really healthy though). They are not sure of the exact cause but gave him meds for the top two possibilities (one being an ulcer as there is digested blood in his stool). In the end he was prescribed 6 meds (3 daily, 2 12 hour, 1 8 hour) that included probiotics, antacids, ect. He was also given fluids. He did start feeling a lot better after the meds kicked in and he started acting more like his normal self. He still has a long ways to go but him eating again is a pretty good step in the right direction. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
